    What a freakin piece of shit!!!:rl: It won't even read the whole title of the song or artist if it's too long! It just chops off the last part of the title. My titles aren't super long either. For an item this expensive, it should read the whole freakin title! My $200 head unit before read it perfectly fine. My only dislike I guess.:wtc:

    Is it possible you are using the wrong ID3 tag version? Or, does it state in the manual that it will only accept certain title lengths?

    I am using the correct version. It supports both version 1 and 2. The manual states a maximum of 30 characters, which isn't really all that much. My last unit supports like 256 or something like that.:hs:

    Strange. Does Alpine have any way to update the firmware?

    i thought the i-personalize function was so you update your deck?

    my 9833 is coming soon... whats the big deal about having the entire title anyways?

    Do you really need a title longer than 30 characters? what's so important about this anyways? my Sony will scroll everything, although Nero shortens the length of some files automatically.
