    Can't play AIFF files downloaded from hdtracks.com

    I downloaded an album from hdtracks.com in AIFF format, 96kHz/24bit and copied it to a USB. The songs play fine on my Mac. In the Model S the display shows the album and songs correctly, but all I get is static when I play it. Playing a mp3 file from the same USB plays fine. I thought the car can play AIFF files. Is the problem the high definition?

    But are your AIFF files ripped from CD or downloaded 24-bit files?

    The car only plays 16 bit AIFF files. Convert your 24 bit songs to FLAC or WAV to play in your car.

    I can confirm that the car plays FLAC 24/48, 96 and 192 HD tracks.

    You can convert your AIFF HD files to FLAC HD and the car will play them.
