external CD player


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

My 2021 Legacy does not have a cd player. I have tried to use my LG external cd player by using the USB connection but for whatever reason it is not recognized.

Am I missing something? Any suggestions?


Thanks in advance....

External CD player is unlikely to be recognized by audio system in your car; it was not designed to do that.

Your best bet is to rip the content of the CDs into MP3 files and put them on USB stick which your audio system *should* recognize and allow you to play MP3 tracks from USB stick. Bonus point - fewer scratches on your CDs.

Media Player on Windows can rip CDs into multiple audio file formats.
