    Good Afternoon everyone!

    So I recently upgraded from an iPhone 3Gs to a Samsung Galaxy S3. So far I really like my new phone except there's one caveat I've noticed. When I had my music on the internal SD card it would read my music through the USB connection and I could use the voice controls with it. Voice controls being "Play Artist xxx, Play Track yyy, etc. etc." Though for some reason I would have to reseat the cable a couple of times before it would index properly. Still though, it would eventually work. Now a few days ago I put a microSD in my phone and transferred the music to that Sync won't read it. Is there anyway I can get it to? I've rooted my phone and downloaded several USB Mass Storage apps but none seem to work. Does anyone have a suggestion or a solution?

    Alternatively if I could get S Voice to be read through Sync instead that might work but I don't know how to make that happen.

    Thank you in advance for your help! :-)

    I've heard of other people getting Siri to work with other bluetooth HUs but I'm not sure how. Then again I don't have Siri.

    Correct. I had no issues with Siri but S Voice does not play well with Sync

    So you have done the "Bluetooth Audio" in the car to play audio via Bluetooth? That works MOSTLY, but I don't think S-voice knows to listen to the microphone in the car via SYNC.

    I did a little more research. S-Voice does not however Vlingo has an in-car feature that may be able to. I'm going to have to play with it this weekend when I have some time. Now that i think about it ideally it would be best to use USB voice controls (e.g. Play Track, Play Artist, etc.) via Bluetooth. That way I can also receive incoming calls and texts.

    Just downloaded Vlingo but it doesn't work. Everytime i launch the in-car features, the app crashes on my S3

    Sync's USB option only connects with the internal memory on devices - unfortunately, external memory isn't supported because technically it isn't part of the phone. I recommend just using bluetooth audio.

    Yeah I've kinda given up on this project. Kinda sucks too because I used that feature all the time. Oh well. At least with bluetooth I have access to more features.
