    Does Model S natively play Windows Media Audio (WMA) lossless files by default? What's the best way to have my entire music library of about 220GB in the car and will I be able to play music by genre? I usually listen to music by genre in random order to make my own radio station..

    I assume I can store all the music in a USB SSD drive?

    Yup, should work fine depending on how the drive is formatted (remember the vehicle is running some flavor of Ubuntu). FAT32, while outdated, is safe. Ext would probably work as well. A couple owners here even have a hub with several big hard drives connected.

    Very easy to copy onto a USB straight from your file manager. Metadata doesn't always make it over though, like artwork, artist and album. Song always seems to. Some do and some don't and I haven't been able to figure out why.
