You must put your own memory card in the slot located in the center console.

Your car doesn't come with one. You put your own memory card in the memory card slot.

Not really sure what itís got to do with the Radio though! If it was Media Sources then I understand.

OP - you can put music, audio books, videos etc on a SD card and/or USB and select from Media to play.

The radio is simply telling you that to access this multi-media function (SD card media), you need to insert a memory card. Otherwise, use a different media source.

A blank card will give you what's on it, which since it's blank is nothing. You need to put data, like music on the card, then insert it into the card reader. Once you do that, you can play what you stored on the card through your system. Read your owners manual on the Radio and the different types of sources you can play, including memory cards.

Did you buy the car from a dealer? The radio should already be active. Go see your MB dealer.

OK. I don't know if we can solve why your radio doesn't work. It likely needs to be seen by your dealer and that's why we have new car warranties. When you took delivery, didn't the new delivery concierge walk you through all the systems in the car to ensure all systems worked and you had familiarity?

They should give you a loaner. It's either take it to the dealer and have them make the radio right or do without. There's only so much we forum members can suggest.

Could it be that you are trying to use the SiriusXM radio? That needs a card?
