Is there a faster way to load songs into jukebox?

I just loaded 1 of many CD's that I burned into the jukebox today and it seemed to take a minute a song to load while I wasn't even listening to it. I like the idea of having all my songs to pick from without having my phone plugged into the port or looking at my phone when I want to switch songs when using it with the blue tooth. There has to be a quicker way?

It should, but keep in mind the CD Player will only load one CD at a time (cause the rest of the space is used up by the HDD for the Nav System)

I got a thread somewhere around here on "Radio HDD Size".

Keep in mind I do not have one of these World-Class Trucks yet and i'm an IT.

My original plan was to:

Locate the HDD inside the dash (believe it's behind the head unit somewhere)
Note the physical connectors (SATA or ZIF)
Note the physical size (3.5, 2.5, 1.8, ect.)
Connect it to my home computer and note the drive capacity, as well as load all of my songs onto it that way.

I believe the HDD size is ~12GB so enough for some users but I'd like all of my library wherever I go so...

With the information collected above I was going to:
Check around for drives that had the same physical size and connectors as the stock drive
Buy the highest-capacity drive possible (or even modify the truck to fit a 3.5 drive)
Copy all the Ford files to the new drive and install it in the truck.
- The truck's nav system *should* behave normally as all you did was upgrade the capacity of that drive; this goes without saying if there is a limit on how many songs the software (with Microsoft Sync) can index.
-- Example: If the index limit is only 5,000 and you got any more loaded on that drive, the system will only pick up the 5,000 no matter what size drive you put in there.
