I bought a new 16gig SanDisk flash drive. I formatted it to FAT32 to work in my car. When I plug it in it doesn't work, says "error".
I have two other flash drives that work fine in the car but this one will not work.
Any suggestions? The options I have for format are exFAT, NSTF and FAT32.
Yes, sminlal is probably right, that makes sense. I will check that. 8 gig for both of the ones that work formatted to FAT32 and this new one is 16 gig same format so 8gig might be the max that I can use.
try changing the allocation/transfer rate. computers can transfer data much faster than a deck in a vehicle. a car audio deck is usually good up to a few hundred kb, the setting on your new flash drive is probably defaulted in the thoudands.

I have a problem with my stereo recognising my flash drive. I used to use a 1TB hard drive plugged into the usb of my car dash, not the stereo its self (build into the car) and it worked perfect but it was too bulky and had to use a usb cable. I bought a flash drive thinking it would solve this problem, but its not recognising my 64GB flash??? What do I do?!
