The problem of USB flash drives not being recognised by some automobiles and its solution

USB flash drives are formatted during production with one of the USB format standards. These include Fat 16, Fat32, Exfat, and NTFS formats.

In recent years, some of the issues encountered include:
– My new car didn’t play mp3 files from the USB flash drive, but it worked in another car.
– Files that work on my computer don’t work when plugged into the car’s USB port.
– I can’t see the files on my flash drive when I plug it into my car’s USB port, but they are visible when I plug it into another car.
– Why can’t my car see the USB drive when another car can?
To solve these questions, unfortunately, you’ll have to go through a trial-and-error process to find out which format is compatible with your car model and its USB port.

You’ll need to format the USB flash drive connected to your computer. Right-click it in “My Computer” and select the Format option. Then, you will have to try formatting it with “Fat32, NTFS, ExFAT” options, one at a time.

After formatting it to Fat32, load a few files and check if your car’s USB port can recognize the flash drive If it doesn’t see the USB drive, next try formatting it with the NTFS option, reload files, and test it in your vehicle. If it still doesn’t work, you may need to format it with the ExFAT option.

If a USB flash drive works in one place but not in another, it is definitely not broken.
