I looked through the USB support Corporate Bulletin #09-08-44-013C, and didn't get any specific answers. From what I gather, any flash drive should work, but only certain mp3 players work.
I have a generic hp 8gb flash drive, with all of my music on it in mp3 format. I believe the bit rate is 320, if i remember correctly. Its not the best, because the aftermarket radio in my truck didnt support the higher bit rates.
Now on to my issue,
I put the drive into the cruze, and it comes up and says drive not supported, you can click done, and it goes back to playing the radio. If you dont click done, just wait about two or three seconds, then a screen shows up with the USB drive and the name of the flash drive (like it should when switching inputs), just for a second. Then it shows a song title/artist and such, and plays the song for about one second. Then goes back to playing the radio
I tried cycling through the devices but it doesn't show up anymore. If you pull the flash drive out, then reinsert it, it does the same thing. Even playing where it left off the first second. I have listened to the first five seconds this way.
Is there a certain way the files have to be located? Can they not be in folders? I deleted a couple word documents off of the flash drive in case it was seeing those and saying not supported. Only thing on there is mp3s sorted in folders by album and artist. Ripped from my cds with windows media player. Im wondering if there are some hidden files (like album covers or something) on there that could be conflicting? Anyone know if you can have other documents on a flash drive with music work on a gm radio? The ipod works fine in the car, and the flash drive works in everything else...Ideas?
