    I bought a USB 3.0, 32 GB San Disk flash drive from my local Wal-Mart but when I tried using it in the vehicle's arm rest USB port, it said it can not read the media.
    It transferred and downloaded music off my PC fine but it did not show when installed in the vehicle.
    Does anyone know why this is?
    Is there a flash drive 'specifically' made to be used in Dodge vehicles?

    Sounds like it may be a formatting problem.

    Still No Good....

    I still can't get one to work.
    I tried converting YouTube music to an mp3 format with an online converter yet it still would not recognize the media.
    Is there an already made mp3 flash drive that eliminates the need to convert?
    Can anyone please help me? [​IMG]

    I'll have to check what mine is formatted to, but I think it's Fat32.... If it's NTFS, it will not work...

    Any one will work in our cars, it just has to be formatted to the right filing system.

    I have a pny 32gig formatted to fat32 it works fine, holds plenty of music. I also have 2016 challenger. Hope that helps.

    I refuse to tiptoe thru life only to arrive safely at Death.

    I have a Sandisk 2.0 32gb and don't have any issues. Both my PNY 3.0 seem to be slower to load and recognize for some reason. But it will work after about one minute of wait time.

    I cannot get mine to play at all. We have tried several Sandisks and nothing works. We have tried different formats and nothing works. When we download from a CD to the Sandisk it will play back on our PC but not in the car. When I insert the Sandisk in the port, I get "Files not supported" on the dash display. My local Dodge dealer has no answers either.

    Advise please?

    Why not just use your phone? There's plenty of ways to get music for free on there and all you need to do is plug it into USB or Bluetooth. Then you won't have to worry about any of that.
