What exactly are you trying to do with the USB? If you are trying to play video through the USB you probably are going to find out that it cannot be done. I would suggest reading the manual again and you will most likely see that playing movies from the Card reader or USB will not be done. Only music and photos will be played, video files will need to be played on disc or sent into this unit from another player via the video input. What you can do is hook up a media player that is commonly used for Home A/V systems to play files from your computer on your TV. They are small enough that you can place them anywhere and hide the wires easily. I've done this before in my car so I know it will work. You can now buy a cheap player for less than $20 if you watch for sales (look for one that runs on 12Volts DC so it's easier to hook up directly in your car). You also may be able to connect a handheld media player to the video inputs but is less convenient than changing out a SD Card or USB Stick that you can transfer from your computer in a few minutes.

    i had the same problem. It is illegal to watch videos while driving hence why they dont tell you how to play youtube off of card and usb. But after hours of testing converted videos here what works for me. download pazera free flv to avi converter. after that you will have to custom convert the videos with these format is MPG custom MPEG-2/ FPS 29.97. Audio mp3-mpeg- layer 3/ bit rate 128 and i added stereo-2 for kicks. last but not least custom resolution 720x480. convert and it works :)

Boss bv9976 wont play videos from USB?! Anyone know??

The Boss BV9976B supports playback of JPEG/MP4 and DIVX formats. Double-check to make sure your movies are in one of these formats. Then triple-check. Download a converter to convert your movies to the proper format.

The mini USB port of my new Boss BV9976 doesn't recognize my i-Phone 4, but it works fantastic with DVD's, even if the vehicle is in movement.

It's possible that the Boss unit works with iPod and iPhone 3 and not the four. Does the unit state that it works with iPod/iPhone? Also, you may require a software upgrade.

I have a 9560 and when I plug my ipod touch into the usb port the system will go to the usb screen and the load bar at the bottom will progress about halfway before it just stops and goes back to the radio...

First i recommend you to check with the manufacturer or dealer, the compatibility with your iOS version, second, try backing up your iPod and re-loading some songs, if it works, then the problem is with some song's information...
