Hello hillstock

There are many possible reasons for this limitation. The most frequent mistake is uploading files that aren't the correct readable format for the stereo. There is a easy way to check this.

Plug in your flash drive into your computer and search the drive for "*.mp3". This is assuming you are trying to play mp3 files. If the results show 93 tracks , this is your problem. You will need to convert the other music to mp3 format before it can be used.

If you supply me with your stereo's make and model and the most prominent music formats on your computer , I will be able to tell you which formats the device supports and make a better recommendation for a mp3 converter.

For a free mp3 converter , search the web or use this one (Click HERE)

Let me know the details and I will get back to you.

Kind Regards
Stephan Reichert

Music has become more mobile than ever before, as numerous devices can store and play music on-the-go. Companies have developed car audio decks that incorporate USB ports in the faceplate. This allows flash drives to be plugged into the deck, and music on the drive to be played. Flash drive format issues are minimal, considering nearly all flash drives are formatted in the FAT32 file system by default. FAT32 is readable by any operating system, or stereo deck with a USB por

Determine if the stereo deck in the vehicle is capable of playing music off a USB flash drive. Read the stereo deck user's manual, or inspect the deck faceplate for a USB port. Plug a USB flash drive into an available USB port on a computer. Check the drive to make sure there is enough available space for music files. Using Windows, double-click the desktop icon labeled "My Computer." Right-click the flash drive icon, and select "Properties." Capacity will be shown. Using Mac, click the flash drive icon once it appears on the desktop. Click "File" in the top menu bar, then click "Get Info." A dialog box appears, and capacity is listed. Drag and drop any desired music files onto the flash drive. Be sure the files are in .mp3 format. Although some stereo decks are capable of playing other music types, the .mp3 extension is universal and all decks will play it. Spend a short amount of time organizing the files into folders. Organize by genre, artist, or create mixed playlists. Selecting music while driving will become much less distracting. Close the drive window, and safely eject the flash drive from the computer. Plug the flash drive into the stereo deck of the vehicle. Select the USB port as the music source, via the stereo deck. Read the manufacturer's user manual if unsure of how to change the source. Adjust the volume, listen, and enjoy. Hope this helps.

Usb problems on Jensen vm9215bt unit


Too many subdirectories is most likely the problem.

The stereo may have limitations like 8.3 standard. That means a file can only be 8 characters long with a 3 character extension. Or 256 for folders, including paths. This is old school naming restrictions.

Just bought a spl sid-3201 car sterio. I loaded an 8gb flash drive with about 700 songs. I can only play something like 191 songs when I connect it to my usb port...help please


Hi, the 8gb flash drive with about 700 songs is too much for the spl sid-3201 car stereo to scan through, it plays the 191 songs which is its capacity. It's like you are over working the stereo which might start to malfunction if care is not taken..

Take care

I have usb conection in my car stereio.and it wont read the sandisk fuze


The USB connection on your car's stereo is for listening to songs copied onto a USB flash drive.
The USB drive should be formatted in FAt or FAT32 and its size may also be limited to only 1GB although newer models are capable of reading higher capacity drives.
It will not read music from your Fuze as it is not of a correct format.

Sansa Fuze wont work with home stereo


The Sansa doesn't play music through the USB port. You can connect the Sansa to your stereo via the Sansa's headphone jack.

USB message "No Music Data"


First you need to make sure you have the right formats saved onto the flash drive. The "mp3" format is the most common. Second, once you put the flash drive into the head unit, it should auto detect, if not then you need to put it on USB. Try that and get back to me.
