I have my cd player for about 6 months now and have not used the USB nor the Memory card slot for about a month. when i plug in a USB thumb drive with MP3 songs, the display says reading USB and it says that for about 30 - 45 seconds and then the radio starts playing or if the a CD was in before the USB thumb drive was plugged in it would then play the CD.
I have had this problem before with mine. I found that it was one of the tracks I had on my flash drive was corrupt, I don't remember which track it was but if I plugged my drive in it would play until it got to that track and then it would just swith over to radio or cd. I had the same problem with a cd I had burned a bunch of MP3's on. If you erase your flashdrive, reformat it and then try saving songs to it again that should take care of the problem as long as you find out which file has the corruption in it and you don't put it back on your flashdrive.

If the Kenwood is compatible with USB memory adapter, then you will have an USB port on the front side of the player, just aside the CD slot.
If the stereo is MP3 compatible, that does not mean that the unit is compatible with USB devices. If the Kenwood is MP3 but not USB compatible, you can play MP3 files burning them onto a CD, then playing the MP3 CD in the CD player.
I had the same problem for months. I checked the owners manual, checked the fuse box, everything I could think of. Then, today, I did some online research and someone said one of the CD's is probably just jammed or slipped out a bit. The suggestion was to gently slide a credit card over the disk (through the door/slot, which in my case was partially open). I just tried it. The door closed and the message said "initializing". It worked! The CD player is back to normal.
