Default New 2013 USB Port

I tried to play music from a USB flashdrive and got intermittant music followed by a message "check device".

Has anyone experienced this?

Yeah, but with a computer and not a car.

I just tried it out in mine and it worked fine. I believe the manual states only 8GB - 16GB flash drives are compatible. I just tried out an 8GB one formatted in FAT32 and worked just fine.

Mine is a 32 GB, but I think it is a 2.0 high speed....not likely compatible.

According to the manual, it's not. You can surely find a cheap compatible one on Amazon though. Could have sworn I read about a size limitation of the drive itself somewhere in the manual but now I can't locate it.

Mass storage class USB memory can be connected. USB storage devices that can be played back are accompanied by the following restrictions.
. Maximum directory layers: 8 layers (including the ROOT)
. Maximum number of files in a folder: 255
. Maximum number of folders: 512 (type A audio)/255 (type B audio) (including the ROOT)
. Maximum number of files on the device: 130,560 (type A audio)/2,500 (type B audio)

. ATAPI subclass USB cannot be played.
. High Speed USB 2.0 cannot be played.
. A USB memory that is powered by a source other than the USB power supply (for example, an AC power adapter, etc.) cannot be operated.
. A USB memory that is connected to the memory card reader or multi card reader cannot be operated.
. If the USB memory consists of two drives or more, the system will recog- nize only one of the drives after con- necting the USB memory.
. The contents stored on the USB memory may not be played in the same order as they appear on a personal computer.
. A personal computer cannot be used even if it is connected to the system using a USB cable.
. If the USB memory has a security function, the contents stored on the USB memory cannot be played by the system.
. A USB memory and an iPod® cannot be connected to the system at the same time.


EDIT Found more info on the USB in another portion of the manual:

• Supportedaudioformats:

Thanks for the post, I need to pick up a 8GB flash drive for my new Crosstrek, I guess I can buy a normal USB 2.0 8GB flash drive as opposed to a high speed 2.0?

Why would they not use USB 2? Seems very strange to use an antiquated connection, when USB 2 is the standard, and even that is switching over to USB 3.

Cars in general are way behind tech. Most laptops don't have DVD or CD drives anymore but cars still have them.

Remember 8 tracks? It's just always been that way.
