I have noticed on a couple cars that have a USB input for the car stereo it exhibited the following issue.
I have a SanDisk 128GB USB flash drive. Looking at the file system the flash drive is set to FAT32.
I have 454 albums in mp3 format stored on the flash drive.
So in the flash drive there are 454 folders. One for each album and each folder contains the mp3s of that album.
When I copied these 454 folders onto the flash drive i did it all at once so I selected all 454 folders and clicked copy and then pasted them onto the flash drive using windows explorer.
So that transferred them onto my flash drive.
So then when I plug the usb flash drive into in the USB input on my vehicles stereo.
My stereo reads and plays them fine but I noticed that it only recognizing 96 albums because when I go through the selection on the stereo's screen it only lists 96 albums.
This stereo is the stock stereo that came with the vehicle.
But in my previous car I purchased a JVC after market dvd stereo and that stereo did the same.
When I plugged the usb flash drive it didn't recognize all the albums on the flash drive either.
Am I missing something?
Anyone ever have this issue? Do USB inputs in car stereos have a certain limitation?
I have tried several different usb flash drives but they do the same.
