USB stick type

Anyone had any luck using USB sticks to store their movies / music on?

The owners manual just says they must be formatted as FAT16 or FAT32 and that music must be MP4/WMV or AAC and movies as DIVX

I've tried all of the above and the car entertainment system won't recognise anything. - doesn't even acknowledge the USB stick is in there....Just keeps asking me to "please connect device."

Tried the USB port in the centre console and the USB in the rear. No joy.

Tried 3 different USB memory sticks - all result in the same problem.

Any thoughts or experiences appreciated.

okay...so the car system doesn't like Sandisk USBs
Tried with a Toshiba USB and all good..ish.

Next question -With a USB in the front centre console, the front passenger can watch movies from it, but unlike the DVD player, I can't find a way to pipe that feed to the rear screens. So in other words, the rear passengers can only watch whats on a USB stick plugged into the REAR socket and the front passenger can only watch whats on the USB stick plugged into the FRONT socket... So if you have young kids in the back, with the USB plugged in the rear, the front passenger has no way of changing films etc for the kids in the back. (unless they contort themselves leaning over to see the screen - not good in a moving car and use the remote to change film or skip scary parts). Rolling Eyes


am I missing something ? I totally don't get why ALL screens can't be fed from one USB stick and controlled from the front like the DVD player can

Thanks for the info about the sticks. I have just bought another Scandisk. Will try another make.
Not happy if all the screens are not the same though.
Once tried and find it works I will reply back

Well, after spending quite a while with the system and looking at other related forums, eg. evoque, Disco & RRS of vehicles with the same system, it is quite clear...

Nope. you cannot feed the rear screen entertainment with movies from the centre console USB. The rear screens can only take a movie or music USB feed from the USB socket in the back.

Shame.

Oh well, back to old school burning of DVDs and having to carry a wallet full of them around.
