Ed P, I'm not even sure how you still have a job with anyone, let alone SanDisk. You are a horrible representative of the company.
I was brought to this thread because I'm having the same problem and the most you have to say is that it's operater error. It's ridiculous!
These are not random cases, it is across the board. I would like to think that you are acting independently and that SanDisk isn't instructing you to deny, deny, deny. But then again, I guess it wouldn't be surprising.
Is there a solution yet?

I have some what same problem playing songs in car usb stereo, but in my case the usb works ok for the very first time but if I change audio input option ( source button) to play radio or cd and then again want to play songs through usb drive it just hangs. The red led light is very bright when playing for the very first time but if I switch to radio or CD then again plays USB the led is very dim and it doesn't play or hangs. IMO its something to do with power managment programe on ULTRA FIT USB which makes this hanging problem.

Officially not work on old car audio, only in modern versions. I recommended proceed to execute the official warranty and use version 2.0 for car audio.

Same Problem.. Really frustrating... I have Pioneer 2015 headunit... all USB 2.0 work fine. I have tried multiple Sandisk USB 3 drives with multiple formatiing options... Never worked..
Sandisk need to do better job in managing the backword compatibility. Although I must say the drives work fine on all other devices like my SOny TV, Home Theatre etc..
The issue to my mind is USB 3.0 copatibility.

Have you checked with the car manufacturer to see if they have an update to their USB 3.0 port? How about the car's audio device's manufacturer for an update?
The USB 3.0 specs weren't as tight as the USB 2.0 specs when they initially came out. Different manufacturers could implement support differently.

After years of avoiding SanDisk like the plague at work and vowing never to return after a spait of rubbish flash drives in various mediums that saw massive amounts of data loss all too frequently, is too saw these Ultra Fit drives and thought, what the hell, they're small and I just want something simple for music in the car, so I bought 3 of them, all IDENTICAL.
Two of them are fine in both factory and aftermarket headunits across a range of manufacturers (3 different generations and models of Volkswagen, a Land Rover, and a Pioneer head unit) but one of them outright refuses to work properly in any of the vehicles. It, like everyone elses, skips all over the shop, changes tracks randomly and its utterly unusable for this purpose.
Clearly SanDisk products aren't fit for any purpose, certainly not professional use - not even something as simple as storing music in a car. I'll go back to avoiding SanDisk like the plague from now on, never to return.

Keep those Ultra Fit 3.0 away from your expensive equipment. I fried two computers by using an Ultra Fit 3.0 on each of them for a week. Never in ten years something like that had happened to me (scientific equipment). I had bought half a dozen for a Wii U, a phone, a Raspberry Pi. Last night I played "Let's smash crappy products with a hammer" with my daughters. I would not want anybody picking them from the trash and fry their wares with them.
