Well my Cruzer Fit 8GB SUX. Have problems with car stereo too
If Cruzer Fit is inserted in car stereo before it is turned on, then i can forget about it beeing recognized. So i need to power on car stereo and wait few sec and only then i can insert Cruzer Fit to be properly recognized.
Annoying as hell !!!
With Cruzer Fit there is no more resume option for playback so i need to go and search folder/song that i listen last. Hate it!
Believe the problem is in usb controller. It is clearly not responding properly at the initialization time.
Before i had Patriot X-PORTER MINI 8Gb and it work great. Too bad i lost it.
Today i tested another no name usb stick with no enclousure and it work great too. Just its old 2GB and big stick It contain Chipsbank CBM2091 controller(48pin) and it is sure better then what Cruzer Fit uses.
Bottom line, Cruzer Fit is a bad choice for car stereo usage. Design is great, but compatibility is worse then 5 year old usb sticks.
Wish i could return this crapy usb stick and get me that old Patriot mini stick, that around here still cost 50% more then useless Cruzer Fit
Sandisk is a name ill ignore for the rest of my life !
