I have a Pioneer DEH-P4000UB in my car. It has a USB port but the Fuze does not seem to be compatible with it. I am informed by Pioneer that any USB device connected, with the exception of that other player, must support a FAT32 file format. I don’t think that the Fuze supports that and that may be the problem. Are there other car stereos that would work with the Fuze? Or is there a way to format the memory in the Fuze to be compatible? Any other suggestions?
Most car stereos only support MSC mode (i.e. normal usb flash drive). The fact that they mention the FAT file system probably means that is the case with your stereo.
The Fuze defaults to MTP mode (proprietary Microsoft format necessary to support DRM). If you don’t need DRM support, you could format the Fuze, switch to MSC mode and reload your files. Then the Pioneer should see the files.
Some newer head units support MTP, but not that many. If the manual mentions support for “plays for sure”, DRM or copy-protected files, then it supports MTP.
