Re: ULTRA FIT 32GIG USB DOESNT PLAY IN CAR

Hi

 

I have same problem, i buy a sdcz43-032g-g46 ultra fit 32gb and dont wort in my car too. I try with original format, try with FAT32, NTFS, and exFAT and none of them work. put only one song on it without folder and still doesent work, i have and old 16gb sandisk cruizer fit and it work fine with same music on it.

Just for me, I'd check with the provider with your car audio. They will know which flash drive will be compatible. Or if you need to format it in a specific file system.

Re: ULTRA FIT 32GIG USB DOESNT PLAY IN CAR

Hi,

 

Actually I gave up with the SanDisk Ultra Fit.

 

I bought another stick (Transcend JetFlash®710 USB 3.0 32GB) and it works fine in my car with my 2009 JVC unit.

The Transcend stick doesn't work in my wife's Nissan Juke built-in stereo even though it's more recent than my JVC, but I was able to use an older 16GB stick that works there.

 

From what I've read elsewhere in forums and from the car documentation, it's not a matter of incompatible specs or format, it's just luck or no luck with the hardware. Car USB compatibility seems to be a rather tricky matter.

 

Thanks anyways.

Re: ULTRA FIT 32GIG USB DOESNT PLAY IN CAR

i was waiting for them to blame the car etc , so why is it i have about 4 or 5 different sticks most being sandisk and they all work , as i said amazon has others on it with same problem , sort it out sandisk , ford is a popular make so its not to hard to take one out to the staff car park and try . Every time i see these on hotukdeals or amazon etc im gonna post avoid if for car use

You should do that for all car ads also. Smiley Wink

 

 

I'm wondering if this has to do with USB 3.0 specs.  I have read that they are not as nailed down as the USB 2.0 specs.  Thus a USB 3.0 device and a USB 3.0 port could be a bit out of sync in some cases and thus not work together.

Re: ULTRA FIT 32GIG USB DOESNT PLAY IN CAR

I have exactly the same problem and it doesnt just skip through music on my car radio, it skips through music no matter what I plug the stick into - laptop, xbox, macbook, desktop, bluray player.  It skips through music. So by that reckoning its not my devices its a problem with the Pen drive.  I got this primarily to play music in my car.  It cant do that.  I'd like to know why

 

Many thanks.

Based on those efforts dezzie I agree it's something wrong with the USB drive.  A dirty/oxidized contact, a bent contact, which may or may not be fixable.  If fixable great, if not return the drive, either to where you bought it or to SanDisk would be my suggestion.

I'm afraid you are mistaken.  It is Sandisk's fault.  If there drive doesn't play in multiple vendors head units, then it's their problem.  If the 2,0 version works fine, it's their problem.  Because it is "suppoedly" backwards compatible.  Don't blame the user.  Blame the source.

I ordered two from Amazon, and they both performaed the same.  Skipping thruout. Evewn if it is USB 3.0, it is supposed to be backwards compatible. I have a Lexar 64gb USB 3.0 that works fine.

Re: ULTRA FIT 32GIG USB DOESNT PLAY IN CAR

Has anyone found a solution to this problem with Ultra Fit in Car Stereo?

 

Has anyone tried the Sandisk Cruzer Fit 2.0?

 

This is a really frustrating issue.
