USB Flash Drive 3.0 Plays music fast forward in my car radio.

I just bought the SanDisk SanDisk Ultra Fit™ USB 3.0 Flash Drive 16GB the other day, and i put music on it through my computer.

I wanted to use it playing music in my car. However when i put the USB in my car radio the music starts playing fast forward... and its with every song i put on there... Is there a way i can fix this?? Or do i need to buy a different USb??

Well, without knowing what kind of stereo system your car has, what kind of car it is, what app you used to create the music, what OS the app was run on, or how often you have created music flash drives for this car with this system I would have to say it's the music.  It's hip hop and has a quick beat to it.

 

Am I close?

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry couldn't resist.  Actually I have no idea.

Re: USB Flash Drive 3.0 Plays music fast forward in my car radio.

I Have exactly the same problem.   It plays the music as if its skipping through it on my car stereo and even if I copy it to the storage in the car stereo, its still skipping through the music.  Now before anyone jumps down my throat and says its the car stereo, its definately not. 

 

It happens on ANY device I use the drive on .    If I copy music to it, when I try to play back from it on my laptop, it plays exactly as it does in my car.  If I plug it into my desktop it does the same.  So its a drive problem NOT a car problem.  Can anyone at Sandisk help, because this was sold to me as being compatible to play MP3s on  with my car and its not even compatible to do so with my PC.  (Or my wife's Macbook).  

 

Thanks for any info or advice.

Re: USB Flash Drive 3.0 Plays music fast forward in my car radio.

there's  others  with  the  same  issue … on  amazon  as  well  as  here  on  sandisk (http://forums.sandisk.com/t5/all-sandisk-usb-flash-drives/ultra-fit-32gig-usb-doesnt-play-in-car/td-... via  amazon.com,  sandisk  was  aware  of  the  issue  late  last  year … and  was,  purportedly,  working  to  resolve  the  issue.

 

imagine  you  might  contact  sandisk  support  at  1-866-sandisk … or  submit  a  support  request  at  www.sandisk.com/support.  either  way … misleading  information  affects  us  all.

"even if I copy it to the storage in the car stereo, its still skipping through the music."

This suggests (rather strongly) then that your skipping issue is a problem with the audio files themselves, not the drive.

What is the source of the files? Downloaded? From where? Bit-Rate & format? Ripped from your own CD's? With what program? Is the software set to create/write ID3 tags? Do the files play OK on a computer?

Before taking the easy way out and blaming the device that is merely the storage medium (a high-tech bucket, if you will), you might consider spending some time and effort making sure what you put in this bucket is potable.

Download interference could cause file corruption, original files could be corrupted.  it just adds another variable to the problem.

Re: USB Flash Drive 3.0 Plays music fast forward in my car radio.

The audio files play perfectly when I play them from source i.e.  from the folder on my PC.   As soon as they are copied to the thumb drive they play fast forward (skipping) on any device I plug the thumb drive into.  If I transfer them to another thumb drive that ISNT a sandisk they play perfectly.  The problem is with the thumb drive NOT the files NOT the PC.
