USB potential issue

So basically got an HP USB stick (16G formatted to FAT32, then loaded quite a few mp3's on it. (Works just fine on the laptop)

When i plug it into Elantra, all i see is "reading USB" but this message does not go away, and nothing happens.

It seems as if hte USB key is not recognized by the elantra.

Since it works fine on the laptop, i know for a fact that USB key is actually functional.

So my question is, are there are any specific makes/sizes of USB stick that the Elantra known to read, or is it that i have an issue with the elantra usb port?

Some people have reported various brands of usb drives not working when others work just fine. Try a different one, they are cheap and useful to have anyway. I haven't run across any issues with any of mine yet, maybe I'm lucky.

How many MP3s? How many GBs worth?

I'm having the same issue. Actually my current 16gb USB stick with only about 20 songs in it (about 100mb) has been having a 50/50% chance of working... I'll plug it in and it will either start working right away or stay "reading usb" forever.
I bought another 8gb USB stick and it doesn't work at all...

Can anyone post their USB stick that works well with their Elantra??????????

How many MP3s? How many GBs worth?

For testing purposes only i loaded 12 mp3s worth 43MB in totalon a 16GB hp drive which functions as expected on laptop or desktop, but once plugged into The elantra all it says is "reading USB", and then after about 3 minutes or so shows "Reading Error"

Not sure why as it works just fine anywhere else...any ideas?

I am leaning towards some sort of configuration with the HP stick, as i tried Transcend usb stick 4GB and it works fine on laptop AND on the Elantra....so going to be looking some more into the configuration of the HP v165w 16GB and see what i come up with

Many flash drives have software on them that puts files in a "container". On a PC you can still see the files, but they wouldn't show up in your car. The software usually runs transparently so sometimes it's hard to tell that you are using it. If you get two drive letters when you put your flash drive in your computer, you probably have this type of software running.

I'm using a Sandisk Cruzer Fit. A 16GB was $15 with shipping on eBay. It is the smallest flash drive I've ever seen and works great in the Elantra GLS stereo. It looks good because it barely sticks out of the usb port. I have about 1500 songs on it right now and it works fine.

I have a "mp3" folder, and then each album in it's own folder inside the mp3 folder. Maybe the folder structure has some effect? I know there is a low limit of how many folders/files you can have in the root directory.

Edit:
After I posted I noticed that you had listed the model number of your HP flash drive so I googled it. I don't think there's any software included with it so that's probably not your problem. There are tons of bad reviews though. I bet you just have a flaky flash drive and the Elantra has a compatibility problem with it. Flash drives are so cheap, I would just save the hassle and buy another brand.
