Hi,
I just bought a 2011 Sonata about a month ago and overall I like the car. However I'm having some issues getting the USB and AUX ports to work and I was wondering if anyone had similar issues.
All I want to be able to do is plug in my mp3 player and listen to it while driving. The problem is that when I plug in the USB cable into the Sonata's USB port, sometimes it isn't recognized. What's worse is that while I'm driving, it sometimes resets, switching to radio because it thinks nothing is plugged in. Sometimes it shows a "Reading USB" message and what I'm listening to on the mp3 player (which is brand new) resets.
I also tried the AUX port with one of those double ended headphone jacks and the same thing happens - occasionally it just doesn't recognize that the device is plugged in.
It really shouldn't be this much of a hassle to listen to my mp3 player. Anyone have any suggestions on what to do?

Thanks

What type of MP3 player? I would suspect if you tried an Aux port (Mini jack) and USB port and it behaves the same way that you might have an issue with your MP3 player.

It's a sansa clip. The reason I'm thinking it might be the car's ports is that when the cable stops being recognized, I could still hear sound coming from the mp3 player itself, if I plug in headphones.
Is it possible to try plugging in just a regular USB flash drive, or is it only mp3 players that can be played through the Sonata's usb port?
I'll see if some of my friends have an mp3 player that I can test out. It definitely seems like a problem with the connection - I just wish I knew if it was on Sonata's end or the mp3 player's end.

try using just a usb flash memory stick and drop your mp3 files on that, my ipod works fine, so does my phone (with bluetooth or using the 3.5mm cable) also my 16 gb flash stick works fine as well. I agree with everyone else and think its your player.

I've found the USB approach the most convenient if you're willing to make MP3 Format song copies / eliminates battery drain, re-charging, etc.. I can't recall if the Sonata iPod cable provides Charging to an Apple device.

I think it reads that WMA is usable BUT it was Not Recognized in my Limited w/Nav Pkg Audio.

The manual states you must use a FAT Format and an earlier entry that I thought 4GB was a FAT USB limit was wrong - as other users below have posted higher capacities are fine. It further warns against inserting or removing the USB except in certain situations with USB damage a Possible result. I've added-removed it in every scenario and in my case nothing happened.

I'd be interested in what you find as the best Recording Speed: 192 kbs actually sounded a little muddled and I settled on 160.

Give it a try.

Yes, you can use a normal thumb drive to store your music. There is a cap to the amount of files it will recognize, so keep that in mind. Its more than I would ever need.

Not sure there's a 4 Gb limit on the thumb drives. I have a 16 Gb drive in the USB port full of music and it works just fine.

Sorry for that. I can't find that in the Manual so I must have read it Googling. I'll Edit that part out and this info is great to know.
