USB sticks known to work with '12 Accent?

I've found a bunch of threads about playing MP3s from USB sticks here, but not specifically for '12 Accents. I understand that the drive must be formatted Fat 16 or 32, and DRM files won't play. Also I've seen on other forums that SanDisk 32 drives work.

I have a SanDisk 32 USB stick formatted to Fat 32, and I get read error when connecting to my Accent. Also, another generic brand, 2gb stick gets the read error.

Anyone have success playing MP3s from USB stick with 2012ish Accent?

I have an old Lexar 8 Gig USB stick. Works great. I say 'old' because I bought it seven years ago when I got my 2012 Accent new. It has worked well ever since.

It's formatted FAT 32 and is USB 1.0 (They never had faster speeds back then).

FWIW, according to the 2012 owner's manual, the radio will only play .MP3 and .WMA files.

Thanks for the reply...I'll try to find a Lexar. The SanDisk 16gb stick is USB 1.0, I just checked, FAT 32, wonder why it's not working...

2012 Accent SE here. All my sticks work fine, mostly SanDisk, but others as well. FYI, good luck.

Ah, finally figured it out. Found a bunch of other threads that mentioned file format, DRM, FAT 32, but otherwise said it's trial and error with different sticks.

What worked for me, with drives I was getting read errors with: when formatting, "scheme" must be "master boot record." With Disk Utility on Mac, the default scheme is "GUID Partition Map," for FAT 32, which didn't work. Re-formatting with master boot record selected did the trick.

Playing MP3s from a USB stick is OK but I find using the Accent's Bluetooth and my Android mobile phone to be a much better system, plus can make and take phone calls. Also can have multiple playlists on the phone.

Glad you got it going... Although, all the USB sticks I've ever bought came formatted. I've never had to do anything special to get them recognized.

For some reason, I like to store music on a USB drive rather than on the phone. I do use my phone's Bluetooth to stream content from the internet, but I've never bothered to load any music on it.

Mine came formatted too, but I had re-formatted them for Mac. Also, I wonder if some of the other people who were getting read errors had drives that were pre-formatted with GUID rather than master boot record...
