Music On A Flash/Thumb Drive USB Connected

Recommended Posts

My 2012 Sierra with a flash drive for music is  not user friendly IMO.

Finding a song you would like to hear is time consuming.

It does tell you the song info, artist, title if you put it in with Windows Media Player.


I took my thumb drive out of my truck and put in our new Honda CR V.

The audio info screen lists every song on the flash drive.

You can scroll through the list and play a song you want easily.


Do these newer trucks have this?

My 2020 1500 has no problem with getting to artist/album/song but it doesn't index all the folders in the drive.  Anyone know a way to manually index so that it picks up everything?

Do you move the folder containing your music over to your thumb drive?

Or do you open the folder containg your rmusic and move each song file over to your thumb drive? This is how I transfer song files from WMA to a thumb drive.

OK, I'll chime in here! Our '20 got here yesterday. I've formatted the USB thumbdrive NTFS as stated by GM. Now, how do I load it? Song by song, album, by artist ????????? Can the hardware find the songs if they are in sub folders???
