Try a better quality memory stick for starters Thumbs Up

It will when others won't,
It goes where others don't.

ISTR you have to store them on the usb within a folder rather than as individual tracks Smile

From a previous discussion - https://www.disco3.co.uk/forum/usb-compatibility-176384.html

"If it helps, my stick is FAT32, and in the root directory I have two folders.

One is the stuff that came with the stick (SanDisk secure tools and other unwanted bits) and the other is Music.

In Music I then have other folders (39 as it happens) which are one for each artist.

In each artist's folder I then have a folder for each album, and those contain the mp3 files.

Nothing fancy about them, they are just as Windows 7 Media Player rips them, set to highest quality.

Looking through, some are WMA files, and they play fine as well.

Folder and file names include long file names including spaces, as is normal these days. No 8.3 restriction.
"

Hope this helps

Cheers
