    Have you ever audited your USB / memory cards for authenticity & legitimate capacity?

    Just get the garage to sort it out, the supposed "experts" & ask for a replacement if it turns out faulty.

    Appears more trouble than its worth currently.

    Iíve got a 64GB USB flash drive in the post, Iíll test that as soon as I receive it. I doubt thereís anything wrong with my head units USB as my iPhone connects to it fine over USB.

    The key thing is that when my iPhone is connected via USB the USB symbol isnít ghosted out but when I connect this Kingston drive the USB symbol is ghosted out.

    One can deduce from that the the iPhone has a connection to the head unit but the Kingston drive does not. Is it the drive or the head unit, Iím sure Iíll find out in a couple of days.

    Itís just a shame it took Amazon three days to despatch as I probably would have had it by now.

    Well somewhat unexpectedly my 64GB USB stick arrived this morning I didn't think they delivered on a Saturday. The good news is it works

    So if you want a cheap 64GB USB stick that definitely works with the Smart Media System I recommend one of these...

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-li...&condition=new

    If you spend over £ 20 you can get free delivery alternatively order one from the marketplace seller MyMemory for £ 7.69 with free delivery.

    Result!

    Yeah hopefully this thread will help anybody else who has the same problem in future. I can't believe how small the drive is, its tiny.

    Transferring files to it takes a while especially if you have several GB of data but you're not going to be doing that all the time, if you were using to constantly to move data around probably better going for a USB 3.0 one.

    Went for a drive this morning and listened to music off my new 64GB USB stick, it worked perfectly. The good thing about using a USB drive is that it saves your phones battery power obviously.

    I know you can connect an iPhone to the USB which charges it at the same time but then you've got unsightly cables running about.

    My iPhone is 128GB but I'm only using 19GB of my 64GB USB stick anyway so still plenty of room, its not like I spend a huge amount of time in my car listening to music anyway.

    I paid £ 45 extra for the 128GB iPhone XR over the 64GB version so in hindsight maybe I didn't need to but no regrets.

    Here's a size comparison between a USB Wireless stick, a Kingston DataTraveller G4 8GB USB drive and my new Integral 64GB USB 2.0 drive...

    Just a quick question, I wish to leave my USB stick plugged in all the time. I presume when the ignition is off and the doors locked there is no power being consumed by the plugged in USB device.

    Does anyone here leave there's plugged in 24/7?

    You need a small stick.

    Iíve just got this Sandisk 128GB

    (The 64GB one at top is equivalent in size to your new Integral, the one at the bottom is my new Sandisk 128GB - £18 delivered)
