hi all. i know that it's been ascertained that at the moment a platter usb drive will not work in the system, but i'm unclear about whether this is an actual electronic limitation, or a software (somehow..?) limitation. is there any hope/thought that a platter drive (one that runs on usb bus power) might eventually work in the car? i mean why would it not? the usb ports must have standard bus power to charge phones and whatnot, correct? 5VDC i think it is.. what else would be the holdup here...? i'd like to have my whole lib in there, but it's around 225GB now.. VERY expensive thumbdrive. i can downsize to a thumb, but that just requires maintenance, i.e., periodically selecting new music, copying, etc... rather than the simple update of copying the whole lib every now and again... much easier. thanks for the thoughts..
