If you've tried playing FLAC files on a USB stick, have you experienced:

  1. Random Stopping / Restarting of songs

    20.0%
  2. Random Skipping

    10.0%
  3. Complete Failure (stops and will not resume)

    40.0%
  4. Nothing but smooth, blissful playback!

    50.0%

    I have lots of problems playing FLAC from a USB stick, so decided to do a poll to see if I'm just doing something wrong (bad stick/ formatting, etc). Please only answer if you've played FLAC enough to have a good feel for this.

    "Loading error..." is my most popular song.

    @Rockster Don't feel like this is a Model 3 specific issue - "Loading Error" is quite popular in Model S too.

    Does Tesla have a "bug reporting system"? Is there any way to know how much of a priority they put on an issue like this, or do you basically have to 'tweat' Elon?

    There is a very detailed (and long) thread called 'Comprehensive USB Bug List' that goes through everything and seems to apply to all models.

    I have 5000+ FLACs on a 256GB USB stick and they play perfectly all the time. There are issues with re-scanning and when you first start out (not being seen for a few minutes), but once they start they play well (some are 24/192 and they play great as well)

    I've had no problem with USB playing songs in my limited time int he car. I do find it extremely frustrating that upon exiting/re-entering the car that it switches to Bluetooth instead of USB. For that reason, I haven't used USB all that much, refinding/starting where I was every time is annoying.

    Are you talking about playing FLAC, or just music in general? I’m asking specifically about FLaC files

    Either. Most of the music on my USB stick is FLAC, but there are a few mp3 files.
