    I have 2 SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 32GB flash drives.
    One is set up for the Dash Cam - works fine.
    Second for music - FAT32, folders for albums.
    • the music drive is recognized by my M3 - shows all albums, all songs.
    • when I select a song receive a Loading Error
    • I've rebooted the screen & shut down and restarted the M3
    • Removed the Dash Cam drive and only had the music drive plugged in
    • Am on version 2018.48.12.1 - problem started with version 9
    Does anyone else have this problem?
    Fixes?

    File formats of the music? .mp3 and .flac should work fine. I think .m4p, Apple's default format, does not work, and will cause loading errors. Make sure you don't try to play any incompatible files.

    Yes, I would suspect it's a format issue. Stick to mp3 and flac and you should be good.

    Thank you - I wasn't thinking of file format since the files played fine when first played. It seems that WMA files used to play, but now won't load. Changed to a different format, now they all play :)
