Car stereo, 16GB USB Flash Drive, Problem

by JGR12 / December 25, 2008 1:27 PM PST

I have a Pioneer VR3 VRCD400SDU car stereo that has a SD chip slot, a USB slot, and an aux port. I had an old 256 MB flash drive that worked in the stereo before. I just got a Patriot Xporter 16 GB and put about 6GB of non-music files on it and some music. The 3 music files are in the root folder and when i plug the drive in the stereo it loads for a minute or two and then a song starts playing but 2-3 seconds in it skips and continues skipping every couple of seconds. The Flash drive is in Fat32 format. I'm not really sure what to do any help would be appreciated. TY

Will give gear some grief. Go find a few 2GB sticks and try those.

It's one of two things.

1. Pioneer has to issue a fix.
2. The file you put on the stick is incompatible. This is why some testing is needed. That is, put the item that skips onto media that you know works.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
