Answer
Re: format

The format should be one that is 'understood' by your player. And that should be mentioned in the user manual. If not, choose FAT32 and try it with one track.

Answer
I'd pull back on that size drive.

64GB USB sticks were pretty rare in 2012 (when the car player was designed) so I'd start with smaller drives to see what is supported if the product manual can't be found.

I found the answer

I found the following program that can reformat large pen drives (64 gigs and above): guiformat.exe or the command line equivalent fat32format.exe. I used the guiformat.exe and it worked beautifully.
