Yeah I'll keep going
But at least I have something working now: as mentioned above I've got a 64GB version of the same USB stick as you, formatted to FAT32 using the wife's Vista-equipped laptop, and it plays fine in the car. Only problem is it's the wife's USB stick so I'll need to do her a trade...
The ONLY thing I can think of is the USB stick I have working was brand new and I've used it "as is", i.e. as it came formatted from the factory. I usually automatically format any drive I buy before using, but the wife suggested I try new new/unused/unformatted drive and it worked.
What have the rest of you done: formatted the USB drive before use, or just use it as it comes?

This will make sure it does a lengthy full format.
I've tried both quick and "full" formats - didn't make a difference for me.
Thanks for your suggestion - tried it but it says my car software's up to date. Mine's a 2007-build and that link mentions it being for 2010 cars onwards only.
