Listening to music using USB..but too slow!


I have an 2008 e92 335i and it has USB port and AUX port in armrest.
I'm using an USB to listen to music and I found that it is really slow
when navigating folders/list/ etc.

1. Is every USB slow when navigating?
2. If it depends on USB, what brand would you recommend?

It's not brand specific, there are different grades of memory in those USB flash drives. The better ones will publish thier specifications. Check the manufacturer's website when in doubt.

Also, the more files you have the longer it takes to initialize.

I have a 16GB stick (Patriot Xporter XT) and navigating is very quick, it's rated at 30MB/s. The whole stick gets indexed in ~1 min.
The stick you are using is probably not fast enough. Upgrade to the fastest stick you can find, well worth it.
