i have a avh-p5000dvd (usb capable) and i recently purchased a 200 gig ext. hard drive... just reformated it to 32 and it still wont read... is it capable and if so what am i doing wrong?

Try partitioning a smaller drive in it and leaving the rest of the space unallocated. It should read FAT 32 just fine, Im not sure why youd want to try and navigate 200GB of music on a HU though, having 8GB is a chore without an iPod
