I recently installed an Alpine IDA-X001 into my '00 Ford Mustang GT with the Mach 460 audio system.

I ran a female to male USB cable from the back of the Alpine head unit to a USB drive. When I try to read the USB drive, the headunit gives "device check" or some other message which basically states there is no USB drive attached.

How can I fix this issue?

It is a 4gb drive and I believe FAT32.

I tried a different USB drive which is also FAT32 and an 8gb and it works with the alpine. Strange.
