WHAT!!!! 1TB flash drive for $10.99 Is that a typo error sure was not $110.99 Far as i've seen i cant even get a decent 16G for $10.99. Or is it some no-name brand ??. Good luck and let us know how it works
I found the drive on eBay. As a matter of fact, it's a 2TB drive for $10.99 - No Name. Saw another one on there today for $9.69. Although I sometimes purchase brand name drives, I've also had good success with off-brand drives. If I'm using it for Music, there is little risk involved; as I have the music backed up on a Western Digital computer hard drive.
The flash drive had to be reformatted to FAT 32 from exFAT (which was the default for the 2TB drive), because my JVC stereo is about 11 years old and didn't recognize exFAT format. Other than that the Drive is working well in my car.

You were scammed. Drives can read 1tb when they're 32gb. It's well documented. It just overwrites data.

Bottom line is that I'm happy with the drive, and I only spent $10 for it. Thanks for your input. Even if it's just 32 GB, that's a lot of music for $10. Have a good day. You really have to work on your bedside manners, assuming that you have any. Learn how to communicate with people, without being so rude. Don't bother responding to me, I just put you on my ignore list.

You must have a hard time in the real world. I have some "5000w" amps to sell you.

I just looked on ebay on that 2TB flash drive. Ya not one decent reliable name brand. They were all no name drives and most shipped from China or Hong Kong. Not for me thanks. I have back up too but i need my music to work and not worry about some cheep no name drive failing on me on one of my long drives. I see you said you have back up to a WD drive, WHY a WD drive. Why not some cheep no name drive as you say are good. I saw some on ebay external dives for $10.99. ya that what i thought. Why don't you do a properties check on your home or laptop and show us a screen shot of the listed true TB

Sorry but i would not trust that 2TB drive for $10, just as i would not trust that Boss amp with 5000w for $50. I have spent way to much time over the years remastering my music to high quality sound and over 6,500 songs to a $9.99 2TB no name flash drive. Well good luck. You going to put this nice lady on ignore block too for questioning you too??? or maybe just tell me to
"talk to the hand" Think you need to learn how to communicate with people and learn to take some questioning and negative comments or your not going to last long on here. This is Car Audio Form.

Oh i apologize. Sorry. I have to restate that. You Bobby have done a wonderful job on finding a wonderful flash drive for an incredible price. Such a good child you are. Such good mannered child and smart and even fixes your bed. Bobby, would you like some ice cream and cake for a good job today.

I have heard and seen specs that some of the new more high end priced HU models now have included NTFS format capabilities. But i just don't need a $500 HU just to use a NTFS hard drive. My $160 Pioneer dose just fine. stream videos on tubemate apk
