Music freezes up playing from USB thumb drive

I'm having issue with playing music from the dash USB port on my 14 Limited. It will work sometimes, flawlessly...but sometimes when I start it up, it will play for 3-6 sec and then freeze. I've tried different thumb drives, although these work perfect in my other car. The first time this happened I did a factory reset for the radio and everything was good again. I've also done the radio updates, now running 13.19.0. It has still been doing this now and then, but always seemed to correct itself after turning off the engine, and removing the usb drive for a bit. Now that doesn't even seem to help. Yesterday after doing the restart, I put the usb drive back in and it started to play, but again for only 3 sec. I did get it to work after doing the same thing 5x. Then after work, it did the same freeze-up. I think the factory reset will work again, but I think something is wrong with this radio. Anyone else having issues like this?

Re: Music freezes up playing from USB thumb drive

Hm. I've never had a freeze with my SD in my '14. Maybe worth burning an SD and see if it still happens?

I know that the UConnect doesn't default to the SD on powerup, which might be a difference in our experiences...

Re: Music freezes up playing from USB thumb drive

I had the problem also. I reformatted the SD card and it has been flawless. I bet its the file system.
