    USB stick/ Radio MP3 "Sound jumping/lag"


    I have to admit I registered here for advice. Hope that's ok.

    The scenario:
    My 1 year old 8GB Corsair Flash Voyager usb pen has music on it. It plays fine on the car radio.

    I then added new music, since I was getting tired of listening to the old stuff. I still kept the old music, thought.

    I go to my car and attempt to listen. The old music still works great. The new music "jumps" and "lags" a lot, making it sound horrible. It's a "spastic"-like sound jumping back and forth.

    I have now tried formatting the usb pen: FAT32 Allocation: standard (have tried "high" also) but no luck - now ALL my music jumps, even the old stuff.

    I normally had the music arranged like this (example): H:\music\Greenday
    I tried rearranging it like this: H:\Greenday (so that all music folders are directly at the root)
    This did not help either.

    I would be very happy for any help you may be able to provide. Please do ask if you need further information!

    Thank you very much in advance. Peace.

    I found out the USB pen is the problem. It was probably damaged by the humidity of my car.

    Will buy a new one which will be attached through a extension cord so that the usb pen can be insulated with a plastic bag and a rubber band.

    To avoid any possible fragmenting and file structure issues copy everything to your freshly formatted USB stick at one time. Try to use microsoft PowerToy called SyncToy available from microsofts website. I create a floder that will be my entire USB drive and copy all the files I want, then sync this folder to the USB drive with sync toy. It solved all my music playback issues.
