    USB Hard Drive

    I am purchasing this head unit this week and I was wondering how hard drives work with the head unit. Would the music just play random songs or could you some how create play lists? Do you think its a good idea to get a hard drive or should I just stick with USB Flash Drives. I would like to get a external hard drive because you can hold so much more music in them and that would save me more money in the long run.

    Most headunits that have a USB port will not interface with a USB hard drive.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    You may have to format the hard drive to fat32 to work. Or it may not work at all with a hard drive.

    Read the JVC specs as well as reviews. That headunit might only be able to accept usb mass storage devices up to a specific size. I was interested in a similar JVC unit until I reallized the size limit was no where near the 80gb that I wanted to hook up to it.
