I bought a 128GB USB 3.1 thumb drive to hold all my music. I plugged the USB in my 2015 MDX and the upper screen said "Unsupported". I couldn't find any details on what types of USB drives are supported. Anyone know what hardware is actually supported?

You have to formatted the size to 64GB, the system can't read 128GB.

I would also make sure the drive is re-formatted to FAT32. Some newer flashdrives have newer/different formatting and the MDX can't read it. Any drive with added security and encryption may not work with the USB for our vehicles. You might have to dumb the drive down for our vehicle to read it.

Just to follow up in case others are interested. The key here is to use FAT32 formatting. Windows won't reformat anything bigger than 32GB to FAT32, so I downloaded fat32format to reformat. Now my 64GB USB drive works great!
