Hello, I have a Citroen C3. I just bought it. Its a 2017 plate.

I have tried using an old usb stick 1.0 version (64gb) and it didnt work when trying to play music using it. (I have the correct format of music).

SO, I bought a new USB Stick 3.0 (128bg) version and it doesnt work either.

Does anyone else use a USB Stick and gets it to work ok?

As in, does it have to be a certain version and does it have a capacity of gb that it recognises, as in would it recognise a smaller 32gb stick rather than a 128gb etc?

Thanks

Hi, I have just bought a 2019 C3 and I can play music from USB stick no problem.

The usb stick I use is a Kingston 8GB.

I just plug it in, select USB as source and press play.

Maybe try a smaller stick just in case there is some size limitation.

regards

I should have mentioned that this Kingston memory stick is USB 2

Hi, thanks for the reply. I got it to work. It was indeed the version of the USB stick. I bought myself a 2.0 version and it worked fine :-)
