    Most cars will only recognize drives formatted in a FAT type format and only play standard .mp3 files.   If you put in anything different you will get nothing.

    A couple of possibilities.

    o  Your car may not recognize the format.  NTFS?  FAT32?  FAT16?  Does your car's manual say which formats it recognizes?

    o Your car may not recognize the filenames as being something it should be doing something with.  8.3?  The right extensions?

    o Your car may not recognize the media type.  Mine, for example, won't play WAV files.
