    #8 is the USB connector. Does the truck currently have a USB port?

    That is to retain your current USB port with aftermarket radios. What USB port is in your truck right now? Do you only have an AUX port like I do?

    If you have a USB port you can't use the one at the back of the radio because it's currently in use. You will have to use something like Sgt.Tee posted.

    Check the stick and see if it is Fat format, also reduce your size to 32 GB. Try this and get back to us

    Just read this thread the other day. Seams there is a limitation to the amount of files within a folder on Fat32 systems. See below

    This works best if you just put a different artist or Genre in each folder
