    I've got all my music on an SD card but when I try to play it in my Challenger Hellcat it says "Insert SD card". Not sure what's going on but the card works in my laptop and desktop computers.

    It does read larger cards if it is formatted in NTFS and allowed a few minutes when it is first inserted to allow it to be read and a directory created (will display device not connected for a few minutes then the directory will begin to populate). Depending on how many songs/files, it may take up to 15-20 minutes for it to completely populate (first time inserted only unless you reflash the card). It only takes a few seconds to load on subsequent startups. Someone please independently corroborate this, as it is working flawlessly for me using a 128 GB SD card with over 78 GB of music.

    I had no problems in Dante with a 32 GB SD card, but what you described above happened in my husband's new RAM he just purchased.

    I was originally using a 32 GB card, and it did recognize, read, and load the card much more quickly when it is FIRST inserted. But after the 128 card was read/inserted the first time to create the directory, it is as fast as the 32 when starting up, changing songs, etc. The key to using the larger cards formatted in NTFS is to be patient when you first put it in as it seems like it is not being recognized for several minutes.

    Is there anywhere to purchase an SD card that's pre-loaded with music?

    Do these considerations also apply to USB? I tried a 64GB USB thumb drive with about 30GB music last night and no response - display just said to connect device. I never let it sit more than a few minutes though - thinking it wasn't seated properly I kept removing and re-inserting. Thought the USB port was dead.

    Regards,
    Rich
