Portable Hard Drive use in 2011 GT

Hey guys! Tried searching for this and could find any threads using the sites search function, but sorry if this is redundant. I know that you can plug a hard drive in as long as its formatted to FAT32, and it should work, but Does anyone have a list of which hard drives will and wont work at all? I have this WD 150gb, and it wont find anything on that, but my little thumb drive works like a charm, I don't want to go out and buy another hard drive if its not going to work..... Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

Also, what folder grouping should I put them in in order to search by artist or album in the menu options? As of right now I have a Music folder on the hard drive, inside that is an artist folder, and inside that are album folders, and in side those are the tracks or the disc folders for multiple disc albums.

Any help with this matter is obviously greatly appreciated! Cheers all!

Might be a limit on the size drive sync can read. If you can, may partition not into a few smaller chunks.

I've always used a thumb-drive. It's got more than enough space for the music I frequently listen to. Not sure about the larger portable HDs. The thumb-drives and portable HDs may require different drivers in order to be read properly and that may be the issue. Hope you can figure it out man.

I think I am using an 8GB drive right now. I originally tried using a 64GB jump drive and it would never index all of the songs. I finally cut down the number of songs for the car so they would fit on the smaller drive and have had zero issues since.

Same suggestion here. 8 GB thumb drives work very well. I've gone as large 32 GB with no problem. I tried various mp3 players and a smaller (320 GB) USB powered hard drive and they weren't recognized. I gave up.

Great! I will have to pick up a 32 sometime and give that a shot.
