USB Stick and Tunes

I thought I could load up a stick (128 gb) with a bunch of tunes. However, when I play music off the stick, only the first 6 or so will play before it loops back to the beginning. I don't think it is a formatting issue with the stick. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

The stock head unit on my '16 was driving me batty with issues like this.

It's picky on how long you name the file (I can't remember the exact length limit, but you might have to shorten some file names).

It's stupid with some folders. Some I've had to put into the root directory just in order for it to be seen by the system.

If you load 1 single file, it no longer reads in alphabetically order.

I've resorted to formatting the stick, then reloading everything in order for it to be read in alphabetical order.

I ended up upgrading the entire audio system including a head unit without these issues.
