Hi we need to know what USB is compatible with mixtrax. Bought a new AVH-x5800bhs but mixtrax not showing on app just on settings. Plugged 3 different usb thumb drives with formatted mixtrax music but it won't recognise any usb.

Mixtrax is compatible with any USB thumb drive, as long as it is formatted correctly (FAT16 or FAT32) - it cannot detect NTFS formatted USB devices.

It can also only detect certain file formats - see http://mixtraxnet.com/support/manual/en/section14_3_en.html
