Customer Question
I have an RX-D55...

I have an RX-D55 Portable Stereo CD System. When I plug in a SanDisk 8GB USB Flash Drive it reads NO PLAY. All filies have a .mp3 extension. What's up?

Technician's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

This is the first time I'm using the MP3 port.

Technician's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

That's all.

Initially, let's try check and review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • try a smaller sized USB drive, 2GB;
  • • ensure flashdrive is fomratted FAT 12, 16 32;
  • • try a USB drive that has a LED light indicator if plugged in and blinks when accessed;
  • • this is to test if the RX-D55 is able to supply +5VDC to the flashdrive.
