I have done a lot of playing with the USB audio and to start check what version of firmware is in your system.
Mine is something like 56.00.100 but if yours is much lower (33 etc) it may need upgrading as I read lots of posts re not remembering lastly point.
I have tried flash drive and iPods and both seem to work ok however how it appears to work is ....
For a flash drive it reads all tracks etc and builds up an jinxed to the music etc using an onboard music database. This can take a while if the flash drive is large. Once its built you can use the menus to find tracks by artist etc etc.
Once you stop car the in memory DB of music is gone and it builds it again next time.
It also seems to prefer the format of directories with Artist/Album and playlists in the root directory. Playlists must be in "m3uext" format.
With an iPd its much faster and the deck has to do less work, however it will hold in memory a full list of data about the music.
In both cases I have never had it forget the last play point.
More info here about tools etc I used.
Look at post 25 on this page
I updated the Infotainment System to version 56.230 and did the "remove the Disclaimer on boot" mod.
Easy to do, more to explore.
