If that doesn't work, I'll probably sort out a way to permanently connect a 128GB SSD with a USB adapter that's soldered to the pins or perhaps by wiring in a USB hub into the console and have the hub permanently attached to the exposed UVO USB port. We'll see how it goes.
I wish Hyundai/Kia had blown off Windows and just used Android. They've roped us in to a dead end.
i'm using a 16GB stub and it's snugged on there, no chance of it wiggling loose so don't think it's a contact issue. maybe the drive is too large and too slow for the head unit to handle.
i'm also having this problem with my 160GB ipod classic, the unit keeps cutting off and switching sources when using the head unit controlled cable - i had to use the aux/usb combo cable to sustain a solid connection, which is only controllable via the ipod.
KIA, give us at least an 8GB internal storage and we'll be happy, it's 2013! the 700MB is NOT much!
