Hi

Wasnt sure whether to put this in general hardware or here, but its specific to Idrive so I'll try here!

New car is being delivered on tuesday (F20 1 series) and i'm looking for a 64gig USB stick to store music on. Does anyone know:

1) Whether a 64gb stick will work? (I believe it has to be formatted as FAT32)

2) Whether I need the fastest stick I can find so it doesn't take ages to index

3) Whether I'd see any speed benefit of a USB 3.0 stick (even though its a USB 2.0 port I'm assuming)

4) Could you recommend a USB stick that OCUK sell?

Cheers:)

I don't use it in the car, but my fastest USB2 stick is... my 64GB USB3 stick :p. Obviously not as fast as when it's in a USB3 port, but faster than I ever had a USB2 stick go.
