About my USB. It is so crazy?

Hi! I am experiencing problems with my USB. If I connect my USB in our speaker to listen to songs, it does not read. But if I connect it to the computer, it works properly. How can I solve this?

There can be several reasons for this. Refer to the user manual for your sound system to learn what file-system formats and what files and codecs are supported. Then format the USB device on your computer with the appropriate file system. To do this, press the Windows and "E" keys and right-click the flash-drive letter. Select "Format..." Under "File System" and choose your required file system. Click "Start". After the flash drive has been formatted, place files on it in formats, either uncompressed or encoded with codecs supported by the sound system, that are supported by the sound system. For example, you may read it in the manual that your sound system accepts only a FAT32-formatted flash drive with LAME-encoded 160 Kilobit-per-second (Kbps) mp3 files. Then you will have to place only 128-160 Kbps MP3 files encoded by the LAME codec onto it.

Took the USB to an i-cafe to print, came back defunct?

All of the folders disappeared and were replaced by a funny looking shortcut which I deleted. Properties show the same volume of used space, and files must be there, just hidden. Used the command prompt with attrib plus string of -s etc., command prompt froze. Don't know that it is different, just working on it.
