or of course you could just format the USB drive as NTFS

I've never seen a car stereo that could read NTFS?

My Sony MEX-BT3600U reads NTFS drives with no issues. It was only when I used a FAT32 one that I got any issues with playback order.

Interesting. The manual talks about Mass Storage Device rather than FAT32/NTFS so it's possible it doesn't use the file system on your headunit? But car stereos are still maybe 5 years behind even the cheapest of MP3 players in what they can do which I find really disappointing. Mine doesn't even keep settings if I disconnect the battery.

That will be your continuous feed, check the wiring manual for your car/stereo (will be the 12V usually red or orange from the car side) if you are not comfortable fiddling with the wiring slip into a sound shop they will fix it for around £15 (GBP)

EDIT: Sorry just read that  it is early... I thought you meant when you turn off the car
