Anyone having issues with playing USB Music with a thumb drive in the same port that is used for Apple Car Play?
It was working for the first 2 months and then suddenly stopped.

The USB port I am referring to is the one marked "A" and needed for Apple Car Play as the EX model is NOT wireless. Yes, for phone calls and streaming music from the Iphone, the IPhone does not have to be plugged into the middle USB port.
As for the "USB Music" all files are and have been in the MP3 format and were working for 2 months and then stopped, as the screenshot also shows the icon is grayed out.
KIA tells me that they have never heard of USB Music being used; as it was not only used for the Optima but that 2018 model also stored the music in its own radio storage.

I just had the entire unit replaced. They kept telling me it was a software issue when the USB Music did not work in the center port, nor did the Navigation update USB which they sent me for free. It was a hardware issue. It is not an easy chore since they have to diagnose the issue on their own terms at the dealership and then they call it into to KIA. Time consuming but after they replaced the entire system, everything works.
