Question on the USB ports in my Yukon.. These two ports do not allow a IPOD or other usb device with Music to be recognized. When I plug a device in and go to Audio, touch USB, it says not device found. The port does charge but is not recognized for devices with music on them.
This makes no sense. this should just be another input source you could slect from for audio inputs.

I went to the dealer to have them look and all they said is "well you have to connect via bluetooth". This has to be wroestionsng.

I use apple carplay which uses bluetooth, so this means I can only use one bluetooth device...when I use the USB via bluetooth, then it disables Carplay.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

It is probably set up to read files off a USB flash drive and not to interface with an iPod or other device. I would probably format it to the older FAT32 format because most car entertainment systems are very rudimentary in terms of their capabilities.

The USB-A port will read files off a 32gb or less flash drive. Must be formatted FAT32 - drives larger than 32gb are formatted exFAT and won’t work.

Is it possible that the Apple cords you are using are aftermarket that charging only and are not for data transfer? I know that for cheaper aftermarket USB-micro and USB-C cables, this was a problem, where not all of the pins are utilized to save a few pennies. Use a cord that you can connect to your computer with and access files/upload music and try that cord in your vehicle, to confirm that it functions for data transfer elsewhere.

A simple fix could be to get a Bluetooth adapter that connects to your iPod or USB stick. This way, you can play music wirelessly in your car without messing up CarPlay.

Appreciate the response.. I did try different cables one that work when I connect to the laptop.. Even the manual says you can play music from the USB ports..
