Default MP3 play directly from USB sticks?

According to the Canadian Suzuki website, I can purchase a device that will allow me to play MP3s directly from a USB memory stick.

There is a photo, but no model number and I have been unable to find a reference to this device anywhere else on the web.

Has anyone used this? Does it work well? Will it power a 2.5inch external USB hard drive for 100gb+ of MP3s?

I have attached a photo and description of it from the Suzuki.ca website.

In case anyone in the future needs the info, I discovered some facts.


First, the device does exists and someone uses it with a USB memory stick.

The device does not provide enough power to run a small hard drive.

The big drawback is the file navigation of the Suzuki stereo in that it only provide you with directories as numbers and not names. So, if you have (let's say) 8000 songs sorted by artists and then sorted by album.... it would be meaningless and you'd have to guess that the Rolling Stones was directory 582.... if the stereo would even be capable of reading that much info.

So, I just decided to buy the AUX cable from my Canadian Dealer at $59 CAD (which is less than the US price of $68 USD)
