The USB mp3 playback on my 86 head unit has playback issues.  Is this a known issue for this head unit?
 
By issues, I mean that it stutters at certain points and skips a bit when playing back.  Like it's a buffering issue.  It's not constant.  It doesn't seem to be related to bumps in the road.  It may only happen a few times every 10 mins of play.  I've tried different USB sticks and different tracks.  I've tried cleaning the USB socket. Nothing seems to resolve the issue.  I don't get the problem using playback from other devices, e.g. Bluetooth to phone.
 
So I am suspecting an issue with the handling of mp3 files on the head unit itself.  Perhaps the buffer isn't big enough?
 
Any ideas?  Thoughts?  Suggestions?  Similar issues?
 
Thanks,
 
Glenn

Interestingly, I converted the mp3's to AAC MPEG 4 Audio and they all play fine now.  Makes me wonder if it's just mine and MP3's or if others have the same issue.
