Anyone has similar experience? Not sure why it's happening but I know usb 3.0 should be backwards compatible

Wrong filesystem format.

 

Most things still want external storage to be formatted with FAT32 or exFAT.

Most likely FAT32.

 

Do note the FAT32 File System has a 4GB file size limit. Also partitions can only be created up to 32GB in size.

Don't see what you need? Check the Full List or *PM me, if I haven't made it I'll add it to the list.

*NOTE: I'll only add it to the list if the request is something I know I can do.

exFAT doesnt have the maximum disk size limit, but the device needs to be considerably newer to support it.

I haven't played with exFAT myself. Was this an iteration in-between FAT32 & NTFS?

No.  It came after NTFS.  It exists for low power/complexity devices that need disk IO.  Its also fairly platform agnostic where NTFS support outside of the MS world is pretty crap.

I would like to see Linux be able to work with NTFS partitions a little better. A little more functionality/control. Well, OP can try exFAT first since it's a better option and with any luck the car will support it. If not, FAT32 then.
