I did but it doesnt seem to work. I think there is a problem with the file itself possibly. I will just reformat it into FAT32 while I'm at it, thanks for the help again! Its just youtube music anyway, it will be much quicker just to reformat this thing every few days lol

Yep, and FAT32 should give you less trouble, but do make sure the removable storage device is properly unmounted before pulling it from the USB port. Especially important if having just written data to it

Note that unmounting can take quite a long time if you've just written a lot of data to the device. Your kernel's buffers can be holding a lot of data (gigabytes) that need to be flushed out to that slow USB flash drive before the unmount can complete, and some drives don't have a flashing light to tell you that the operation is still ongoing.
