Glovebox USB For Music SSD Loses Connection After Turning Car Off
Loving the 2021 Model 3. Also loving the sound system and the fact that Tesla lets us play our lossless audio files! Amazing. (Wish we still had AIFF support but I can live with it.)
So I'm not trying to complain too much, but am noticing my 1TB SSD with about 650GB of FLAC audio files will lose connection to the car every time I shut her down. This appears to be isolated to the glovebox USB port. So far when I switched to the center console USB-C port, the drive stays connected when I get back in the car after turning it off.
Again, not trying to complain but it would be awesome to keep the SSD in the glovebox in case of a break-in, not to mention the center console ports are in the front so by keeping the drive in there with a USB-C adapter, it sticks out into the compartment quite a bit, rendering the compartment basically useless for holding any other stuff. Anybody else seeing this issue? Wondering if maybe I need to try a different SSD. (Using an internal SSD with SATA-USB Enclosure) Also, the drive has a 100GB partition for dash cam - not sure if that has anything to do with the issue.
