    Galaxy S III Not compatible with veloster using USB connection?

    I just recently upgraded my i-phone 4 to a galaxy s 3 and it doesn't seem to recognize the device when I plug it into the USB port. Is there anyway around this issue or am I stuck with using aux or blue tooth? Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I have the S3. I use Bluetooth. The software isn't compatible to use it as you would an Ipod/Iphone. (As far as I know). Why don't you get a USB key? That way you can fit more music, depending on the size of your key, and it doesn't use battery power when using bluetooth.
    Although it is a drawback, it still works.
    For the Veloster recognizing the phone as a mass storage device, I am doubtful it would work, but I'm not going to say it's impossible. Only improbable.

    Cool here's why

    The Samsung Galaxy S3 doesn't have a Mass storage mode - it was made to emulate a media device when connected (MTP) or a camera device (PTP).
    more information on the protocol is here Media Transfer Protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    since the veloster is only looking for usb storage or iPod like devices that explains why it is not allowing anything other than blutooth.
