Formatting USB hard and flash drives for use with the Volkswagen Media Device Interface (MDI)

The Volkswagen Media Device Interface (MDI) requires external hard or flash drives to have a FAT16 filesystem for under 2GB sized media or a FAT32 filesystem for over 2GB media. See Volkswagen Media Device Interface (MDI) Specifications for the details.

Windows won’t allow you to create a FAT32 filesystem over 32GB but it can be performed using a tool like fat32format (they have a GUI and command line version) which will allow to format a drive up to 2TB.
