Aftermarket usb connection problems

Hi all,

I have some kind of after market aux and usb cable fitted to my factory head unit. This was done by previous owner. The aux and usb are both on the one cable but it splits into the two different connections towards the end of the cable, i.e 3.5mm aux lead and female usb lead. The aux works fine but the usb charges the phone but doesn't seem to want to read anything off a memory pen. I appreciate without knowing the make of the cable etc it may be hard to help but any ideas on why this would be? Does the music have to be stored or filed on the memory pen a certain way for the headunit to read it?

they have what you are describing on ebay atm, and the usb part is only supposed to charge and not transfer/read data so chances are you have one of those.

Not sure if your allowed to link so just search civic, aux usb
