Is the USB drive you purchased powered through the same USB port? According to the link, it has a Y cable USB which means it needs two USB ports, one for power other for data. If this is the case, then it will not work.

I agree with that, it sound like its not getting enough power from the Fortes USB port, also make sure that it it formatted FAT32. I have never had any issues with my 16GB USB stick.

Format problem!

I'm pretty sure, that the problem, it's not power related, all USB Disks can use 2 USB or 1 (With 2 plugged at the same time, u'll get better performance).
It seems that the problem, it's that you can't put nothing formatted different from FAT32 on the Forte Audio unit, another problem is that fat32, has a 32gb limitation (I' m sure yours it's formatted with NTFS)
But there is a program that can do the magic and format it without the 32gb limitation (I also have a 2,5" usb disk in my forte, with full 120gb of music)
I'll live you the link, it's pretty easy to use, just remember that formatting will erase all of your Files (Make a back-up First).
I'm Sorry for my english but i'm from Argentina.

Fat32 has a 2TB limitation with maximum file size 4GB.
Obviously an MP3 will not be 4GB (god help you if it is).
Format the Drive Fat32. Its simple to do and most OS will let you do it.
Try that, but if you can't hear the drive spin up; that points to there not being enough power.

I guess he is working on Windows Vista, or Windows Seven, by the way, in all Windows systems.
With the utility included in Windows to Format a drive, there's a 32gb limitation (It's a windows Problem, no the file system)
See here:
Convert a hard disk or partition to FAT32 format
