Wink USB port not recognizing flash drive.

I successfully loaded a group of MP3 files in my HDD on my BMW I3. After doing so and enjoying the music (with the flash drive removed), I decided to reorganize my music into folders (playlists), added more MP3's, etc. I did so on my MacBook Pro using the same flash drive. On the I3, I deleted the previous music folders and, under options, cleared the free memory. After turning off the I3 and charging overnight, I reinserted the same flash drive and the USB port does not see the drive. I tried various combinations of reinsertions and at one point copied the entire drive and my 2 Profiles to a second flash drive and tried that. Both flash drives work fine with both a Mac OS computer as well as a Windows 8.1 computer. Is there something I must reset in the control module in order to have it acknowledge the USB connection? If so, how? I am unable to export my Profiles any longer as well, as the I3 does not see the flash drive after insertion. Help please?

Check the file names on the folders do not have spaces or special characters. I can make files on my Mac that a PC will not read
