Moto G 4G - playing music on USB OTG intermittently stops/starts/stutters
A few weeks ago I bought a 128GB usb 3.0 stick with fairly decent read/write speeds. I put ~60GB of music and I regularly use it while driving to listen to music through the car stereo.
Unfortunately, every few minutes (sometimes twice a minute, sometimes not for 10 minutes or so) it'll have a moment where it pauses for about half a second and starts again. It seems as if it's buffering.
I use Poweramp on my phone and an auxiliary cable. I've also tried playing music through the phone speakers while it was read/writing another task to the USB stick, and I noticed the same effect, but more like every 2 seconds.
Any ideas how I can fix this? It's very annoying.
Is there maybe a way I could make it download the ~6-8MB MP3 from the USB stick to the phone's memory before the song starts playing, so there wasn't this latency/stop-start effect when playing content?
