Default Problem playing mp3's using USB port

I have downloaded mp3's from my PC to a flash drive. I connect the flash drive to the USB port in the center console. After selecting aux device, the flash drive is detected, and all the folders and tracks are found/listed. I select and play a song. The song plays fine until about 30 seconds from the end and then it it just stops playing. The next song starts and does the same thing. I've tried 2 different flash drives and get the same result. The mp3's play fine on my PC. What's wrong? Why is the last 30 seconds (+/-) getting cut off of each song?

Default Narrowing the problem down

I've figured out that it has something to do with the mp3 file tags. I've run a tag validator on the problem files; it found numerous errors. I've repaired the tags but now the repaired files aren't being detected/read by the stereo software.

More to follow . . .

Default Problem solved

It was the mp3 tags - they were corrupted. The repaired files are there but they were renamed. When selected, they play fine now.
