Cannot add files to HDD

2011 Limited 5.7, RHR entertainment.

I have added my music to the HDD in the past using the USB from my smartphone. Recently, when I connect my smartphone via USB it does not see it, it can see only CD. Anybody has a clue why that is?

Memory full? Simple question but often overlooked especially in computers

No plenty space, checked that. It should still see the USB.

Some Smartphone's have a setting how they 'appear' on the USB bus. You might check if there is some setting within the phone so that it appears as a mass-storage device. Do you have a thumb drive with music on it that you could try instead, to see if it is recognized?

From my experience:
Phone must look like a disk drive to the radio. When you connect it, the display will ask about charging, pass through, disk drive or something similar.
When using a thumb drive, it wants to see FAT formatting, not NTFS.
Don't copy when driving. My first attempt resulted in recording a lot of skips and jumping around.
Good luck

Just use a thumb drive, as others suggested and plug it into the USB port on the radio face.
