Default does USB to car stereo work?

i've just spent $340 on a D3 thinking i'd be able to use it in the car. i can't. i have to buy a different one now, so i need to know before i do. it shouldn't matter what stereo i have, but it's Alpine IVA-W505. i used search for "car usb" and it didn't find anything. will one of you tell me honestly, please? thanks!

Does your stereo have an aux-in jack?

if it does, it's in the back on the inside of the dash meant for navs and cameras. i can live with having to buy a different one, but don't want to get one unless it works for others. i know most ipods will, but no. X7 is my next choice, then J3 if that doesn't work. i appreciate the suggestion, though.

i found small print in the Alpine manual that tells me it only reads up to FAT32. the D3 is NTFS. i think X7 is FAT32, so i'm going to assume it works. it's going to be a couple of months before i can get it, though.
