I have a 2014 Town & Country, U-Connect 430 - Satellite / Radio / CD / MP3 player with internal hard disk. Does anyone know what the storage capacity is for this hard disk?

40gb bare. But it's got system files and what-not on it. I forget how much is available. Enough for a ton of music.

Can you plug in a USB stick and play music off it? I have not tried that.

Then I wouldn't bother trying to upgrade the HDD. If you can get music through the USB port in the glovebox, you rarely even have to see it. Get a 512gb stick and have music for days straight.

A couple of sites that might interest you:

Starting at Page 89 in the above referenced Owner's Manual:

Before using the AUX mode, you will need to connect your audio device to the USB port. (See the iPod®/USB/ MP3 section in your vehicle’s Owner’s Manual on the DVD or the iPod® Control section in your User Guide for instructions.) NOTE: The files will not be stored on the internal hard disk drive and cannot be used in the HDD mode. NOTE: It is recommended you use the latest available software for your iPod® and iTunes. See the manufacturer’s website for updates: http:// www.apple.com/support/ipod/. Playing Audio Files From The Audio Device You can play songs directly from the iPod® or external USB device.

With a thirty plus gig drive (can't imagine system files being more than a gig or so) you shouldn't have to worry about music storage. 1GB holds roughly 230 songs (at 128kbps). That's roughly 16 hours of music or 20 albums. So you should have room for around almost 9000 songs. Don't forget Stairway to Heaven!
