The SD/USB work exactly the same (once you get them working). In other words the menu and display will operate the same.
As noted, the max size is 8Gig for either.
If you can play a dvd successfully from the unit to the TV with picture and sound the SD/USB "should" work as well (so it is not a connection issue).
The easiest thing to try to see if working is to use an 8 Gig or less SD card in your digital camera, take a few pictures and try in the Genesis. It "should" read the jpg files and display a menu so you can select them and view them.
If this works move into MP3 files.
you can ONLY use the file types listed in the manual. Others will not work.

All the other functions on the radio work fine.
