Help for a newbie please!

Hi guys,
Just bought a Pioneer DEH-1450 head unit for my truck. It has a front USB input which I want to use with my 2G Transcend USB Stick. The radio, and CD player all work perfectly, but when i plug in the USB stick, the sound is very crackly and distorted when I turn up the volume? There is no distortion when it plays quietly. It reads the track, with the text displaying perfectly, and plays the tracks in order, forwards to next track, etc. Can anyone advise me why the sound should be distorted? The tracks are all MP3's and play perfectly on my PC.
Thanks for the help, Rgds, Doogle

If you have another USB stick to try, you could do that first. If it plays clearly, then you know its the first USB you tried. If it does the same thing, than it might be a faulty USB input on the head-unit.
