256GB flash drive fails

So I bought a 256GB SSD (solid state drive) with USB 3.0 interface. Yes, I'm sure the 2012 Focus MyFord Touch only supports USB 2.0, but USB 3.0 is backwards-compatible.

Unfortunately, I find the 256GB Kanguru SSD does not work in the Focus!!
I formatted it to FAT32 and copied over several folders of WMA lossless music. Doesn't even see the drive. When I plug in a 4GB thumb drive with WMA music it sees it fine.

Any idea if there is something I can do to make this drive compatible with MyFord Touch? I thought FAT32 filesystem was the extent of what is needed. The Kanguru SSD appears to power up fine plugged into MFT . . .

Edit: my USB 2.0 ports on my PC work fine with this USB 3.0 drive, as expected.
