I was upgrading my new to me S60 when during the down load phase vida ask for a Volvo approved usb drive.
I down loaded the users guide and it does state that a usb drive needs to be used to transfer the software to the car now. Yes I did try to use a normal usb stick and it didn’t like it,

Here is the information from Volvo

Good to know. Thank you for sharing.

Not sure if it will work for MOST upgrades though.
