MP3s on USB Drives

I'm about to create a USB drive with music for my brand new EXL-RES and have a couple of questions.

1) I assume FAT32 (and not NTFS) is the file format to use. Can someone confirm?

2) Is there a specific way to organize the MP3 files on the USB drive? Is it okay to have a folder for each artist and subfolders within for each album?

3) Will the Pilot play Windows Playlist (.wpl) files? If not, can you create playlists with the Pilot's interface?

Any other advice would be appreciated for my first attempt at this. Thanks.

I used a short usb drive inserted in the inside console usb port. Formatted to FAT32. Mine is organized by artists. I don't have any other playlists within the artists folders. I don't find the interface on the Pilot as user friendly as my Chevy Silverado 2015.
