If the car is prompting you for a software update when you plug the flash drive into the glovebox usb port, then let it do its thing. You'd have to format the drive in order to lose anything. If you're running Windows, check under My Computer to see if the flash drive popped up as a removable device as the program might not be set to autorun. Otherwise I'd just wait to hear back from the dealer with instructions.
