My data is in the form of large .csv files on a USB. My code is on my laptop (with an active Matlab license). I added the USB drive to the path and tried to run my code, however, I get this error: "failed to convert character code". I am not sure what this means in terms of trying to grab data from a USB and run a code on a laptop?

Open it in a text editor. Truncate off all but, say, 500 lines of it, and save it as a new file. Then attach that csv file here with the paperclip icon.

What is your code? You forgot to attach it or your data. Use an editor to chop off some rows of your csv text file if it's too big.
Have you tried the legacy csvread() function?
