iDrive music collection issue

Post by mikesmith2939 » 30 Jun 2018, 11:32

I have a 2013 320i xdrive with navigation.

The problem I seem to have is that I don't have the import export music option or the music collection option.

I have the usb in the glovebox and also in the armrest.

When I plug a flash drive in under the armrest it will play all the music files.

Was this feature missing from the earlier F30's?

I believe it was a cost option- I doubt it was cheap so many buyers will have not bothered in preference to Ipod and now phones............

Do you have any reference to 'Music Collection' in the iDrive menus? There's a chance, if it is fitted, that it may be already full which is why you don't have the import option. If you do have it, you should have the option to 'mange' the music collection. I have it on my 2012 sDrive 330d F31 which I haven't had long so I'm still quite new to it.... (also have an E36 so the difference in tech is pretty huge!! :D )

No music collection option at all on the iDrive.
