BMW won't recognize BMW formatted music - SOLVED!

I have 105 CDs, loaded directly from the CD player in my 2016 340i... and saved onto a USB stick.

Plugged in my BMW-formatted USB into my new car, and...

"No media was found".

What's going on? What do I do? I know the music is on there...

No... just the standard usb near the cupholders. It recognizes that there is a drive there..... it just says that there's no media on it.

Thinking when I start diving into bimmercode..... 8f I recall, there is a "play all media types" setting???

Maybe.... we'll see.

In the meantine, I'm slowly loading all my CDs onto the car's hard drive...

.... again.

Why not rip the CDs in FLAC onto your computer and transfer them to the USB?

Hmmm - wasn't aware that the USB A slot could be used for playing media.

Yep. I have a 128gb micro USB in there. Works like a charm. Can't even tell it's in there.

My bad - that's where I have mine! Confusing with the center console C, where I've also plugged in a media drive. Too many danged ports!

You can't play "BMW Formatted" music directly from a USB since it is just a backup. You need to restore the music to the hard drive.
