I can confirm, you cannot play music from the USB port in the glove compartment.

Can anyone confirm?
The manual says you can only import/export music from the HDD to the USB glove compartment. I didn't try either since I don't plan on importing them.
So, if you want to play MP3's from a USB drive, you need the 6FL or Premium Sound upgrade.
