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

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.
