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.
You do NOT get a USB drive with Premium Sound. I have premium sound and don't have a USB port anywhere (center arm rest or glove box).
