Hopefully BMW will replace the defective USB port and it will start working.
Did you try different USB cables? A USB stick with music?

USB ports tend to shut down if it detects problems, but they do not go bad out of the blue often. Let the car go to sleep and try different cables and devices before you waste your time at the dealership, IMO.
