I also have a USB port, is that for charging only? because if I hook the USB cable to my Iphone it charges but no music

You will have to do a search to get the actual name of the cable (its something like FL6-Y) but for 2007-2009 E93s you needed this Y-Cable to hook an iphone or ipod up and get it controlled through the radio. The cable has one aux jack, one usb connector and one Apple (13 pin?) connector. If you want to go the short and easy route and have the USB connector inside the armrest, just download all your music onto a USB flash (thumb) drive, plug it into the usb port, then choose usb from the input source on your radio. It will take a while to parse the list, but eventually you can sort by album, song title etc via the display panel on your radio. You can even import playlists as long as they are in *.m3u format. There were a lot of posts about this so do a search and you will find a ton of information.

Good Luck.
