Mein Auto: 2011 Alpina B7
OK, obviously I am doing something wrong. I have a 2011 Alpina B7 with all of the options including the combox. I downloaded the update to a clean USB drive and plugged it into the console USB plug. When I tell iDrive to Update Software, it says there is no USB device plugged into the USB port. So, I went into the CD/Multimedia menu and it saw the USB drive and even showed me the files on it. At that time, the USB indicator at the top of the screen illuminated as well. I figured that it would now 'see' the USB drive and update the software. But, when I tried again, I got the same message that there is no USB drive plugged in. The USB indicator was still illuminated on the screen. Anybody have any ideas why the car can't see the drive?
