When I click on ĎModeí it looks like I have only 2 options ďRadio(FM/AM) and CDĒ and itís the same with the USB input, I connected a USP which has songs folder in it and itís the same thing I donít see any options to play from USP.

Before this I had 2010 328i in which I used to play music via Auxiliary input and USB, isnít it something which should be by default? The mistake I did is I didnít check these when I looked at the vehicle before purchase thinking that its X3 and it should have better features then my 3 series. Itís very disappointing..

is something wrong with the car or those features or not in there ? please help.
Have you browsed to Cd/ Multimedia and chose External Devices ? it has the option for AUX and USB ..
