328i Couoe iphone integration

I recently bought a used 2010 BMW 328i coupe with iDrive and premium package. On external devices I see a usb icon and Aux Front. The USB icon always say "Not Supported" on iDrive screen. I see that there is lot of space out of 12 GB remaining.

I then bought "Kensington 2-in-1 Charger and Audio Cable for iPhone/iPod, including iPhone 4S". When I use this cable with my iPhone 4s the USB icon says Reading and it then goes back again to "Not Supproted". Do I've to have BMW Y cable to see my iPhone playlist?

Yes, you do need the Y cable. You can get an aftermarket one from Amazon for $22. Look for neXplug iPod adapter for BMW. It's what I'm using with my 2010 335i

BTW the 12G is the internal hard drive in the idrive. You can copy music to it using the USB plug behind the glovebox door
