Question Problem with iPod Classic & audiobooks on 2013 X3

When I connect my iPod Classic to the USB connection in the armrest (via the standard white iPod cable), the mp3 files work, no problems with sound or viewing album art.
But, when I play Audible audiobooks sometimes the artwork appears, sometimes it doesn't and sometimes the file plays for 10 minutes and more often it plays for about 30 seconds to one minute before I have to push the iDrive button to restart where it disconnected. Any suggestions? I can't change the file type - is it a cable issue? Since I travel a lot and regularly listen to audiobooks from Audible, having to restart the playback every minute or two is getting aggravating. Thanks.
