Need help EXPORTING MUSIC

Hi. I'm moving from a 2011 F10 to a new 2013. I can't get my music stored on the car's HD to export to my USB thumbdrive in the glove box. When I 'click' on export, it says to attach a USB device, which I've already done, but then nothing happens.

I believe it takes a while to fully read the USB drive. Give it some time.

Have you tried (or do you have) a USB in the console? That one allowed me to load a 2013 F10 from a thumb drive.

Smed... I'm pretty sure this is your answer. I read somewhere the USB in the center console is the only one that can talk to the music/entertainment system. The one in the glove box is for updates & car-data-file uploads.

The one in the glove box is the one that's used to transfer import/export music.

You're right. I just went back and read the CIC manual. Center console is for playing audio, glove box for importing.
