Possible to randomly play all songs on HDD?

Howdy. I have had my 535i (dark graphite with oyster/black and manual trans.) for exactly two weeks now and am still tweaking settings and learning things about the car but one thing is driving me crazy. I have imported about 30 CDs into the hard drive in the car and would like to randomly play tracks from all albums at once but I can only seem to get the system to randomly play songs within a single album. Is there a way to randomly play all?

also, can you sort the list of folders/albums on the HDD or does it always list them from first loaded to last loaded?

Thanks
David

What you can do is to save all your albums on an USB stick, and import from there. You will get an "USB" folder that contains all your music, and you can randomly play every song within it.

From what I hear the song quality will be better too, if you convert the songs yourself. The conversion done by the car is of worse quality.
