I'm using a 32Gb PNY stick with WMA. I had some strange problems the first time I loaded it, where the car would stop recognizing songs. I reformatted and reloaded all my songs, and it's been perfect from then on. You do need to leave the stick in for a while with the larger drives so the car can index the files. You might just try reformatting the stick and reloading the music files.

Hi, just got my '07 335i. Where is the USB port? Is it near the Aux IN jack? If so, I might not have this option.

Left side of panel behind glove box door is the one for loading music. Inside the center console is the one for playing direct from USB if your vehicle is so equipped. If just an AUX jack, you probably don't have the 6FL option.

Ok, no USB there. I don't have it I guess. There's no mention of USB in my manual. It's an early build '07 - November 2006.

apparently not available until 3/07 - http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=258477

I just formatted mine to FAT32. I don't know why it was flakey the first time I tried, but it's working great now.
