E90 Sat Nav Hard Disk

I have a 2011 E90 with the Hard Disk based Sat-Nav. This leaves 16Gb of space for me to load on MP3 audio files.

Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade the hard disk with a larger drive. I have a few laptop sized SATA drives that would give a lot more than 16Gb space.

Many thanks

Kenny

I don't think anyone knows what file structure or formatting the original hard drive is.

If you can figure that out, I don't see why you can't clone the original.

I would try upgrading to a SSD. Why BMW didn't implement this in the first place is kinda dumb. A mechanical drive in an auto environment that is constantly exposed to vibration just doesn't make any sense to me. Of course cost was the factor, but c'mon.
