I have a 2006 325I with iDrive and Navigation. I am not sure which navi I have
DVD-R should work. Not reading the disk can be due to various factors
such as the media brand and the DVD player used to create the disk not
writing the disk with high enough intensity such that BMW's DVD player
can read it. The media I used is a Sony DVD-R.
