Question IDrive USB Galaxy S2 connectivity 335i (2008)

Anyone managed to wade through getting the IDrive to recognize the music on Galaxy S2 automatically (by just plugging it in)? If so, how?

Background: I just replaced a HTC Incredidle running Froyo with the Galaxy S2. On the HTC, I learned that by setting the USB connect option to "Charge Only" and using an application called "Auto Mount". My internal SD-Card would be fully recognized (i.e. I could pull up playlists, artists, etc.) in the console. All that I had to do was plug it in...It would charge and all the music was fully accessible (this is what I want on the S2!).

The S2 doesn't have the "Charge Only" setting (I believe this is unique to this phone) and Auto Mount causes a USB drive to show up along with the SD card drive. When that happens, the car only recognizes one drive -- the wrong one. Also, when I plug in the S2, the phone beeps at you constantly until you tell it how to connect. I want to plug in it and go without have to setup it up each time...
