Can you describe the file structure of your CD? I burnt a mp3 CD using DeepBurner and all I did was drag a few dozen mp3's into the root CD directory and then I added another folder of mp3's to the root directory. So basically, I had a bunch of mp3's in the CD's root directory and then a subfolder with more mp3's in there. Then I took it to the dealership to test it out (in a non-iDrive car) and nothing worked.

I'm guessing you need a flat file hierarchy to have it work properly. I haven't gone back to check, but maybe someone can confirm this. Has anyone gotten a mp3 CD to work if it has folders/subdirectories in it? If so, maybe I the software I used to burn the CD's isn't compatible with the e90. Thanks.
