Exclamation 2009 iDrive - In car hard drive music control

Have 2 questions about the '09 iDrive in the (e90) that have been nagging me:

1. I use the built-in hard drive to store/play all my MP3's local to the car. When I use the "random track" option it doesn't stay enabled when I turn the car off & on. My question is is this functioning as designed? If so, it is stupidly designed. IMO

2. Same topic as above, but I noticed incrementing numbers showing up in front the song title of all the songs on the iDrive hard drive. Seems to be every time I enable the "random track" function it adds a new list of numbers assigned to songs without numbers. Weird eh? Again is this functioning as designed?

P.S. - The only reason I use the iDrive Hard Drive instead of the built-in ipod connector is because it doesn't seem to be compatible with an old ipod photo (30GB - 4th Gen). The ipod has been in every car of mine without issue. It is old & bulky but still works great in a car (except BMW's - ugh).

Thanks in advance!
