This is exactly what I'm trying to say about the ipod interface. A USB-module will scan the HD faster eliminating the load period on the interface. Why wouldn't it show playlists?? The ipod is essentially a very small expensive external HD with nice buttons on it. When you plug a external HD into a computer via USB it reads everything and displays it for you, i.e. folders, playlists, songs, pics, movies.. whatever. The USB should be able to just search for specific items, like music files. And as long as you have everything named properly why wouldn't it pull up your playlists?

I dunno, this is what I think. I'm just frustrated with the performance of the ipod interface and believe BMW can do a hell of a lot better.
