You should be able to burn the music from your DVD's onto your drive, or what I do is use a USB drive because it seems to transfer the music much more quickly.
oh no i know that but in order to play off a flash drive or an external hard drive i believe you need that USB port for the iPod. I'm so pissed BMW does it that way. they didn't have to. the usb in my glovebox is useless unless i want to transfer music to my HD

thats crazy i'd like to see this. i think i'll youtube it...

The diesel seems more efficient at idle then moving under 20 mph like in traffic

Good night guys!
