Question iDrive can't see iPhone 4 music or play list

I just purchased a used 2011 335is that was manufactured in late 2010. I'm able to link my iPhone 4 via BlueTooth and see my contacts and place calls. However, I am not able to see any music. When I go to multi-media it shows the USB selection as "Unsupported" when I plug in my iPhone. I updated my iPhone to the latest iPhone version, 4.3.5, but it still didn't solve the problem. I have an old nano (first nano produced), and when it's plugged into the USB the iDrive recognizes it and allows selection of music, calendars, etc.

What do I need to do to be able to play music from my iPhone 4?

Any help would be appreciated!

Regards,
KeithB

I'm using a standard iPod cable (which works with the older iPod Nano, but not the iPhone 4). I don't have the 'Y' adapter, but I didn't think they were necessary anymore.

I've tried both the USB port in the glove box and in the console.

Thanks,
