08' 335i help with iPod/idrive system

I just bought a CPO 335i and cant seem to figure out how to use my iPod. Can anyone with idrive and the iPod hookup tell me if I'm doing something wrong? I can't seem to figure out how to get a list of artists? I can only see each individual song by alphabet so its really hard to listen to music. I've clicked up down left right and held the button down and still nothing. I think they might have installed it wrong bc the iPod is under cd1 and not aux?! I'm not sure so I took a video of it with my phone (sorry quality)



any help would be awesome! TIA

After you select AUX/Ipod, the next level down you should have the choice of playlists, songs, there should be artists as well.

For some reason I'm not getting the next list down. I choose iPod and then it goes directly to a list of the songs. I've tried holding the idrive button down, going up, left, right, down, and turnig and I still can't get to anything but the long list of songs sorted by alphabet.

Do you guys choose 'cd1' to get to your iPod or is yours under 'aux'. The tech that installed mine did it under 'cd1'.

Noooooo.... I have the factory installed 6FL Ipod option. Is your aftermarket? Normally the aftermarket ones make you select cd1. However with the aftermarket ones select cd2 or cd3 and that normally is the artists or playlists

No, it goes directly to the Youtube site.

Ok talked to the service guy that installed it and he said the only thing I can do is if I make a playlist with 'BMW' in the title and that would show up but there was no way to see artists??!! This doesn't seem right and definitely not what I wanted.

Is anyone familiar with this?
