E92 USB Audio Interface

I purchased a 2008 E92 last weekend with a USB audio interface. I order a cable from eBay which arrived today to connect my 80GBiPod classic. This cable

The music plays and works with the steering wheel controls but it doesn't display track names or albums on the iDrive display. Here's a photo.



Is this normal or am I doing something wrong.

LCI?

HHD CIC?

I suspect not.

I have and it looks nothing like mine.

I use the standard apple cable and get full ipod functionality including album art.

"It is important to note that this cable is not compatible with the 6 Series, X5, X6 or later model 3 series or 5 series. For these cars you require our other BMW cable (see our other listings). If in doubt please ask."

For LCI 3 series the normal apple cable works fine. No need for any special one.

I bought the wrong cable. Doh'

I'll try my standard apple cable and see if that works.

I've just tried my apple USB cable and everything works fine. I can't get album art to work though.

You won't get it to show your album art. Only the latest idrive system supports this. Not even my 58 plate with HDD nav does this

Mine is 9/10 build so that explains why I can then.

Seems to but I hardly use it (use the music centre)

But I have a spare cable to charge from the cig lighter if necessary.
