2010 328i e92 usb issues

Hey guys,

Recently picked up my 2010 e92 and I've had some issues with using a flashdrive in the USB compartment. I got one for free that I loaded up with music and when I plug it into my car it gets recognized after a few minutes. However, when I play music it gets incredibly laggy and often times just cuts halfway through songs. I can't tell if my audio system is faulty or if I have a faulty USB drive. I don't have I-drive so I'm just using the basic head unit. I just wanted to know your experience with an SSD or if all the usb drives are generally faulty.

Thank you!

I tried plugging my iPod into the USB port as well, but it couldn't read the playlists and would create some very loud awkward noises.

You need to buy an iDrive adapter or use an auxiliary cable to connect your iPod directly.

Can't you transfer it to the harddrive instead of playing it from the flash drive though? I thought that was an option, i could be wrong though.

I should clarify, im not using a ipod to connect because ive noticed that doesnt work. Instead I found a shitty USB stick laying around and loaded it with music. Once connected to my car, it indexs the music but just glitches and cuts halfway through the song. I was wondering if anyone else had this issue and if buying a certain USB stick will work better haha

It is most likely the USB drive. Is it USB 2.0 or 3.0? Have you tried using a different thumb drive?

No not yet and its probably a usb 2.0. I was leaning towards a SSD since those are known to be faster. I was curious to see what experiences people had with various USB sticks and what works best!
