Questions RE CDC+MP3 (e90 330i)

I have a very early e90 330i SE august 2005. Spec included iDrive with widescreen nav, bluetooth and audio aux in, but only basic stereo (which is a bit muddy sounding but ok as far as Im concerned). I found the single CD slot a bit limiting, so bought a OEM CD changer from a breakers (#65126977759-01), managed to connect it up to the MOST thingy, and got my local BMW indy to code it (and apply all updates) for 50. This works great for audio CDs, but ideally I want to get all (4gb+) of my music in the car and be able to play it via the iDrive controls.

I have tried burning loads of MP3 cds for the changer using different media, diff settings, etc and no matter what I do the iDrive will not recognise them. I have a suspicion that the iDrive itself might not be able to recognise MP3s and that the CD changer is ok has anyone for any experience in this area / possible fixes?

Ultimately Im thinking Dension gateway 500, but I dont want to go down that route to find out the iDrive itself wont play the MP3s.

Can anyone help?

There is a coding for mp3 cd and generic cd.
If the coding is done for mp3 and you have appropriate hardware, it should work.

Cheers. That makes sense. I had kind of hoped when the car was previously coded "with all the updates" it would include stuff like that but I guess I've got to ask for it specifically?
