I used the Mega desktop client. And I used a free VPN program called Windscribe to change my IP each time I hit the Mega data limit.

Thanks. I downloaded and installed the Windows desktop app, set up a free account, and was (eventually) able to download the file. It appeared to stop at 5 GB increments and made me wait 6 hours between each but this morning I had a 16.4 GB file which extracted into 25 GB of stuff.

I copied things over to a 64 GB USB memory stick such that the root contained the pkgdb folder and config.nfm file. But when I plug it into the port in the glove box, nothing is happening. I wonder if the car isn't liking the large memory stick even though I have formatted it as FAT32. When I upgraded in the past I used a smaller 32 GB memory stick.

I think i remember reading that it would only read/recognize 32gb or smaller flash drive but i might be getting that mixed up with something else.

I'm going to find the 32 GB USB memory stick that I used for previous updates and give it a try.

I was able to update my 11 M3 with SanDisk 128GB USB3.0 drive formatted to FAT32 with MBR partition map. I don't believe you need USB2.0 to get this to work.



All I did was drag all the contents of the "NAVD_00005C4B_255_005_229" folder into the root folder and it was working perfectly. This is far easier than the 4 part method.

I had no issues either using a 128gb flash drive, just did it this morning.

I have a gut feeling your USB is configured as GPT partition map instead of MBR. My 128GB USB was recognizable when it was set to FAT32 and MBR.

I found the SanDisk 32 GB USB memory stick that I used for previous updates and it worked just fine. I'm not sure why the Lexar 64 GB one didn't work. I may fiddle with it some more our of curiosity and will post an update if I discover anything interesting. Thanks to all of those who responded!
