I promised a pic of my CD interface which had been recoded.

Notice the status in the bottom left says MP3 CD 06 (Everything in the iPod), but the CD selection is as per having a CD changer fitted. On random play it does work like the Shuffle feature on the iPod, the only disadvantage being that if you don't want to listen to the track it selects and press next it plays the next track in the list and not another random track.

Issuing VC "CD 1" garners a response "MP3 in slot 1".

Can anyone verify this works with the video ipod? Obviously I don't expect it to play the videos, but that it can still control the music? I have a pioneer avic d2 in my truck and the ipod adapter works for a regular ipod, but not for the video ipod.

One comment to add to my post above that got triggered by some of you that cant get it to work:

I first tried to hook up an older 40GB (Second or Third Generation - not sure) I-POD and it did NOT work. The CD sign on the I-Drive just remained greyed out.

I then attached a newer 4GB I-POD Nano. The BMW logo came up immediately on its screen and it worked as it should. On a side note: I am not a I-Tunes user - I use Ephod to put stuff on it - and have absolutely NO issues.

According to the booklet my older I-Pod should have worked - but it did not.... Whatever - I dont care - that old one needs to get retired anyway. Good excuse to go out and buy a brand new 60GB one.....

The IPod I tried is several years old. Not sure the generation but
it's a 60 gig one. I have a new one coming in this week. I'll give it a
shot again this weekend and hopefully it will work. It seems odd that
I'm the only one who's had problems thus far. I'd hate to take it
to the dealership but it looks like I might have to.

Phlegomon, on the older Ipod did the screen on your ipod appear
with the BMW logo yet didn't register in the idrive? This is what's
happening with me.

4th Gen 3.1.1
5th Gen (Photo) 1.2.1
mini 1.4.1
nano 1.1
Video 1.1

Make sure your older Ipod has the latest software on it. At least as new as the versions Tim lists above.

Ah...just checked out my ipod. It's a photo with version 1.0. This is
probably the problem. I guess I should learn how to read someday.
Thanks for the replies.

Okay. Installed again with new Ipod and it works! The whole zip tie
install is really shaky and I'm not exactly happy with it but as long as
it stays put it's better than the CD changer.

I found the same annoying things that others have found. Namely
that it doesn't pick up where you left off if you shut the car off. And
the scroll going to the top of the list everytime is brutal. Oh well.
Hopefully these things can be fixed with new software someday.

Thanks everyone for the insights.

I was thinking about the limitations of the interface this afternoon. I think what I'll do is edit out the highlights of the thread I started into a document and send it to BMW UK and my dealer principal. I have a good relationship with both and while neither of them will be able to guarantee any action, at least they'll know the opinions of a group of people rather than just an individual.
