Loaded lots and lots of CD's onto the hard-drive on my last long trip, 6 hours driving, 20 Mins average time to burn a CD and still not used 20% of the capacity available. For those loading CD's they go in the system in date order, rather than computer sorted ABC etc.
So far hitting the random play option is only playing 1 CD in random order rather than the entire music collection but I will keep playing, unless anyone knows if its possable ?

surprised no one is using the hard drive to play music and can add value here, is the USB stick the way to go..?

I've got 50 CD's loaded onto my hard drive.......took quite a long time to load them....but have not found anyway to play the tracks/albums in random order yet. It would be a great function if it could be done.

Thanks for reply,I agree it takes for ever to load them and such a shame that we can't play them as random, thought maybe it was just me....
Come on BMW there must be a simply software update..?

Blue Bottle. The color of your X1 is Mineral Grey Metallic, and not Space Grey Metallic as stated above by someone else, right?

My older 535i xDrive is Space Grey Metallic. It's absolutely a very beautiful color. Great choice, Blue Bottle!

Update....if you use the Top 50 tracks facility on the hard drive menu, it will play not just whole albums, but also single tracks from the different albums that you have listened to! For example if you select and play a single track from 50 albums, and during the process play a whole album twice the system will play say twelve tracks from the album and 38 single tracks from the other albums. If you then play a single track several times that will change the priority.

Only discovered this today hope it makes sense

Investor - I am very happy with the colour, even if it was the only part of the car the wife got to pick, shame BMW seem to have droped it from the new range, but will just make ours more unique.
Mulberry - I have a long drive back to the UK tomorrow so will play with the top 50 tracks as I go, thanks for info.

I play my whole music collection (~600 tracks) normally it's set up with all the tracks in alphabetical order which is random enough for me. I do this by doing a search for all artists, all albums etc and this then starts playing track 1 of 600 etc. To really mix it up I have one of the programmable button set to Random. It doesn't retain this setting when the car is started again, but just press the button again for Randon play.

12 hours of driving over the last 4 days, my son feeding CD's into the car about every 15-20 mins (the time it takes to burn onto the hard drive) and still not used 50% of the HD capacity...still loving it..

It's a shame that when you load CD's into the hard drive you dont get album cover art displayed, would be nice if BMW would let you download that to the hard drive

Very hot day here in Holland, got up to 39 C showing as the outside temperature, steering wheel too hot to touch, so for the first time I used the Max Air Con button (Loud Mode), left it running for two mins before I got back in and it did work well, the air con was a life saver here today..
