    hello all,

    can anyone out there tell me if there is a way to get the track names to show up the radio display. i have cd's w/ mp3 tracks on them and the only thing that shows on the display is track # 1,2,3, etc........ is there any way to get the name of the song to show on the display? i have used the same cd's in other radio systems(factory) and the name of the song shows up on the display.

    thanx in advance for your help.............

    ID3 tags?

    I don't know, but I know what I would check first.

    Do you know that the tracks have ID3 tags? Do you know which version of ID3 tags they have?

    I can tell you that tags produced by iTunes and tags from Amazon MP3 purchases all work in my 2008 stereo (both on MP3 CDs and on USB sticks).

    If you don't know what ID3 tags are, look here:

    I doubt ID3 tags are the issue. His E46 is recent enough to not have that problem of ID3 version compatibility...

    Unless BMW slacked off with their CD system!
