2012 BMW X3: Stopped Playing My iPod
August 28, 2012
For some reason our BMW X3 will no longer play my iPod. There is a USB connection in the center storage compartment. I've always plugged my iPod into the USB port and the BMW would recognize it and show "Donna's iPod" on the entertainment screen as a media choice. I would then select it and it would play normally. Easy.
But now when I plug in, my iPod makes a connecting noise but the BMW ignores it. I know my iPod is old but it used to work. What gives? I've tried all of the External Device choices and it won't play on any of them. I don't have an AUX cable.
