You can't play music directly from the USB port in the glove box, only the port in the arm rest.

I don't know why BMW designed it that way, but that's the way it is.

I tried putting a USB HUB in the armrest USB port to see if I could connect multiple thumb drives, but that didn't work either. The still only showed one of the drives.

That's one of the reasons I got BMW Assist; it allows me to stream music from my Blackberry and iPhone without using a USB port.

I want to say that you can also use the Glove Box USB to update the software under connected drive
