Music tracks from USB drive NOT displayed in instrument cluster. Why?

I have a portable USB stick plugged into my armrest. Until today I've always been able to see all my songs displayed in the instrument cluster. I did this by selecting the USB/Audio option from the "Mode" button on the steering wheel.

Now my entire track list is no longer visible in the the instrument cluster...tried disconnecting and reconnecting my USB key but the tracks still don't show up. I must have hit some setting by mistake.

How do I get all my songs displayed again in the instrument panel?

I have been having the same problem with both USB and with bluetooth streaming. When USB connected, the song images will sometime show and sometimes not show (not because there isn't any art for them either). It is totally random. When bluetooth, sometimes it will download the whole library, sometime, just a couple songs, then 30 songs -- never consistent. I paid for enhanced bluetooth -- so far, not so enhanced.

leave the usb key in the car for a while. The idrive computer needs to boot its software. This takes a couple minutes or longer. Then the IDrive scans your USB drive to get the names to put into idrive. If your remove the usb drive I think this process gets repeated. The scanning depends on the speed of your USB key and amount of songs. This scanning can take a while. Give it time, it will pop up unless there is an issue with your USB drive.
