USB drive 'can't play file'

has anyone else had this issue?

with a USB drive in the port in the armrest, when going through the idrive menu from selecting the drive/album/all tracks/start playback, each time I change from one album to the next, it comes up with the message
'can't play file'
the display stays in the album, but continues to play the track that was playing.
If I then go back a step and select all tracks again and then the first song on the album it plays fine.

Yes. I have same problem. I noticed that there are some index files that were created by the media system when I plugged in the thumb drive. It tries to play the system files for some reason and then you get the error message. If I am in an album folder I don't have these issues. It seems that the root of the drive has these system files only so I can't play the whole the drive randomly. Must pick genre or Artist or Album and I have no problem.
