Evo 4G LTE USB connection help

I am loving my new 335i SL. One thing I am diggin around to find some help with is getting my new Sprint EVO 4G LTE to play music on the removable microsd card. And to display album art. I fugure out that you have to have the phone connect in the PC Sync mode to have the F30 recognize that there is a USB connection. Form there I can browse the directory and see the file structure on the phones internal memory but I cant see the microsd card where all the music is.

I DO NOT have NAV or APPS. I do have the advanced bluetooth and USB option and Premium Sound.

I tried out my friends iPhone 4s with his white apple cable and it worked great. All his music and Album art etc.

I have been searching though XDA and PPCGeeks but have had no luck yet. I guess that I can always just buy a USB stick and load the music up but I would like to figure it all out so I can hook any phone to the car.

TIA

Nope,

I loaded up a single mp3 to the internal drive and it shows the album art and plays the track. Also, that would mean that all those out there in BMW land that load up files onto a usb drive and play from that are seeing the album art by magic.

If album artwork is supported via USB other than from the iPhone, this is different from my 2012 F10 and my 2011 (Combox) 335i. I absolutely can't get album artwork to work except via the iPhone. It would be great if they changed this. . .
