Idrive/video playback

Ok, I have posted a briefer version of this elsewhere.
so apologies for this, but this is the correct forum for this question.

I have the New Pro media package with an f31 thats two weeks old now.
I should be able to play videos from a usb stick connected directly to the port in the armrest.
However i do not get this option at all when i browse through my media options.
Does anyone know any reason for this.
I will be ringing BMW but everyone seems so knowledgable its always worth a try....

I am not aware of a current enhancement realted to video output options, which if correct, means you have two options: (1) DVD player, or (2) snap-in adaptor using an iPod or iTouch ot iPhone. The USB connection dos not support video.

This obviously isn't a 3-series but it shows how to play video from USB on an NBT nav system:

Perhaps the same applies to the NBT on the 3 as well?
