Same song plays at start up on my USB or Nav HDD

So I have this weird issue and i'm hoping to see if anyone as seen it. I have a 2015 335i with the HK sound system and Nav.

When I start my car up, the same song will be playing at the same time.

Now I don't mean the same song where I last left off, I'm stating the same song will be playing everyday.

Every time I start my car, the one song will be playing again even if I changed artist and songs from my last drive.

Its like I'm living in Groundhogs day.

Everyday i'm getting "Drunk on a plane" with Dirks Bentley about 3/4 the way into the song.

The prior song was worse and I deleted it and though I fixed the issue but it keeps coming back.

This is happening with USB and also Media Library.

This might have started around a month ago as it was working normal before.

Has anyone heard of this????? I would really like a solution

Thank you!!

Groundhog's Day? I'm thinking Christine.

Is the song listed as one of your favorites? That's the only thing I can think of.

The car always plays the 1st song alphabetically from my music library on start up from my iphone when connected via bluetooth. It is very annoying.

I wish there was a way to resume playing what was played before I shut the car off.

If you have Apple Music, anything that is saved or downloaded in your music library will automatically play first regardless, I deleted the song and it no longer happens, I just stream music now from Apple Music, (also if you switch to HQ music it sounds even better)

I have 1600 + songs in my library. The last song played when I shut the car off is always the first song playing when I startup the car. What I have done that most are not willing, is installed all my songs on the hard drive. Since you have Nav, you are able to install your songs instead of using bluetooth or having your iphone hooked up constantly. For my purposes, this is the greatest method of playing my library. I have access to 20GB of disk space and it is fast and reliable. Never had a problem. Once you learn how to import your songs using a USB flashdrive, it is very easy from then on. If you need help, let me know. By the way, it takes less than 12 minutes to install 1600 + songs to the hard drive.

What I've done, on my iPhone, setup an automation with the Shortcuts app that triggers when CarPlay connects, and it pauses whatever song is playing over Bluetooth.

This may not pertain to you, but it's an option that's worked well for me.

So this sort off happens to me. But I think it's normal.

I believe our cars automatically play the first song in your library everytime. But for me, I notice this is especially true when your music app is closed out on my iPhone.

When the music app is open on my iPhone it will usually pick up right at whatever song is playing on the app.

Its not the first song in my library.... that's not the issues and its also not with a connected phone. I've seen that in other cars.

Its playing the songs store on a USB drive or the media library hard drive in the car.

Its plays from the middle of the same song every time I start the car.

If i'm listening to a totally different playlist or band it reverts back to the same song about part way though on start up.

:-)

Ever startup, I re-listen to the same song at the same section played. Everyday...

This is how I play my music. I use the nav HDD. When I park my car listening to anything else, at start-up it plays the same country song about part way through.

I've noticed this too on Bluetooth. What I can tell is anytime you watch a video it closes your music app and resets to the first song in the library.

What type of files have you installed on the hard drive mp3, mp4 or FLAC or some
other format?

If I left off at song 1260 when I shutoff the car, upon startup that's the song that
starts playing assuming it wasn't finished upon shutdown. Mine never plays the same
song on startup because I use random sort. Do you have the random block checked in setup?

It's also possible that my version of idrive is different than yours which could be causing
the song discrepancy with your version.

For example. If I start my car, song 1122 plays on the HDD or USB at 1:04 and then I change playlists or albums and listen for my drive. I then get to work and shut the car off for example on song 2301 or some other album playing.

When I start the car song 1122 starts playing at 1:04 again.

Its like the car forgot it played anything and it just resumes from some point in the past.

Thinking its a head unit issue or battery...

its still going on.

still under CPO for about 4 more months but I don't think electronics are covered.

Thanks for the help.
