Now it's not working.
First wouldn't see the folder, then it saw the vids, but won't play.

Wondering: does it need time to fully index all the vids?
should the drive be in FAT32? right now its NTFS.
I had the same issue, the car created a junk folder of sorts for whatever reason. you have to go into media in idrive and relocate the folder with the videos.

Or just format the drive and reload the videos and that will fix it too

Thanks for the reply.
I went back and tried again, and now everything is working.
Maybe it ended up relocating.
Do you get this weird thing with two identical folders?
I get that sometimes even with music folders (mp3).

Yeah, that is what I think the "junk" folder is. But all the names of the music and videos are all changed to random letters

With my last 335 (2013), i wasn't able to see album art when i plugged into the glovebox USB.
Hopefully they changed for 2015.
Great idea though. I'm going to try today and see if it works!

It is an extra option. I do not have it in my 2015 335 either.

I am sure there are others. This one is basic and free. That's always a good combination

Also, you are getting full resolution on yours. But OP had issues? Or did you fix it like OP as well?

No there is no usb in the glove box though there is a hole there already for one. I guess previous models used to have a glovebox usb. Check out my build thread for more details on what needs to be done. Long story short...if you have the phone cradle in your center arm rest, you can remove that, then use the USB that was reserved for that and relocate it to the glove box. Even if you dont have the phone cradle option, the head unit has 2 USB ports available on the back to plug into. One is used by the center arm rest USB. Pretty painless and easy mod that cost less than $100. So now I leave the center arm rest USB free. I am very very happy with this mod.

And yes I am getting full resolution. That being said, I am only watching videos in 720p. I have not tried full 1080 yet but I will later.

Let me know if you have any questions.
Hi, can you explain better this mod?

Was just experiencing this on a f15 with NBT. If you disable spilt screen and wait a few seconds it automatically goes to full screen. I had a movie on a flash drive.
