Thinking about trying an SSD instead of the iPod since it continues to freeze up every so often and has to be reset to work again.
What bit depth/sample rate are your WMA Lossless files? 16 bit/44.1 KHz or below is the only format of WMA Lossless that will play on the updated iDrive. I have over 1,000 WMA Lossless files on my USB stick, and they all play flawlessly. I tried 24/96 WMA Lossless from the Beatles USB collection, and they failed to play. While 16/44.1 isn't the most ideal format, it is the combo that CDs use, and anything above that is rare in the music industry.
