Intelligently playing my Music Collection?

Hello - new M3 owner and am still learning how to use all the features in the Technology Package...

I have started to rip CD's to the built in storage in my car but can't seem to figure out how to intelligently "play the music..." For example:

1. Play "all" my music, randomly?
2. Play the music by Genre?
3. Play by Artist?

Any idea where are these play controls are buried? Thanks in advance

(switching to this section, from the AV hoping for some insight)

I use a few years old 60GB iPod to hold my music. It's sorted by Artits, then Album and synced with iTunes to load new content. I never tried to store music on car's HD, it may work diffrently then iPod.

Finally figured out how to do this if folks have ripped CD's to the HDD in the car.

There is a search function: CD -> Music -> Search. For option:
  1. Select all for ALL fields; search. Music starts to play. Push the Options button (on the console), select random play.
  2. In the search dialog select the genre. Search. Play
  3. In the search dialog select the artist. Search. Play

PS: Random play works for option #2 and #3 too.
