Question iPod/USB Interface

I went searching, but came up empty handed. I wanted to know about what the USB port can do. It says on the official build your own site on bmwusa.com that you can plug in other players, but can you plug in USB thumb drives full of songs?

Also, does the iDrive let you rip MP3s off your CDs? Or at least rip regular CDs?

Thanks!

Affirmative. That's what I use, and have the same control as an iPod (which I don't like or own). My $10 USB has the capacity of many CD changers, and no moving parts . I keep it inside the iPod pouch all the time. I also manipulate the info so the screen shows what I want.

You can rip mp3 CDs, regular CDs, & download music from the thumb drive to your car's HD. You can not transfer music from your ipod or records songs from the radio.
