Inconsistent Album Art on Ipod Files

Whats up all.

Quick question--just got a 2011 M3 Sedan with the 6NR option. I use an ipod touch via the USB (White cable) and it works great---occasionally I notice that if I load new music on the ipod (all via ITUNES on a mac) the album art won't show up---usually after I unplug the ipod from the car USB (in the console) several times, then it works.

Today, I bought music wirelessly on my ipod touch via Itunes and the album art just won't show up. I'm going to sync it with my computer to see if that fixes it..any thoughts??

Yeah I have similar issues. I know the album art is there but for some reason it won't display on the iDrive screen.

Not entirely sure. All I know if that I am very disappointed with the interaction of the iphone/ipod with the car. I end up wasting more time getting things to work than having them work the way they are supposed to.

Hey man---what I found out today about the album art was that when I downloaded the itunes music directly to the ipod touch it didn't show up, but then when I synced the ipod with my mac and then re-connected it, it showed up like magic. maybe that sync has something to do with allowing the art to show up?

Odd indeed.

I have the same issue but just with Pandora

If you use Pandora directly then it has some album art synch issues. It was driving me nuts so I had to code 6NR. Now If I use 6NR Pandora App then no issues.

Still if I go back to using Pandora as an external device then the issues are still there.

Seems like BMW needs to issue an album art fix.
