Ipod Interface Retrofit Question

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've recently upgraded my 2006 535d with the official BMW ipod interface. As my car came with the cd changer from factory I thought this would be a simple plug and play.  Installation was easy enough, the ipod connects and BMW logo is displayed, however, I cant access the ipod via idrive as all the settings are greyed  out. After further research online, I've discovered that the car must be capable of playing mp3 cd's in the main unit and my car has never been able to read mp3's.

I've downloaded standard tools and I'm planning on giving the mp3 coding a try. I'm quite nervous though as I've never coded before and don't want to brick something. I've watched a couple of guides on youtube but I'm confused as the 2 video's appear to use different methods to achieve the same goal. Is 1 of them wrong or is there more than one way to skin this cat. I've attached links below
