I have a 160gb iPod Classic that lives in the console hooked up using a BMW "Y" connector. Every once in a while, maybe twice per month, it locks up and I need to hard reboot it. (hold the menu and center button until the Apple logo appears). It always works after that and I've never lost anything on the iPod.
I'm using a "Y" cable because with an Apple white USB cable, it will go into "Alvin and the Chimpunks mode" and play everything at a very fast speed. Apple even replaced the iPod and the new one did the same thing. I also had the exact same issues with this iPod in my 2012 550i xDrive.
