iPod does not connect

Sorry to start another post on this topic, but I am totally frustrated and I have read all the posts regarding this topic and I still can figure it out.

I have iPod Nano 4gb. I have F30 with nav, extended BT and BMW Assist. When I plug the iPod into USB in armrest it just says do not disconnect and nothing actually connects to my media sources in iDrive. I drove around for 30 min and nothing actually connects. It plays directly though aux of course but I want to be able to control it through iDrive. Again my understanding with all the options I purchased that all I needed was the Apple USB connector to change control and connect to car. By the way my iPhone 4 works fine with the same cable. Stumped?

Screw it, I created a thumb drive of my iTunes collection folders and it works like a charm with Album Art. Just leave it in armrest USB. Connect my iPhone via bluetooth....done. Now BMW and Apple please add Office capability as my investment in all this technology is running close to worthless. I feel like a bought a $50k KIA.

FYI, iPod Nano 2nd gen does not work in my USB armrest. BMW Canada says 4th gen or newer.
