No album art with hard drive tunes

When I play tunes either from my IPhone connected or blue tooth, the album art is displayed. When I play tunes from the car's hard drive (loaded through the USB port in the glove box) no album art is displayed. Did I load them incorrectly or is this a flaw in the iDrive system?

I believe Album art is not supported from HD.

Really? I can't believe BMW would be that far behind the 8-ball with this technology not to support album art in a system like this. Frankly, I still can't believe they don't support email or text messaging with the iphone. Newer American cars are coming out with Internet searches and more... they'd better get with it.

I know. I am really disappointed that Office does not work on my iPhone 4. Just blackberries I understand. Geez I just dumped my BB for iPhone and now my new $52k car won't even read a text message.

I feel your pain! Where can we go to voice our concerns? Is there a "suggestion box" somewhere that BMW reads?

You can order Internet for the F30. I'm not sure how much I'll use it but it was only 95 extra to add it...(in the UK). Seemed like a no brainer.

That's about $150 or €120.
