United-States USB software updates?

I have a 2010 S. I'm trying to find out if there is a software patch/update that will allow the USB port (and CD player?) to recognize and play Lossless (FLAC) music files.

In general, is there a website that lists Mini software patches/updates?

Thanks

I think if you go onto the Mini connected website there should be the updates to download.

Thanks but....

My 2010 is Pre Mini Connectivity. The USB port is "hidden" down behind the Aux. power input on the center console...

My USB port is "Hidden" too, it is in the cubby hole behind the gearstick and power socket.

Continued situational definition...

The instructions on that page are for Mini's with the center console display. MY MINI DOESN'T HAVE THIS DISPLAY and therefor NO menu option for software update onboard. I have downloaded the bin file and put it on a USB thumb drive and put it into the USB port in my Mini, but have no way to upload it.
And it seems that Mini Connect is for iPhones... I have a Samsung Note 3.

I'm pretty sure it won't play FLAC, mores the pity. Love to be proved wrong though.
