USB connection/Voice Button/Windscreen wipers

Hi All, Just picked up a 2012 Mini SD. last night i tried to connect my Android phone to the USB but it would not play any music through it. It would charge but would not do anything else, Any ideas?

Also i have what appears to be a voice command on the steering wheel, when i press this (my android phone is connected to Bluetooth) nothing happens, even when i hold it in. i have read the manual but there is no acknowledgement of this button.

One last point is the windscreen wipers are far to sensitive, i read there is a way to make them less sensitive but i cannot seem to get this. i get to the set/info menu and all i can select is the 'check' function or 'Home'.

If anyone can shed some light on any of these questions it would be greatly appreciated

Can't help on the USB.

Lots of cars have a voice button (all multi-function steering wheels have one) that doesn't do anything - it was another option that your car may not have.

See below for wiper sensitivity - though adjusting it doesn't have much effect in my experience.
