I've been told that the new 2005 Mini radios play MP3s.
The Mini website does not mention this. Any idea if
it's really true?

:) I know that the new BOOST Radio/CD plays MP3 CD's, as does the H/K CD (which is the BOOST Radio/CD headunit).

Whether WAVE Radio/CD units play MP3 CD's I don't know for sure... :(

Hope this helps a bit... :)

Do I see this right, is the Radio Boost a product from Harman/Kardon? Sounds good to me!

Not quite edgar... The H/K system adds an H/K Multi-channel DSP Amp and H/K speakers to the normal BOOST headunit. Work well :) sounds good :cool: looks inconspicuous ;) ...

Only 2005 and above.
and if you put mp3 files in folders called BMW1, BMW2, BMW3, etc... then you can use your CD buttons.

Can this be done with discs made with itunes? If so -- can you advise how?

What? I have no clue what that means. The other MP3 thread in this thread describes all the functions of the new '05 HU, as well as how to make folders for the HU.
what he was trying to say was that if you named the folders BMW1, BMW2, etc. that you could use the 1-5 buttons on the radio to change between those folders directly.
Unfortunately that doesn't work. I tried it with the last MP3 CD I burned that it had absolutely no effect.

Has anyone gotten the 05 Boost H/U to recognize folders? I have tried but it doesn't seem to work, it just plays them all straight through.

I just name my folders whatever I like on the CD and the player recognizes each folder as TR01, TR02, etc. I just don't know how to skip from folder to folder.

Press 'M' and then use the arrow keys to change folders.

scott_roberts, i found out how to change folders! When you're playing your mp3 cd, push the "m" button on the head unit. Now you can change folders by pressing forward or back. When you want to get back to changing tracks, push the "m" again. I have to figure out now if it will recognize more than 6 folders.

I think the amount of folders would be practically unlimited. If there is a limit it might be 255 folders as some other systems have that as an upper limit. I've played several MP3 CD-Rs now and the only problem is with no ID3 tags I can't always see what folder I'm on till I've played a track.
