HELP - Cant update idrive via USB

Post by Chriseve41 » Mon Mar 12, 2018 2:57 pm

Afternoon all,
I have downloaded the latest .bin file from BMW (UPD05074)to update my idrive

My current idrive is:
Media - MN-003.003.001
Telphone - TN-003.003.001

When i plug in my formatted usb with the file on it (in root of usb)I get this error:
File is not compatible etc.

What is the problem here?

The update you are trying to do is only for the internal combox for bluetooth, not the actual firmware on the headunit - you need to go to either a Main Dealer or an independant to get that updated.

The updates on BMW's website are not relevant now.
