iPOD Shuffle

I have an iPOD Shuffle (stick flash drive with USB port). When I tried to insert into the USB port in the center glove box, it does not fit. It appears the plastic casing for the iPOD is too wide which prevents from plugging into the opening.

The iPOD connector that came with my X5 doesn't have the right connector for my iPOD Shuffle.

Any ideas?

1. Buy a new iPOD
2. Get an USB extension cable or an adaptor?

I don't want to go too far OT on you, but once you resolve this technical problem would you post how the shuttle works with the iDrive menu? I am using just a USB stick and have to go through more steps that I like to get from one "album" to another.

From what I know, the shuffle does have a different input and totally different (rather non-existant) user interface. My recommendation is to buy a full IPod, you will be able to have much more music and use the Idrive UI.

I believe the shuffle is incompatible with these "normal" ipod interfaces.
