    Hello to everyone. I recently came back from BMW to yet again to join the ranks of MB owners. I live in the north of England.

    Hi John. Just recently learned that it's not possible to download CD to the hard drive due to copyright legislation. So I downloaded my music from my computer onto a USB stick and bingo! It downloaded onto my ML'S hard drive fine. Strange really my previous car (BMW 5 SERIES) Would accept a CD and download to hard drive quite happily.

    LOL this is actually quite simple with a BMW When you load a new CD It just asks do you want to save to hard drive.

    Ah, BMW, the car with no indicators. Is this your diary Roy?:p

    A Day in the Diary of a BMW Driver

    "The other day I was cruising along as usual coming onto one of my motorways, which was very busy with inferior cars. First off, I couldn't believe that the volume of traffic DIDN'T slow down for me AT ALL as I came off the slip road! I had to squeeze into a barely big enough gap between two cars in order to get onto my motorway! The driver of the car behind me did realise his mistake though and honked an apology to me with a long blast of his horn.

    Unbelievably, I had to do the same again before I could get to the BMW lane. Anyway, once I was in the BMW lane and posing along at 110 mph enjoying the adulation that the inferior car drivers were giving me, I noticed an inferior car ahead of me which was not only in the BMW lane of my motorway, but was driving at a ridiculous 70 mph!
    Naturally, I got within a foot or so of his rear bumper and flashed my headlights to remind him he shouldn't be in the BMW lane of my motorway and to get out of my way. Of course, once he realised it was a BMW behind him, he did just that, but I could hardly believe it when he pulled straight back out behind me!
    He also tried to keep up with me and when he realised I would out-run him, he put on some blue lights in his front grill and urged me to get onto the hard shoulder so that he could congratulate me on my excellent car. Needless to say, I was eager to oblige and when we had stopped, the man gave me a piece of paper confirming what I already knew - that my car goes fast!

    Apparently he wants everyone to know what a superior car I have, so I had to take my driver’s licence to a police station to be sent away to have some points put on! (They're not free points either - they're £20 each and I was only allowed 3.) But the man at the police station said that because I drive a BMW, it won't be much longer before I earn the full 12 points, and then I won't even NEED a driving licence, so they will take it off me! See, now THAT'S the sort of respect you get when you own and drive a BMW! "

    No point at all Roy.
    Seems humour doesn't reach ex BMW owners.
    Over and out.

    Falling about in fits of laughter here at your rudeness very well disguised as humour. Trying to be funny at someone else's expense is always a cheap shot....Obviously, you couldn't even resist it in your last post.

    Regarding loading CD's, I could not do this with my 2014 E300 Hybrid which had a 10gb drive for music.

    I loaded the music onto and as a data DVD which of course enables you to load several CD's in one go.

    Did seem strange as my previous car a Toyota did allow this to be done.
