    Audi special edition hard drive

    ok so i got one of these for my 07 lemans as it has the ami etc all there and thought great loads of music. prob is when i plug it in it comes up with an error message, is it something silly like the software in car needs upgrading to work with this? have tried another lead to rule this out

    It's the USB Support for the MMI, unfortutanely your MMI has to be updated to resolve this. There is only one mini USB lead so that is irrelevant and not the issue.

    So you've got 3450, I would guess you need to get to 5570 to get full support for USB

    So 19 for something that costs less than 8 from the dealership and can easily be downloaded from the net.

    My point Craig was the dealers can be obstructive in selling these disks. It was nothing to do with the cost.

    And the dealers have every right to be so as they are for internal use only (officially)

    Hi Gavin

    Dragging this one up from the depths, I can tell you I had the same problem with my 57 plate Le Mans running 5570 software. Seems the HDD needs to be formatted FAT32, which my Windows 7 PC wouldn't read. I made the mistake of formatting again, I assume it did it NTFS.

    Either way, re-formatting it again FAT32 got it working. I used my Linux box, but an old PC would do it. I also assume there is a patch somewhere to make Win7 work.

    Good luck with it. BTW, if you want a set of 5570 discs, mine are now surplus to requirements. They're CDR's, but they upgraded my car just fine. Just cover the P&P and they're yours.

    Cheers, Chris

    i mananged to get it going. i got the gen discs then upgraded and too found the drive needed to be reformatted in fat32 as a primary master or boot drive..... i too hav win 7 but if u use western digitals software for disc formatting it allows u to format in the correct format.

    Hi Gavin, appears I have the same issue. manaul clearly states that NTFS is the preferred format, but my 57 plate C6 is carrying 4220 not 5570. Think its Mr dealer time. Seems you need to be a PC tech these days to drive an Audi
