How do I play a DVD?

Ok, I put a DVD in the player, it loaded up, I get to the menu to select scenes, play movie, etc. However, I can't figure out how to move to different selections on the DVD menu, or press enter.

All I see are the play, forward, back, buttons etc in the iDrive menu, but play doesnt start the movie. Really didnt think it would be this hard. Thanks for the help!

I have same problem. Plays sometimes and not others. Does disc have to buffer to hard drive? Does my pressing the sound mute button make it work? Very confused and handbook no help.

I can play trailers, and the actual movie all the scene selections show up, but I can't play the movie. The sound is awesome, but not sure why it will not play the movie?

Do you have rear seat entertainment?

If you are trying to do this on the control display, then you must have the handbrake on. On rear seat screens you shouldn't have issues.

I don't have the rear entertainment, and I was parked in the garage fiddling with it.

I have rear entertainment. I coded the speeds and handbrake out so I can watch while driving. Problem seems to be regardless of coding as other owners have made complaints.

I get absolutely nothing when trying to play a DVD on the center console...just an "unknown" next to the disc icon.

I waited a good couple of minutes. In park, e-brake on.

For the price if you get into coding it will pay for the cable and is quiet easy to do! (and FREE)

Agree. I also coded my M5 myself.

In 2013 models, once the DVD has loaded and you are looking at the menu of the disc, instructions appear on the top edge of the screen: press the meny key right above the iDrive controller to get access to the disc menu and then use the controller to move right/ left and press it down (as in depress the controller itself) to select a menu item.

Hope it makes senses.

On "older" cars, instead of pressing the Menu key, the manipulation consists of turning the controller dial right and then depressing it to enter the disc menu, where you can then move right/ left and depress the controller again to select.

In some cars, it takes several minutes for the DVD to start playing the first time you pop one in. Not sure if it is setting the player to the region associated with the DVD or...

If it still doesn't work, eject it, turn off all electronics, turn on, put the disc back in.

Failing that, with the disc in there, press and hold the volume button until iDrive/ screen/ head unit restarts.

That should solve it.

Please let us know.
