I have a problem with my Grom device following a software update to the latest version (provided by Grom support to try and resolve another issue)

I have an E46 3 Series with 16:9 screen.

Since the upgrade I cannot play the contents of folder 6. If I press any of the buttons 1-5 I can play those folders, but pressing 6 brings up a menu I havent seen before which has "Source USB", "Disc Browse" "Now Playing" "Scan IS: Off" etc. I don't appear to be able to select disc 6 from this menu either, and I can exit it by selecting "back".

I have reset the device by unplugging it, and have tried changing source a few times, but I just cannot get button 6 to do anything but bring up this menu!

Can anybody help?

I have found the config editor on the GROM website which says the following:

m 1 Allow to turn off graphical (M)enu on 16:9 radios. Useful when autodetect is not properly working and prevent from selecting DISK 6. 0- off, 1- on when Navi is detected

I have tired 0, and this disables the menu, but button 6 still will not play folder 6, it just displays disc 1 when I press it, and the music glitches. All other disks are fine.

I have tried another USB stick with another 6 folders, same result.

THe display will never show CDC 6.

Help !

In order to select disks 6-10 go to Disc Browse and scroll through disks you need.
For 16:9 we do not support Disc 6 direct access. Only through menu.
Let me know if more issue you find.

Thanks for your help. If direct access to folder 6 isnt supported then would the config file option to disable the 16:9 menu not re-instate it? I have applied that, and now dont get the menu, but still cannot get the screen to display CDC 6.

This did work until I changed the firmware a couple of days ago, definitley, its the way I have always used this device. Can anybody tell me what specific firmware I need to go back to? I have tried most and I still cannot use button 6, I'd just like it back the way it was before the weekend when I updated firmware!

Hi,

i have the problem, the menu (when pressed 6) is only displayed about 1 second, so i can not change into random mode or so.

Normally i can only see:

P1: CD 1
P2: CD 2
...

When i press 6 sometimes the names of my folders on the usb-stick are displayed for a part of a second.

Can anyone tell what i should do, to get the menu?

The option m= 1 or m= 0 in the config does not help me.

I have a E46 MK IV 16:9.

What type of BMW is the best for a first car? I like a 3 series. And the 325i is that a perfect one? Also for under 10k...I wont be racing so a casual driver. If there's anything else let me know.
