    Hi All

    I'm sure this has been covered before but I can't find it.

    I've recently purchased a 2005 645ci, it won't play mp3 discs. Now I know I probably need a software update to the CCC and to enable mp2 play as well.

    So my question is, if I get a copy of DIS & SSS and the correct lead from one of the sources that are about, can I carry out this software update and enable mp3 play with SSS?

    Or do I really have to pay a dealer to do it?


    Thanks all

    Mike

    CCC control unit requires updating with a MOST optical connection do not try updating it with obd lead this kills the ccc unit if unshure take it to the dealers i could not tell you how many forum posts i have read with people crashing the software in ccc unit trying to update it with either the wrong hardware or using sss in vmware which is completely unstable its ok for a bit of coding but updating a ccc can take up to 8 hours so needs a completely stable connection and a stable power supply also the individual components in ccc have to be updated in a specific order or this also will crash the ccc

    This takes 10mins with ncsexpert....suggest its easier than dis.


    You can choose which drives support mp3, eg satnav dvd, cd player or changer, or any mix of them.


    Easy to do.....rude not to!

    Thats a tall order....!

    Use of NCSexpert (or NCSDummy) is easy and well documented.

    What you need to learn is what to change to get the desired results - search Google for "MP3_CCC Aktiv"

    There are many guides online for these apps so Google is your pal (I am being lazy and not re writing what has been written before!).

    Basically, you connect NCSexpert to your car, download the existing config for the correct module (depends on yoru car and options fitted), you then edit in notepad the config file, and upload it back to your car... simples...

    Technically you should update your VO (vehicle order) with +KMP3 too, but it works without doing it.

    I personally have done it on probably 5-6 cars now without any issues.

    Hi David

    Thanks I have read through some of the dummy guides. What I haven't got my head round is some of them talk about creating a profile to be able ro uploaad the modified files and others don't. And worse some say use xxxxxx's profile. Is this necessary?

    Thanks

    Hi there

    Glad you are on the case now....

    If you load Revtor's profile which may be there already - and if not, google will find it. You dont need to create a profile - Revtors is a good one to use and widely available...

    When you load the profile, (and this is all in any of the guides..), then edit it (password will be "repxet") and check that within PSW.PSW make sure from cvt ic checked and also fsw/psw-trace is checked and finally fsw-psw-manipulate with fsw-psw.man is checked.

    Save the profile after clicking on the consistency checker button.

    After that , you are good to go..

    Basically - and I am summarising here.... you select your car, read the module you want to code, and it writes it to fsw_PSW.trc.

    You open that file in notepad, change what you want, then save it as few_psw.man and then return to ncsexpert and write it to the module you read it from.

    I have summarised that - there are a few steps in between that any guide will spell out for you.

    The other good bit of advice is to check with INPA that your cable will connect to the car - so just open INPA and check that you can speak to the car - read anything.... and then close INPA and start NCSexpert. This is obvioulsy a one off test to check your pc an dcable and installation are ok.

    There will be no stopping you when you get going... I hope you have read around and seen what you can code!!!?!?

    One that is easy is to add the speed to the dash obc - where your date/ consumption etc is in.. it just means you can toggle through the stalk button and see road speed.... and its a nice no risk first coding test!

    David

    The what I can and can't code I'm not sure on as the only thing I'd been interested in was the MP3. But I like the speedo in the OBC idea. Is there a list of what can be activated?

    What's in the profile that you need to load up?

    Please do a google as there are several e63 specific guides to both ncsexpert and also the e6x series in general.

    I just did a google and first hit has everything you need....
