Sorry to ask but was is Torrent? I clicked on the attached file from previous post it downloads a 300Ko file and if I unzip it nothing happens. Maybe isn't compatible with MAC?

The zip file has a torrent link. The link works with an app or software to download the data from other users that have the actual files. Mac has torrent "software". I do everything on my android phone.

I see thanks, I guess that because the downloads on google drive worked for me then it's ok.

-Using a MAC I have downloaded both zip files part 1 and 2 with safari web browser, from there I unzipped them before adding to the formatted FAT32 USB 3.0 key.
-Cleared folders like mentioned and had exact same folders as in the picture
-Plugged USB KEY in my F31 while engine running and nothing pups up, also tried in navigation mode still nothing.
I tried several times and hopeless LOL.
I'm not familiar with both MAC (OSX) or the F31.

1. Have you deleted the hidden files on the USB drive?

2. Do you have multiple USB ports in your car? Have you tried both?

Links that might help you.

For E-sys you donít need it to be activated with a token, thatís only used for coding, to generate the FCS file I just used E-sys, NOT E-sys Launcher like the first post says, this worked for me.

You must use the provide software to format the drive as FAT32, exFAT32 does not work.

I tried to move the zip file in to the FAT32 formatted 128gb stick and had an error Ďfile too largeí So had to unzip the files first and then move them over.

During the update the car would go into sleep mode and the update would stop, so I ran the engine for 45min-1hr for the update to complete,
I suspect you can drive around while its updating, but you just canít use the navi
Thanks for the info.

1. Edited 1st post & removed E-Sys Launcher.

2. FAT32 will not accept a file larger than 4GB.

3. You can buckle the driver side seatbelt. I always have a battery charger connected during map updates or coding. Don't recall the iDrive going to sleep.

1. Have you deleted the hidden files on the USB drive? YES only by installing it in my windows laptop I was able to see those files and delete them manually. Basically I just bought a new USB key, had it formatted FAT32 first with my MAC, and second alternative my windows laptop from there I would download map files from my MAC to the key and either way my car wouldn't recognize the update. So I followed your suggestions for hidden files on MAC which I thank you again but there where no hidden files showing up. After all I plugged the USB key in my laptop again to see files and wow I was finally able to see those hidden files which my MAC created by duplicating the map files when I had them downloaded. I'm sure theres a way with MAC somehow to not run into this problem, seems to be originally from the MAC download to the USB key. Like a mentioned USB key is new and had it formatted several times LOL.

2. Do you have multiple USB ports in your car? NOT in my F31 Have you tried both?

this is correct, it might have been exFAT32, I remember Windows 7 reported it as FAT32...maybe mixed this up
