software update not recognized

I have downloaded an updated .bin file however file is not being recognized.

Flash drive has been formatted clean (even non quick route) and is FAT32 and still an issue.

Any ideas?

Is there a USB input in the glove box? I know in my X5M I had to plug it in there to perform an update. The center console USB was strictly for charging and media for some reason...

There is a usb slot in the center arm rest and where the wireless phone charger rests.
I tried both but still the same message that usb is not recognized.

An update.
My original flash drive was 1gb so I wanted to see if using a lower capacity drive would work. I vaguely recall from my computing days that this may be an issue.
Installed the bin file on a 256 and 512 mg drive and this time instead of the message that the media is not recognized, i received a 'searching' message.
Unfortunately this is as far as it goes even after several minutes. Then the original message pops back up.

I think I will give up. May be I have the updated file already installed. Who knows

Good thinking though - it sounds logical.

Try putting media file (eg. *.flac) on flash drive and see if car reads it.

Thanks for the suggestion. Media file reads and plays fine.

Ok. In that case, I am assuming flash drive is formatted fine.

The download file was labeled UPD09042.bin and according to the pdf file the update files are:
TB 001.062.032
MB 001.062.040
HB 001.062.032

My car currently has:
TB 006.032.012
MB 006.032.012

So the update also failed. Almaretto's comment makes sense to me.

Newest I found is 006.074.002. This is not available via USB update; it requires flash programming.

So that's what happened to me today due to error message for pedestrian warning, adaptive cruise and one other thing... Dealership told me it's an easy fix just an update to the safety features...

Uhmmm, my car is twice as loud as before and now my pops sound like gun shots... Steering in sport+ is much stiffer than before, regular sport now feels like the sport+ before software update and the car is very sensitive in sport+ throttle just going from stop sign/light...
