Cannot update Idrive software on 2013 528XI

Hello all
Apologies if this was already discussed in any other threads.
I own a 2013 BMW 528XI and i cannot udpate the idrive software using the USB stick. I used the

1) USB drive with FAT 32 formating with no other media files.
2) Plugged in to the center console USB connector.
3) My VIN number provided me with software update when i checked the bmw official website.
4) Tried different USB sticks.

My friend has a similar vehicle and encounters the same issue.

Any suggestions/corrections appreciated

IIRC, the file has to be in the root directory and can't be located in a folder? Also, idrive is very slow to index and find files. I would suggest making sure there are no other files on the USB and use as small of a USB as you can find.

I did try to put the bin file alone separately without any other media files. Also the bin is placed at root level of USB stick. Not sure what's the problem though. I have also extracted the bin file and placed all the extracted files but still no luck ...
