Need help with videos in motion/bimmercode issue

I recently coded a friends 5 series with obdx adapter and bimmercode app and it allows me to select videos while driving as well as the activation procedure, yet in motion it won't work and I get this message. The weird thing is I did an identical car a few minutes later same set up and it works fine. Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated

Did you finish the activation sequence in iDrive while you were doing the coding? It's a disclaimer you have to get through.

Yes it makes you hold the controller arrow up until activated. On some cars I seen one more selection after that but on this after that it seems like its finished except it doesnt work

After holding the controller arrow up for a few seconds there must be a menu to select the video in motion. If it didn't show up procedure must be repeated until it does. In some cases it won't show up. Just recover the NBT ECU from it's backup. Reset the unit and lock the car and wait 10-15minutes then try to code it again.

No no no!

I did this at least 5 times in the last 2 days:

- Wait for the coding procedure to finish.
- When NBT Screen finishes restarting click the menu button and stay at the main menu screen.
- Then proceed with the phone app until it tells you to push idrive controller forward.
- Push the idrive controller forward and hold it in this position (don't push any other buttons!!!!)
- You'll have the selection screen on NBT screen.
