Do I have a dice unit?

Today when I was warming my car up, the cd I was listening to stopped playing, I noticed the display said "detached", then changed to "usb". The radio is the stock head unit. When I tried searching for what could be wrong, one of the search results was an old archive of the dice forums.
I bought the car from a dealer second hand, and I was not told of any stereo upgrades. The car is a 2001 330ci.
Can someone point me in the right direction? Do I have a dice unit hidden somewhere? If so where should I look?

You can remove the trim that is around the radio and remove the unit (2 screws) and see what is plugged in behind there. If there is something there unusual post up some pics. If you do have DICE then it can be installed behind the radio or somewhere behind the glovebox.

Thanks for the point in the right direction Solidjake. I dropped the glove box and there it was. To think it was there all this time and I didn't even know. Good thing I didn't buy one myself like I had planned too!

Nice! That is a cool bonus to find with the car Only thing to do now would be update it to the latest firmware at the link below, and jam out.
