Is it possible to play dvd movies by using the existing dvd-rom drive on the RNS-E? Would it make any difference whether you have a US version or EU version?

The official answer is NO but there rumors on German boards that there will be a software update coming out which would allow that.

Personally I think it's unlikely that Audi will offer this because the A4/A3 are not family cars and the A6/A8 use a different system. If the upcoming Q5 is using the same RNS-E then there might be an update because the Qs are more likely to have rear seat passengers.

Again, just speculation...

You can play Audio CDs as well as MP3 CDs if you remove the Navi DVD. You cannot play MP3 DVDs nor Movie DVDs.

The is no standard for MP3 on DVD like there is for MP3 on CD. It looks like reading a DVD is not the same as reading a CD (at least for non-PC devices).

Will the CD Changer play MP3 CDs?

Will a B6 S4 Cabriolet w/ RNS-E and CD Changer play MP3 CDs in the changer, while the DVD NAV is working?

No MP3 CDs in the changer, just plain old audio CDs...
