BMW has issued a Technical Service Bulletic (TSB #SI-B65-08-04) that addresses this issue. Unfortunately, the bulletin calls for the replacement of the radio itself.

I would take it to the dealership to be sure that the symptoms of the problem that you're experiencing match what's stated on the TSB. Have them verify the problem.
