The first thing I think everyone should try is another set of disks .... a lot of people are quick to think they need to clean the lenses etc when they get a read error , remember there are plenty of these units in all different types of GM vehicles that use the same player and do not have any problems with dirt or dust on the lenses causing reading errors . It takes a lot of dust on a prism or lens to cause a read error ....

Many have tried all types of cleaning , from disks to canned air etc only to have the problem return .... you know why ? It's not dirt

The disks are easy to copy ( for your own personal use only !)
During the copy process error correction will kick in if there are any errors discovered on the original disks ..

I am running a copy of a copy now .....

Do yourself a favor , if you are getting a read error make a copy first before tearing into the unit , it can't hurt

Dcasole is right, try another disc before anything else. This fixed my problem, thank goodness. But if you get that far into it to remove the dvd player ,considering all the work that took, I would replace the player........seen brand spanking new ones for 77.00.

Hi all,

I think I answered the other disk question in one of my earlier posts.
Although not brand new out of the package.
I have three disks...2 OEM 1 burned...all had the same error message.

Although, certainly making a new burned copy is advisable and will do before replacing the unit.
Seems to require a disk with at least 710 MB free space.

Also note I was not able to remove the Nav player, only could remove the Music player.
Nav player removal, at least in my case, requires more guidance or experience.

Nav still working this AM.

To copy the nav disc, you need a Double Layer DVD+R disc.
Note, I use verbatim brand discs, and end up with no coasters from bad burns. The memorex discs will work as well.
