Cd player malfunction

I have a 1999 gmc sierra that the cd player won't play my homemade cd's. I replaced the original player with one from a wrecked truck and get the same result. When I put one of my burnt cd's in it kicks it back out and says err. I sometime have to put my regular cd's in the player several times to get them to play. When it plays it sounds fine. I'd appreciate any help I can get on this situation. Thanks, Darren.

These units will not recognize certain media formats, notably, if you are burning your CD's with files in AAC, WMA, or MP3 format. I would highly recommend replacing the factory head unit with one that is aftermarket. You can do so with units that start around $100. The bonus is that you can get something that is iPod or MP3 player ready and never have to look at a CD again!

Won't play recorded cd's


Try a different brand of recordable CD. Some players are sensitive to the color of the disc itself. This is usually only with older players, but I have seen this as a problem in the past.

I have a 2001 Honda Crv, the cd player keeps ejecting CDs before it has the chance to load them. The radio works fine, and I gave tried burnt and original disc CDs. Can anyone suggest a solution?


Are these CDs that you burned yourself? Older CD players won't recognize the audio file format of this kind of recording, only the established file format that typical retail CDs have used for years. In recent years, CD players have been developed to recognize more file types than just the old format; but with an older player like you have in your car, it wouldn't recognize what you were trying to play, as if you put a DVD in. It balks, and spits it out. You can burn CDs with the correct file format, you just need the appropriate software or file translator.

I have a factory bmw e46 blaupunkt cd player that neds a new deck where can i get one?


The cars manufacturer original stereos once become malfunt would require contacting an auto electrician dealership that may have several restoration methods to revive the condition. Once evaluated would decide to repair the fault where options of replacing with an alternate compartment structures are mandible. Local BMW dealerships that have technical departments would be most appropriate mean of resolving the conditions. Alternately, contact auto electronic technician would evaluate to determine the most compatible compartments and processes required to achieve repairs. Usually a malfunction part is replaced with new functioning compartments compatible with the manufacturers default. Unless malfunction parts were unattainable would an entire structure of kits most suitable for the restoration be means to consider.

Cal err


cal error is not a big deal it is just a programming adjustment, it is not the cause of the cd fault. GM radios have a history of cd drive failures. we fix them alot. if you buy another used radio then you will need to reprogram it to work with your truck. or getting it fixed will not need to get programmed.

I have a 1999 dodge neon and i don't think it is playing burned CD's. do you think it was maybe a low quality CD?? or are those CD Players not supposed to from that year?? I really need to know because if...


Some players won't play CD's that are not "finalized" or are the "Music CD" type. Try burning CD's that are "Music CD's" They cost more and are harder to find. If those work, then it is a problem with the feeble attempts at copy protection that was done years ago. No solution then other than to use Music CD's when copying and burning.
