I have alpine stereo's in all my vehicles and i have had this problem. if you run a 10-14 gauge constant wire from the stereo directly to the battery the stereo will not shut down in protection mode. it is not the cd it is the stereo going into protection mode because of lack of current not voltage. i hope this helps after i did this i could play the stereo as loud as it can go until my battery died

Re: i love loud music
SORRY TO TELL YOU THIS BUT; There is a safety feature in all cd players that while playing a cd at extreme levels, it shuts off so you don't burn out the player, altenator, or speakers. It sucks and it's weir that it only works with cd's, but that's what it is. You'll have to get an amp

it will read burnt cds, the only thing is that it will not play .mp3 format songs, if you can somehow change the format to something else it should work just fine. i had a friend who's car had the same problem and switching the file extension from .mp3 to something else like .mpeg or something else should work. the cd player in a 98 grand cherokee is older and does not have .mp3 play back on it so it cannot read .mp3 format files. that's the only reason it doesnot register. try different audi files out and it should work. give it a try. i hope that helps out some.
I hav an 03 and it exhibited the same problems; on off on off nothing works. I discovered this repair 2 days ago and it works perfectly and I am one happy camper.
1. Start by pulling the main fuse for the radio (if you already haven't)
2. Re insert the fuse and turn the radio on (nevermind the on off sequence). Insert a music CD, it will take one.
3. Pull the fuse again, count to five and re insert fuse.
4. When the CD starts to play, use the menus to get down to the factory default settings and ask it to reset to factory.
5. And you are now working again. Or you should be. It basically is a processor and it operates just like your home PC whn it needs a reload. It searchs to the default drive which is the CD player.
I have the same problem with my sometimes. Sometimes it is working fine and when I turn the car back on, it won't go at all. On the back of the head unit, there is a reset button. Press the reset button then press the power button and it should work.
I had a simular problem ,the only thing you might try is a cd cleaner disk that has a little brush on it. might be a dust build up on the optical eye.
or it just worn out. the optical eye in my opion is sensitive and hitting big bumps with a cd playing might throw it out of whack...they can make like a little bluetooth or cartridge that holds all of any music cd or 30 cds....it would be pure electronics...but i guess it compares to oil co. that wont put out the electric car..jobs and money is what its about.
you get my point.
