Re: boss cd dvd player

Can you hear the drive spin? If you can, buy a cd cleaning kit and try. Sometime the laser len is dirty and the same message occur. Goodluck.

I need to find out how to switch the mode from dvd to cd

There would be no switch for that. If your Car audio / dvd player, really can play both, it will discover what it is playing.
It would play both, CD and DVD. But I'm not sure you also can play Video DVD's. Not telling here, what model player you use, I can't find out either.
Just check the manual, to see what the player can and can't play. Be aware not all players can play disks, you burned yourself. And for DVD you must be sure the player is set to the region code, the disk have.

I have a boss dvd7500 and it no longer loads dvds

You have a bad CD mech. The fix will cost more than most people would be willing to put in to a Boss product, considering the low retail price.

W200 will not play any type disk say "disk error"

The only fix i've found for this (without replacing parts) is to turn the unit off and back on and it will read the cd.

Cd dvd wont play

Many of the older DVD and CD players will not play disks recorded on a computer. This has to do mainly with the laser optical response.

There were several manufactures that manufactured their laser unit with a built in filter that would not allow their player to read non pressed CD disks (disks burned with a home computer).

When buring DVD's or CD's, use the slowest possible speed for the burn to have the highest readablity and least data errors possible for the medium.
