Re: play back

Hello I have the D1 and it can not play DVD's in the DVD Rom slot. It is only for use with the DVD Navigation Discs. To watch DVD's on the AVIC-D1 you need to get the Pioneer DVD Player or DVD Changer and connect it through the IP Bus and AV Bus to control it from the head unit. The other way to watch DVD's on the D1 is to buy any automotive DVD Player, for example Boss, Lanzar, etc. or use a PS2, PS3, or any other Video Game System that plays DVD's and connect it through the RCA AV Video and Audio inputs. I believe that the AVIC-D3 has the ability to play DVD's from the unit. It can also can play DVIX DVD's. Hope this helps.

My sony xav-a1 manual will not read dvds or cds, it just ejects them back out. What could be the problem?

a problem could possibly be the area code on the dvd player maybe different to the area code on the cd's and dvd's, just like how you can't play australian games on an american ps3

It wont play dvds and is reading error 12

The only thing you can try is to use a Laser lens cleaner that uses fluid and run it thru a few times. Any retail store sells them now and cost under $20. If that does not work, it needs to be serviced. Which means a transport replacement, they do not re-align lenses. Repair cost between 125-175 Hope this helps

Dvd player

Sorry to let you know, but the AVIC D1 does not play movie DVDs. It only has a DVD ROM drive that reads Data DVDs, in other words the navigation DVDs. You will have to add your own DVD Player or a Pioneer DVD Changer to be able to watch movies with the AVIC D1.

I would like to know this dvd player can play in europe

I couldn't find any info on this players region code, but most DVD stores carry DVDs from all regions, and many players today can play DVDs of any region. To be sure call the local DVD store that you like and ask them what region DVDs they have. Hope I helped ;]
