Question about Pioneer AVIC-X1R CD Player
I've just had my flexi ribbon (free) and, laser replaced (£120) at Northolt Car Radio Repairs because of low output. I got this done as my head unit would not read my copy Sat Nav disks (which I bought off ebay) properly with the Sat Nav not giving me directions on time.
However despite this replacement laser, my unit still can't seem to read the 70vnm copy disks and I don't have any other disks . I find this really strange as my Dad also has an Avic X1R and the disks work fine on that unit !
All my copied audio CD's and MP3 CD's work/ed fine both before and after the laser replacement. Hope someone can help I really could do without spending £200 on original Pioneer disks!
Your laser eye need to be re-align. Nothing wrong with the disc, but after you have someone who really know how to do it and if you keep using the copied discs(any format) your laser eye would be out of wack again. Because copied discs cause the laser eye to work harder specially the copied dvd and navi disc. I service countless number of unit just by re-align the laser not replace it. I do not think your lase ever get replace because Pioneer do not sell jut the laser eye but hte whole disc drive itself. The best solution is to buy a used original version and reset you flashdrive to the factory setting to reload it if you do not want to spend the money for the new original article. You can find the info on how to reset your flashdrive on avic411.com or get back with me if you can not find it. Goodluck.

I have had quite a few problems with copied discs not reading and it is usually the disc's but however in your case if you know the discs work on another unit then perhaps a later version of the discs were tested when the unit was repaired and therefore your earlier discs would not be recognised by the unit, and therefore your unit needs to be reset and i'm afraid this is not something you can do yourself, speak to northolt and see if this is the case.
