Problem with CD player - 1999 BMW 323iS (E36)

I bought a 6 -CD magazine to fit in the cd changer installed in the trunk. Loaded the CD's in the magazine, on the stereo clicked the option for Tape/CD it's showing the CD no's(means it detecting the CD's in the magazine) but no output i.e not playing anything(not able to hear anything).

Please let me know what should i look for.

Thanks.

Well what i know is that magazine fits properly in the cd magazine and when i push the magazine in the cd changer it loaded all the CD's 1 by 1 and after loading 6 it again came back to 1st and also on stereo if i click 5 the 5th is getting loaded in the changer.

I also have a CD player in the trunk. First time I tried to use it..same thing happened. I loaded the CD incorrectly in the mag. Try flipping the CD's.

Should i load a lens cleaner cd in the magazine(how long you suggest to run the lens cleaner) or should i pull off the cd changer and clean the lens with any good lens cleaner solution. How difficult is to pull off the cd changer and clean the lens ??

Talking

be easy on yourself... just use the lens cleaner, let it run for a minute or two and u r done... (make sure the cleaner is on the correct side, ok...)

and you'll know when it is done cleaning bcz it will start playing music... or video as the case may be

I bought the Philips cd lens cleaner, loaded the cleaner in the cd magazine,ON the stereo the lens cleaner started working(able to hear the intro data stored in lens cleaner cd) but it worked only for couple of seconds and after that no voice cd got kind of dead and the same is happening up for other CD's i loaded in the changer(able to play the song for couple of seconds , after that no voice).
Please advice me what's going on over here.
