Skindiver is an unknown quantity at this point
Hi.

Driving along yesterday in my 2000 M coupe', ( with the standard BMW sound setup ) when i changed the CD playing but received a "CD Error" message on the head. It refused to play any further tho the radio still worked. Then i tried to remove the CD cartridge and it refused to eject it.

I had a similar problem with a JVC in a honda once and removing the battery terminal extinguished the "reset' message on the head and it started working again.

I tried the battery terminal trick with the BMW but all that happened is that the message changed from CD error to ' NO Discs '.

What can i do ? The local sound shop says its because i played a copied disc and burned out, wore out, or jammed the laser ?
If so, fine but then why wont it spit the cartridge out. ?

There seem to be two factory models of (6) cd changer A and B. One has a cover that flaps down and has a reset button close to the eject button but mine has a sideways manual sliding cover with no reset button.

Thanks for any advice
Skindiver.

universal trick for ejecting a CD mag: take a credit card, and "pop" it underneath the mag, like you are swiping the card at a gas pump. 90% of the time that will eject the mag. If it doesn't you have a CD stuck halfway in and halfway out. if that is the case, you need to open the changer cover, and manuual rotate the gears to slide it back into place.
