navigation issue

I have tried several different disks for BMW and when I insert it (into the correct player) nothing happens on the navi, it just says 'please insert navigation dvd)... anybody else have this problem?

I'm guessing either its a major issue with the dvd reader or it could hopefully be something minor and a cleaning will fix it. if you're under warranty take it to the dealer, if not then try a dvd player cleaning disc though I doubt it'll help.

Thanks Da, I went to bmw and they tried a couple different disks... They said they'll have to look into it, they think it might be a bad reader. It's under warranty, until august, phew.. That's a little scary though, I can't imagine why it could go bad like that like? I will keep you updated and let you know what they do

Meh, electronics... hell parts in general fail. Doubly so when you've got moving parts involved. Theres a lot that moves in a dvd player so many things can fail.

I just received a new nav disk from the dealer as part of my purchase. I get your same message with the new disk, but it still reads my old one fine.
