Unhappy Navigation DVD won't eject

BLUF: My DVD drive won't eject the navigation CD. When I scroll (I-drive) to the navigation screen it says "please insert disc", but the disc is in there

I'm not sure of the remedy and I don't like resorting to the "just take it to the dealer" answer, cause that's the very reason service shops stay in business lol!

2005 645ci

Any suggestions or prior occurrences / fixed now will work.

Sometimes when the cd gets jammed, just wait about 20 minutes and try again. If that fails, turn the car off and turn it on again and try it again. That usually works out for me

You can leave the car sit for 10? minutes and it will shut down, or you can hit eject on the DVD, CD, and press the volume button I think.

I've let the car sit for several hours in the garage, didn't work.


Pressed DVD, CD, Volume button and the same time twice, Navigation disk still didn't eject.


I can hear the disc spinning inside and from what I gather the disc spins constantly so my next question is, by disconnecting the battery to stop all actions and reconnecting, would this possibly fix my issue?

hi,

It could be that the navigation disc is for a later version ie 2006, 07 etc, so the i drive does not recognise it.

To get the disc out (radical) but it worked when my 3 yr old put 4 discs into my PS3 is to get a wooden lolly pop stick & try to drag the disc out while depressing eject - it might damage the disc though or the DVD driver - CAUTION

This is like any othe PC DVD drive, sometimes it get stuck for what ever reason. If rebooting the iDrive did not work for you you may have to do a hard reboot, which means removing power. try disconnecting the battery, wait a few mintues and then reconnect, then try the eject button. If this don't work then you have a mechnical issue which may require some drastic steps such as suggested by jamie645ci if you do not want to go to the dealer.

Hey guys, new to the site. Lots of great information! I am having the same issue above, was it ever resolved?

I hear the dvd in there and after a restart the CCC (via pressing the DVD, CD eject and volume buttons at the same time, it did not spit out the DVD) i notice that under entertainment, the DVD shows a disk in there. (showing un-supported format error) i try pressing eject again and the menu shows that the DVD is no longer in there, but it still is...

I am assuming that it is probably a mechanical issue, but wanted to see what happened with FLIGHT20THREE since the exact same thing is happening to me now.

By the way, the car is a 2004 BMW 645Ci convertible.

This all happened because I was trying to get a new NAV DVD in there... SMDH looks like 2010 is not good, I just burnt a 2009, but cant try it till I get the old one out. Do you guys recommend another NAV DVD? If so can you post the torrent name, or the download page. Thanks again guys for everything you guys do in here

To reset the iDrive, hold in the eject buttons on both the the DVD and CD, and press and hold the volume button all at the same time. If that doesn't do it it may be mechanical.

Good luck.

Good news is that you can find them on eBay reasonably cheap from owners that have upgraded to the CIC system.
Good Luck

Just an update, I left the battery un plug over night and that ejected the dvd.

I am trying a couple of different torrents to get navigation up and going, none found so far that work for my 2004 645ci. Any known torrents let me know. I have been through the posts here and nothing jumped out at me.

After the holidays I plan on cleaning the logic 7 amp like you guys described. See if that gets my rear speakers going. Like you guys mentioned the season was backed up, dealer took care of that.

Last thing, I took it to dealer, it had 3 callbacks. 1) drain 2) battery terminal and 3) replacement of a break line. All this was taken care of free of charge since they were recalls.

Appreciate all the info you guys provide, hoping to do my part too

bewaver,
What the heck are you talking about? Sell a link to a torrent? You are not that dumb are you?

Frankly, you have no business commenting on an old thread where I was helping a member. Actually, it's none of your business but I had an old Nav. disk that I gave him.

I see you are either new to this forum or have very few posts. I would suggest you not begin getting involved by insulting any of the members with comments like these.

This forum is make up up of some great people that help each other. It's that simple. If you want to help and be a member, then post something constructive and helpful.


Always engage brain before putting mouth or keyboard into gear.

Sorry if you felt insulted, but let me tell you this, when it comes to e65, the quality of the helps decreases drastically and that is on every forums. I have little posts because I don't see the point in taking the floor to say "I don't know". If I open my big mouth it's usually about something I know. This is the link to the DVD rip, my last question is: What is your problem?

I have little posts because I don't see the point in taking the floor to say "I don't know". If I open my big mouth it's usually about something I know, if you had an old DVD for Sale your should have published it so anybody could have taken advantage,. Threads that finish in "PM me" are of no use to the community people because there is no solution attached.

This is the link to the DVD rip: google BMW.Navigation.DVD.Road.Map.Europe.BUSINESS.2013.D VD1

No need to be defensive. PM if you still have a problem with this.
