No its an original but the unit it self would not let me put the cd in any cd the navigation nor a dvd so i dont know what to do its supposed to swallow the cd when you push it in but it does not and i cant even push it in it seems like theres somethin inside blocking it.

Any chance there's already another map disk inside?
Try holding the Eject button down for like 5 minutes & see if you can hear the motor run & maybe eject the disk?

I'm assuming the red LED next to the work "Power" lights up when you open the trunk?
