CD error

When I got my car in 2015, it played CDs, either regular or MP3. Last season, I started getting CD CHECK errors with MP3 CDs but didn't bother checking a regular CD. This year, it won't play anything. I found lots of threads about this but nothing about a fix other than replacing the unit which I won't do because it's not that important. However, if there is a fix that I missed or some troubleshooting ideas and someone remembers them, please let me know. (I have no music on my phone and don't plan to add any, neanderthal that I am!)

Might just be road fim/buildup on the head. Have you tried one of those CD cleaner discs?I had a similar issue on a (non-BMW) car a few years ago, and that seemed to fix it. Worth a try.
