I haven't played a dvd in my 06 STS yet (only had it a few months) but aren't the DVD drive and the CD changer completely different? I guess if they are not, maybe someone will clue me in. If you are putting CDs in the DVD drive I would imagine you might get weird results.

Sorry that I am probably doing nothing to answer/solve your problem but your post confused me so I guess I am offering or requesting clarification.

No, the upper DVD drive is for the map disc. The lower slot can take both CD's and DVD's.

Hello,
I write from the lower slot for DVD and CD as a 6 changer...
All DVDs works fine but if I want to play CDs stop at 0 till 20 sec.

I dont know why ?

Hello,
New original CD...
I've testing many original CDs... Nothing.
I don't know why because all DVDs are running great.

The layer of plastic is thicker on a CD than on a DVD. The laser is probably beginning to fail. Probably need to replace the head unit.

Hello,
OK, thanks for these answer...
Can I buy the changer only or must I buy the complete Navigation unit ?

I've seen that the CD/DVD changer are an DIN format and connect to the unit with one flat plastic cable.

Are the laser failed or dirty ?
I think a failed laser can not read DVDs ?
Can I install a Europe Unit in the US model STS or must I install the US version ? Because I live in Europe and we have other radio frequence as the US frequence.
Is it the same connectors in US and EU ?
Thanks

PS: Can I repair the player ?

Sorry, I don't know the answers to most of your questions. I'm pretty sure that with a failed laser the player would not read any discs. I also don't see why the connectors would be any different between US and export model cars.

Have you ever fixed a disk player?
