2006 CTS Nav DVD won't play

Hi guys,

I just purchased my first Cadillac, a 2006 CTS with all the trimmings.

I've been fiddling and I decided to try the DVD and was dissapointed that it simply doesn't work. I have the Bose sound system and the nav unit to go with it and when I insert a normal, retail (movie) DVD into the nav/dvd slot I get the message

"This type of disc can not be played"

If I insert an alternate region DVD, I get the correct "Region not correct" message so it is reading correctly.

Also, the nav dvd and nav function correctly.

Am I doing something stupid, or is something up with the unit?

Thanks guys!

Nobody has any idea? :hmm:
How do you perform an update? Through an update DVD or something?

I've tried lens cleaner etc, with no joy.
It's not the region code.

I explained I tried both regions, one simply said "Cannot play this type of Disc" the other said "Incorrect Region".

The region was an American disc, the type of disc error was my local region.
erik soelseth reference was correct!


In order to playback DVDs in the EU region on this particular nav unit, the DVD must be encoded in the NTSC resolution but in the UK PAL region or Region Free.

Tested and confirmed with 3 NTSC DVDs:
  • NTSC Retail DVD (Region Free) - Worked.
  • NTSC Burnt DVD (Region Free) - Worked.
  • NTSC Burnt DVD (UK Region) - Worked.
  • PAL Retail DVD (Region Free) - Did Not Work.
