Do the CDs play anywhere else?

Cuz mine plays fine. I have the base radio, no cd changer.

Did you select 'finalize cd' when you burnt it?

yeah they play everywhere else. i have the cd changer. the first track or two will play fine, but the rest of the cd will start skipping. ? i'm thinking maybe it might just be musicmatch. i downloaded the update, and i think that might be the problem. ?

:tisk: Burnt CDs wouldn't play on my wife's '03 with changer. I recently upgraded to an '05 DVD NAV with CD changer. As soon as I can find a burnt CD, I'll try it.

ok, mine has done the same thing about 2 weeks ago. i reburnt the CD, still no dice. it did the exact thing, played first few tracks or so then skipped like mad. i have the bose 6-disc.

i don't accept defeat well, so i ran my head cleaner in the unit, seemed to help but it still did it. i would still recommend that.

now, next thing i would do (since you know the CD works elsewhere) is burn it from a different burner. luckily my father's PC has a quality burner so i just transferred the files. well, after that, the CD worked fine in my car, no skip. i attributed it to a CD burner that probably needs to be replaced. i don't think it was laying the tracks properly on the disc. weird thing is, the CD's i burn work everywhere else.

case in point: i think the cadillac bose is VERY tempramental, since my poineer played EVERYTHING perfect i am kinda spoiled.

i'd like to upgrade to the nav next year...

Don't burn it at full speed, this happens with my wives Vue, if I burn the disks at say 4x or 8 times it will play just fine.

:) I am one of many on this forum to upgrade to the DVD NAV. Total cost for the DVD NAV ($1275.00) (off eBay) new DVD MAP disc ($195.00) from Zenrin.com, and factory GPS antenna from GM-Parts.com about $55, total around $1525.00. Check www.cadillacfaq.com for detailed how-to-do instructions. And yes, it's worth it.

Same exact experience for me. One or two normal playing tracks, then skips like crazy on my Bose non-nav. I switched from making the discs on my cheap laptop to my decent desktop. No problems now.
