The TOP slot is a single load slot which should be occupied by your nav disk if you have one. If you want to put a CD in to play (or MP3 CD, or DVD-A), you must press the little button to the left of the LOWER slot that looks like a bunch of CDs stacked on top of eachother. You will then hear the mechanism prepare itself to accept the first CD (it is a 6 cd changer) and when it is ready it will say "INSERT DISC" or some such thing and you insert your first disc. Once it is successfully loaded, you repeat this process for as many disks as you have, up to 5 more times.

when i press the little button that looks like a bunch of disks, nothing happens?
Just in case the previous owner left discs in it, hit the eject button and see if anything happens. If nothing happens when you press eject OR the little stack of discs, something is wrong with the mechanism.

UPDATE...I found a GM service bulliten for this online...it states that the CD/DVD function can "lock out" if a low battery charge occurs at some point but will still allow the function of the AM,FM,NAV,XM. It tells the technician not to replace the radio and to pull the 15 amp fuse under the hood for 10 minutes to allow the radio to cycle power. I did it this morning and it worked! It also states that a radio software update may be necessary.

Glad you got it fixed.
