If anyone knows how to eject a CD that appears to be not recognized, please let me know. I read the manual and it says to hold it 5 seconds to force it out. I have the NAV system and this just opens the front screen as if to load the NAV DVD. Holding the eject button longer does nothing other than make a beaping sound.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Kevin

I've had sucess with turning off the car, removing the key, opening the driver's door and pressing the eject button. A disc will load and unload without the key in place and the radio off.

Just like to add a "me too" on this .. I put in a mp3 cd with perhaps too many folders (itunes created) and it wont eject. I will have to try the fuse trick.

Some combination of the above worked for me .. didnt have to pull the fuse.
Now to figure out what was wrong with the CD...

It was an itunes mp3 cd with perhaps too many folders - I think thats what caused it to mess up. I had created another mp3 cd with just 1 folder and < 100 songs and it seems to be working just fine. The itunes burned cd with 695mb of songs and its own named folder methods appears to have caused the nav player grief.

MP3/WMA Format
If you burn your own MP3/WMA disc on a personal computer:
• Make sure the MP3/WMA files are recorded on a CD-R or CD-RW disc.
• Do not mix standard audio and MP3/WMA files on one disc.
The CD player is able to read and play a maximum of 50 folders[/color], 15 playlists, and a combined total of 512 folders and files[/color].• Create a folder structure that makes it easy to find songs while driving. Organize songs by albums using one folder for each album. Each folder or album should contain 18 songs or less[/color].
• Avoid subfolders. The system can support up to eight subfolders deep, however, keep the total number of folders to a minimum in order to reduce the complexity and confusion in trying to locate a particular folder during playback.
• Make sure playlists have a .mp3 or .wpl extension (other file extensions might not work).
• Minimize the length of the file, folder, or playlist names. Long file, folder, or playlist names, or a combination of a large number of files and folders, or playlists can cause the player to be unable to play up to the maximum number of files, folders, playlists, or sessions. If you wish to play a large number of files,
folders, playlists or sessions, minimize the length of the file, folder, or playlist name. Long names also take up more space on the display, potentially getting cut off.
• Finalize the audio disc before you burn it. Trying to add music to an existing disc might cause the disc not to function in the player.
