Default Possessed CD Player...

Hello Fellow Bonnie Owners;

Have a strange situation with my 2000 SLE that has the GM AM/FM/CD/Tape audio system. Seems like it'* having issues with the CD player either not tracking or something. I played a burned CD (only 6 tracks burned with Nero on my PC) it got to track 6, then took a dump. Spit it out, displays 'CHECK CD', but when I remove the CD completely, it keeps cycling the eject motor, flashing the 'CHECK CD' notice. Other CD'* get the same response - inserted, spit it out, display the message, infinitely cycle the eject mechanism. The only way I get it to stop is to partially place a CD into the slot and leave it there - apparently that must tell it to stop the eject cycle. I discovered the partial insertion "trick" the first time this happened which kept the unit quiet. While driving around the next day with another half-inserted CD it all of a sudden sucked the CD all the way in and began to play it! I figured, OK fluke thing - played commercial CD'* fine, other functions worked, so I put the 6-track home-burned one in (good tunes!) and it crapped out again, same scenario. Seems like it causes something to toss cookies inside the player. Any way I can get it to work again? Scantool time? Any advice or information appreciated.

all that i can think of is that there is something on that cd that is messing with the player, sometimes they are like that, in my opinion u should upgrade the cd player, but thats just me, im sure a bunch of people will jump in now and defend their factory decks, but aftermarket players are better.

Since you mention that it craps out on the 6th (and final?) track, perhaps you never checked the option in Nero to finalize the disc? Make sure the disc gets finalized.

Also, you could try higher quality media (if you're not using the good stuff yet). Sony, Imation, and Fuji are some brands that have always worked well for me. Sometimes the generic stuff (that would include crap like PNY) doesn't have a high enough reflectivity, or the manufacturing tolerances just aren't up to snuff.

Try those first and let us know how it works out. Good luck!
