    RNS-E - Am I just Unlucky?

    Having upgraded my single Din Concert stereo to RNS-E I have encountered a few problems along the way. First the DVD drive was not ejecting and would not read the nav-disc - I purchased a new DVD drive and after fitting this thought all was great until when I try to program destination the unit stalls and then says disc unreadable.
    The 2007 nav disc I purchased does have a couple of scratches but I have had it cleaned and polished, does anyone know what the problem could be? Disc, unit, operator error ?

    PS If anyone wants help in changing to RNS-E or changing the drive let me know.

    W7, sorry to hear of your problems. Just a few suggestions: When you insert disc, and/or when you try to program a destination, can you hear the disc spin-up? It will be very quiet, so choose a quiet time. If you cannot hear anything, it could just be the drive motor, or more likely, a motor connector. I am afraid, you may have to take out the drive again. Check all connectors for bent/pushed-back pins. Not familiar with this DVD drive, but I assume it is a standard PC drive. If so, one could test it in a PC. Before doing any of this, do try just one more DVD disk. The RNS-E is very sensitive to DVD media, so you never know if it will read a particular disk or not. Scratches on a disk are not often a major problem. Most problems come from cheap/nasty media, or poor copying. Good luck mate.

    Thanks for that. As it took me ages to change the drive I think I will try another disc before messing with it again as I might do more damage than good.

    Hi yes original discs. Scuffed the new one as I tried to put it in when the old one wouldn't eject and scratched the other one removing it from the faulty DVD drive.
