    It will only work if you turn power switch off then back on again. This will last for maybe 5 mins and then the bloody (sorry) beeping goes off. I'm sure its some kind of warning but i don't know what for.

    not sure what the beeps mean, is this a single slot cd player, or a changer in the boot/dash ?

    very strange, actually disconnect the CD player and see if it does it then.
    If it still does, i dont think its the changer.
    It the beeps go away, take discs out of the cartridge, and try again.
    Then load like 1 CD at a time and see what happens

    the exact same thing is happeing on my girlfrield 00 VW. loud beep, scares the sh*t out of you, then you have to switch the radio off and on again. have noticed that it is happening more frequently lately and the radio doe not always work when you switch it back on again

    found source of problem. its to do with the traffic info on th radio. if you've set it to receive traffic updates and the signal is weak it'll beep to warn you that your not gonna get the info. It helps if you atually bother to read the radio manual!!! DOH!!! Thanks to olly, georgie and cath.
