    You can buy a lens cleaner CD, or you can strip it down and stick in a cotton bud with some lighter fluid on it.
    Is it breaking up or skipping?

    Sorry I was thinking of an autochanger, when talking about taking it apart. Yes the lens cleaner is as you describe. Never tried one on a HU though. Does it play OK on original CD's (not CDR's)? I had some issues when I changed my CDR brand, used to use TDK (designed for music) then went for a cheaper generic brand. All the issues I've experienced have been CD's not reading at all, rather than skipping or breaking up, but I guess an MP3 player won't be as fussy as it is designed to be used with CDR's. I'd try the cleaner, can't hurt.
