replacement CD changer problem

The CD changer in my glovebox decided it was time to die.
I have managed to obtain a replacement which when plugged in seemed to work. It loaded disks and ejected disks - so far so good.
Unfortunately when trying to play the disk the problem became apparent. The disk starts to play, the time on the display moves normally but - 1st second music, 2nd second silence, 3rd second music 4th second silence . . and so on.
Can anyone tell me, is this because the player needs coding to the vehicle or is the replacement player also faulty?

Thanks for the link.
Will update again once I have visited the guy with gear to remove the protection.

Final update:
Specialist computer app needed and access to German database so ----
After a long time trying to get my local Audi dealer interested in anything that did not involve selling me a bright shiny new Audi, they finally said that they could do it, but it might not work as the CD changer came from a different model (A8) and had a different mod state, but would be willing to try and would charge £60 + vat regardless. They also could not give me a date which would still have allowed me to return to vendor within 30 days.
So I gave up!
Returned to vendor and bought a fiber optic loop adapter to keep the system working - no longer have CD changer, but do have DAB, LW, MW and VHF radio, so still some music if I feel like it.
