This happened to me once but it fixed itself after I shut the car down and started it back up after awhile.

I had this happen and it never worked it's way out. I had to have dealership warranty replace the entire disc unit and send the unit back to Alpine to get my disc's back. Still haven't seen them and it's been months!

Interesting that it fixed itself. I've never had a problem with the CD changer, but on two different occasions now my XM has gone crazy. I'll be listening to something and suddenly there is a burst of static, then it alternates static/silence for ever even though it still shows the station and program or song that is supposed to be playing. It's not a reception problem, as soon as I turned the car off and back on it "fixes" itself. However turning the radio on/off without turning the car off did nothing, so I guess the problem is bad enough that it requires a hard reboot.

Mine: 2008 Accord EX-L V6 Sedan, Alabaster Silver Metallic / Black
Hers: 2006 CR-V SE, Pewter Pearl / Black

Your best bet is to find a replacement unit on eBay. The CD Changer mechanism from Honda is $482, or $1,273 to replace the entire head unit. The in-dash CD stackers fail quite often.

Another option is to get the External 8-CD Changer, which uses a Magazine instead. Those are more reliable than the stacker changers. I am curious as to why they think CD-R's cause problems. I can understand the obvious: if people use stick-on labels and they begin to peel off, it will jam the mechanism. But how would a CD-R with no label cause problems?

My current Nav head unit gives a CD Error on insert. When you turn off the car and start it up again, you hear the CD load properly, then it plays fine. I don't dare try to insert more than one CD.
