CD player doesn't read disc


Asked by Aug 24, 2013 at 12:53 PM about the 2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Sonata with a Mach DSP Audio System, 6 CD changer and however I burn a disc, the cd player says its "Unreadable".  I have converted my music to wave and then burned as an audio disc and, I, also, have converted to MP3 and burned a disc, with the same result.  Can anyone help?  My only other thought was to load the disc back into the computer and open it thru Windows Media Player and try again to load in the car player.

take a shopvac with the smallest suction tool and vacuum the slot for the CD...this gets the contaminants out of the moving parts~

Try burning your disc as an MP3 or WMP most players will one or the other properly.

Forgot to mention, slow your burn rate down to medium speed

Thank you. I tried to load a purchased cd, still no luck. I'll re-attempt to burn.

drat...that solution worked on my junkyard '96 CD player~

I'd take a look at the system ground...specifically the Black cable...where it attaches to the rest of the car is always a problem area as to start the engine, the starter draws enough amperage to where the 12V connection actually welds itself...okay for a while but this layer of corrosion creates all manner of complications....your CD player operating at "brown-out" amperage not solid 12 Volt Power may be the key to the whole puzzle...wirebrush the 1/0awg cable where it attaches to ground...wirebrush the ground and put them back together~

Get a NEW battery...the newer tin/antimony alloy (NO LEAD) batteries will last about five years before they will stop taking a charge...2006 time for a new battery quite a while ago and while may start the car would never survive the destructive "load test" where the battery must endure a dead short of three seconds and still be able to start the car and get recharged immediately----runnin' on fumes, my man~


It is possible that the laser light no longer functions, not unheard of, also the CD drive motor could have quit.

Could be, I've converted to MP3 then burned as audio thru Windows Media Player. Converted to WMA burned as audio the WMP still no luck.
