I'm posting this thread as I'm hoping it may help others. When I initially bought my VW MFD-D Sat Nav and retrofitted it into my Passat B5, I was sad to see that it gave the error "unable to read disc".

My OEM CD player is showing "CD Err" on all 6 discs in the changer. They were skipping incessantly for a few days, now they've stopped working, will work for an hour or so, then go back to the same thing.
I did a search and tried a few things that I gathered from them:
1) Cleaned the inside...

I am currently using the OEM Nav System Version G with the 10 map CD's and was wondering if there was a way to get updated discs with a better display, more updated maps, or even a way to get all the maps consolidated onto 1 disc?
The maps look like they were drawn in crayon by a 5 year old and...
