If Disc Read Error appears on the display and/or the CD/DVD comes out, it could be for one of the following reasons:

  • If a CD was inserted with an invalid or unknown format.
  • If a DVD is not from a correct region.
  • It is very hot. When the temperature returns to normal, the CD should play.
  • You are driving on a very rough road. When the road becomes smoother, the CD/DVD should play.
  • The CD/DVD is dirty, scratched, wet, or upside down.
  • The air is very humid. If so, wait about an hour and try again.
  • There may have been a problem while burning the CD/DVD.
  • The label may be caught in the CD/DVD player.

If the CD/DVD is not playing correctly, for any other reason, try a known good CD/DVD.

If any error occurs repeatedly or if an error cannot be corrected, contact your dealer.
