    About 1 month ago my disk began to sound funny and now the drive cannot read the the disk. I had never removed the disk prior to this occurring and it does not appear to be dirty or scratched.

    Has anyone else had a problem with the cd drive not reading a disk?

    I am out of warranty...any one else had a similar problem?

    Thanks
  • I have all the others that I have never/will never use, but need the Southwest, which is where I live.

    Wont play music cd, put nav cd in and display constantly resets. Cleaning CD does not help. How do I remove the unit and try to look at the cd mechanism? :mad:

    First time post:

    I bought a used 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid (FEH), 78,000 odometer. So far, everything works great (2days ownership), however my Navigation CD used for my area (Map 1) failed to work. I get a load screen for about a minute or so, and then the unit would reset the whole radio.

    So, I popped in the Map 2 CD , loaded up fine, got some GPS functions, to my relief: if the unit is okay, then Map 1 CD must be damaged. Visual inspection of the Map1 CD has a one inch scratch (going with the circle) and what I thought, a small smudge that is permanently etched (close to the end).

    I read on the web that some people can make back-up copies of their CDs to protect the original CD they own, thus preserving vital GPS functions for the FEH. I tried to copy Map1 CD using Nero (V 7.11) but I had no luck. It couldn't recognize sectors, kinda went through a loop. see below for my computer spec:

    Intel Quad core 750
    4gb Ram
    Windows XP Pro
    Sony dvd/cd Burner

    I Googled "CD repair" and I downloaded a free program: "CD Recovery Toolbox" http://www.oemailrecovery.com/cd_recovery.html

    "...use it to restore information lost as a result of some mechanical damage of the disk (scratches, chips, different spots on the surface) or as a result of incorrect recording. Thus, the program can recover data that was considered lost..."

    After I installed the program, a couple clicks later (I enabled the ALL check-box) the program started to scan my Map 1 CD. It scanned pretty fast until it hit the 24mb (550 mb total) mark, then the program must have encountered the damaged area because it crept up very slowly. :sick:

    It took a long time to scan my Map 1 CD, I say about 30 hours total. Thank goodness I own a quad core, so I can multitask while the program scanned in the background, it bogged down my computer (took under a minute to open my web, and a few minutes to open more intensive programs-but all worked with no problems).

    I did encounter one major problem, my automatic windows update must have restarted my computer while I slept, :mad: when I checked my computer in the morning, it looked refresh with no programs running. I opened the folder where the program was saving my CD, and it was incomplete(only 4 folders out of 9). I noted the name of the last file inside the last folder that the program worked on, then I restart the process again. I checked "ALL" again, crossed my fingers that it would resume from the last file, but it didn't. :(

    Before the new process started, I was prompt to replace the older files saved in my folder, I click the "No" button (not the "No To All" button) until I got to the last file that I noted earlier, then I clicked the "Saved to All" button.

    I ate some breakfast, then I checked my computer, and the whole process had finished. :surprise: I then started my Nero program- I picked CD (not DVD)- picked CD-ROM(ISO)- copied and paste all the saved folders that the "CD Recovery Toolbox" saved. (default location). I burned the CD at the slowest setting (8x). I went outside to my FEH, popped the copy into my NAR system, and it worked perfectly.

    I got a working copy of my Map 1 CD from my original CD that came with my FEH. :) Very happy (you can't order just one map CD from the Navteq website, you have to get the whole package-$200).

    good luck.

    ZB

    p.s. I shouldn't say perfectly since I just did an initial test in my FEH with no problems. I don't know if all the files are saved, but it feels good so far.

    I recently purchased an 06 Mariner hybrid and it had all the nav CDs except the one covering Indiana which is where I live. Would trade for either coasts.
