i thought he black switch near the screw on the left would pop out the disk, but didnt work

the 2 black bits make the cd move up and down didnt want to move them too much

So can anyone tell me how the hell i get the disk out of the drive so i can stick in a european one. At the moment its a jap disk, not sure whether its cd or dvd. cant tell till i take the disk out!

if its the same as the dvd one you need power to it there's a little black flap you slide across and press the button and out it comes

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but..... the general consensus on here is that simply changing the CD is not going to make your system work...... It's not just the CD that makes it Japanese, but the hardware as well......

so i need to replace the unit pictured above? any idea what one to get and where i can get it from? and is there actually a Disc for Ireland? Searched ebay but not much there. might buy one of the disks to see what happens

Irish cities are supposed to be mapped ok.... but once you head for the countryside it's suposed to be very bad indeed..... mostly down to the fact that postcodes aren't used in all of Ireland yet......

As for what parts to change to get it working i wouldn't hazzard a guess, could be a money pit
