i had a CD based system in my 52 reg cooper s, tried an upgrade and it messed it up. Took me a good couple of days to learn how the system worked to find a fix for it. Got the upgrade loaded on in the end and got a map disk from ebay but didnt notice any changes...SO....


I got a mk4 DVD drive from ebay, havnt looked back since, its so much better. save your time and money and look for a DVD system.

DIY Help!!

Hi there,

I know I am not strictly a MINI user (though I often get one as a courtesy car!) but I have a major prob with my BMW e46 sat nav. I tried to go to version 2.91 with a download from the x5 website, everyone else seems to have it working fine. Mine doesn't

The disk was put into the dvd drive in the car, turned to ignition point 1, then....the system tries to read the disk...constantly and reboots....constantly.....nothing else happens!
And to top it all off the disk is stuck in the dvd drive...H E L P ! ! ! !

I think I made a big mistake by burning it onto a DVD r/w disk, fair enough but how to I get it out of the car??

Any help MUCH appreciated!!

thanks and Reagrds
Mark

Hold the eject button down for about 30 seconds and then press it trhee times. That should "hopefully" get the disk out. Then you can reburn 29-1 to another CD and try again.

You can get a good copy of V29 from Simply MINI

Nope...no joy..

Thanks for the advice, but I have tried holding the button down, hitting it many times, for anything from 30 seconds to nearly 10 mins. Also tried removing the fuses to cut the power but no joy at all.

I am going to have to take it to the dealer tomorrow, lord knows what that will cost...!

Only other way that I know of is to manually remove it.

Sat Nav Still In The Dark

Hey Flakey,
I have downloaded the proper V26 file for the Mark 3 thats now on your site but still no joy, not sure if the sat nav is frazzled or it's simply not booting from the CD, i don't have a mode 1 or 2 option on my Mac software ( toast but i have tried burning from the iso and have just opened the disk up and burnt all the contents into a data CD - all at x1 speed - ill try that after work and see how i get on.

This is the full version. Lastly, make sure Mode1 is used and burn it slowly. Make sure you can access it with your computer. It may take a couple of min to boot in the NAV. Be patient.

I was looking around the Roxio forums and I don't see a way to make Toast Mode 1 or 2 selectable. Do you have access to someone with a Intel PC? I think that your problem is that the CD is in Mode 2 and the MK3 is choking on it.

For making disks of this nature I use Magic ISO.

Just a tip don't double post, and you get a better response if you start your own thread rather than hijacking someone else's, I have answered your question on your other post.

Sat nav no sound

Hi,

Can someone help me with a sat nav problem please,

I have a Garmin Zumo 550 which worked fine on my old Ford Focus,

I now have a mini cooper s 2002 I plugged the power lead into the cigar lighter and I got no sound, I checked both fuses and they are fine.

I was wondering if I need a special BMW adaptor.

Not quite the right thread as it is for the factory satnav on an MK1 MINI.

I can't see how the power adapter would determine if the Garmin's sound works or not. If it charges the unit then it's the right one. All 12v sockets are the same. They either work or not but won't switch your satnav to "mute". Do you expect the sound from the unit or via the radio/aux in?

I advise to check the satnav settings.

Sat nav problems

OK at long last I have found the problem,

It was a bad connection at the cigar lighter socket end, all is well now.

I must remember to put my posts in the correct thred next time.

Kind regards,

The scoundrel.
