6-CD Changer Issue - LOAD, EJECT, CD ERRORS!

I just bought a 2007 Ford Fusion not more than 3 weeks ago and upon attempting to load my in-dash CD changer for the very first time to use it, on loading the last disk, I got an error message before the system advised
me to load the disk and the whole thing has locked me out. I try to eject the other disks and they won't eject, they won't play, and I cannot load the last one. I get LOAD ERROR, EJECT ERROR and CD ERROR any time I attempt to do anything. I put in only store-bought CD's too.
The dealer told me that these changers take a beating, however, this is a brand new car and the CD player has never been used before. This is the very first attempt and it fails. So, for them to say that, I disagree with them.
Has anyone else had this problem with these Audiophile radio/6CD changers and how many times did you have to replace your radios? I have a bad feeling about this after digging up a bit of research over this weekend and I kind of get the feeling that this car will be going back to the dealer again in the near future for the same exact issue again, after they replace the original radio. If they fail that easily, who is to say that it is not going to do that same thing again?
Comments? Solutions? I have a 6-year 72k warranty, so it is covered, but that is not the point. I'm almost prepared to get used to that fact and the radios will be getting replaced often.

    I don't know if I have the same type of CD changer that you have, but I had an incident that was similar on my Lincoln LS. What I noticed was there was a CD that had not totally ejected. Look at the slot for loading CD's and see if there is ANY part of one protruding. If so, pull it out with tweezers or some needle pointed pliers. I never had another problem after having removed the CD (one which I had burned) so I assume it was the CD and not the mechanism.

I had one go bad on my 03 Escape a few years ago, got it replaced under warranty.
On occasion I'll find a disc that was burnt on a cheap CD that won't read but it's pretty rare, also don't put any burnt CD's with homemade labels on them, they won't fit or won't come out if they do go in.

I had a 6 CD changer on my Freestar 2006 and I had it replaced with a single Ford CD player. That Ford CD 6 Disc Changer is apparently operating in such a tight space and at very high temperatures causing troubles with any homemade CDs that have labels on them......no matter how tight and professional the paper label. Actually the single CD Player is just as bad as the 6 CD Changer because this is what happens when you paly a homemade CD with a label. For 20 minutes no problems then after that it starts to skip bars then stops and starts erratically eventually totally stopping..........at least with the single CD player you can eject the stopped CD and get it back........with the 6 CD changer......the whole system ceases up and the eject function won't work........and that 6 CD laser reader has ruined two of my CDs......did something to them I don't know what....CD player is a piece of crap.......best solution is to play your CDs through your walkman and connect your walkman to the aux input on the DVD rooftop player.........works beautifully no problems.....also connect your satellite radio from the DVD Aux on the roof with a Y cord (2 phonos to a mini) to the input on the satellite box.....goodbye and good riddance to Satellite radio on FM bands......which is bad bad news for people travelling across the US.....This is my third Ford Minivan and this audio package which is the top of the line is the worst of all three cars I have driven.......The Windstar 02 with the Cassette port and an Aux connection was the best....the CD player played anything and everything....for as long as you wanted........those were the good Ford Days !!!
I hope the rest of the car wasn't designed by the same idiots that put together this 06/07 audio package.

Perhaps you missed the warning in the owner's manual that you should not play CDs with paper adhesive labels. Is case you did - you should not play CDs with paper adhesive labels.
