Unhappily, I can accept that. But that begs
two related questions -- is that also a problem
with home changers and, if not, what makes it
different in autos? Not likely to be heat
because the CDs show no characteristic signs
of being overheated.
I think the difference is mainly related to size. Home units have room for a
larger drive mechanism while space is at a premium in cars. The label takes
too much room and jams.
The home units I have are tray based. Auto units normally suck the CD in and
spit it out... hopefully.
I don't know the internal workings of the changers. My wife put a labeled CD
in our Toyota 6 CD changer and I was lucky to be able to grab the edge and
get it out of the little slot. I think even a single labeled CD can jam
inside some units.

Just received word from someone else owning a Toyota who had her
6-CD changer jam with NON-labeled, commercial CDs and wasn't as
fortunate as your wife. Time for another recall notification ... or
a portable CD player sitting in the front seat. -- digger
I have troubles with my 2002 CRV Cd player every now and then too. All
of a sudden it starts skipping and then it stops. Also sometimes I get the
BUSY message. It does get very annoying when it happens. I have
considered replacing it with a aftermarket player.
Mine also occasionally skips and stops. Have begun playing only
single CDs in two varieties -- those which are store bought and
those which have been burned -- BOTH w/o any homemade labels --
to compare skipping and stopping as well as confirm freedom from
