MDX Navi DVD disk reading error Unformatted

My Navi is now giving me the Unformatted message.

I removed the unit and sent to Alpine for repair along with the $185 flat rate check. Got it back a week later. Alpine says they didn't fix it, returned my check and said that since it was a 2001 Navi system they no longer stock parts so I was out of luck! Acura wants $3,000 for a new unit! The dealer said to try to find one on Ebay.

Has anyone else on the forum replaced their Navi unit with success??
2001 MDX, original owner.

Are you looking for a Navi ECM? What part exactly needs to be replaced?

55,
I don't know what part needs replacing. The navi disk will actually boot up and work about 1 out of 6 times. Would that be the disk reader? If it needed cleaning I am surprised Alpine didn't do that instead of returning it to me saying there are no longer any parts.

Might as well give it a try rather than replacing the whole thing!

Here is a replacement screen and drive:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2001-...fAudioQ5fVideo

Comparing that ebay link to this site:

http://www.acuraoemparts.com/delray/...All&vinsrch=no

You can see $449 for the screen/drive is better than the $4000+ this site is asking!

thanks 55. Sorry I went offline for awhile. But I'll look to see if that is still on ebay. Not sure how I would protect myself if it doesn't work.
