I have an 04 RX8 with the Premium Sound Bose package. I inserted a cd and it said check cd. so i hit eject and then it quit working. You can hear it spinning around but it doesnt say anything anymore such as eject or anything. It wont play- it says cd in. I thought my car had waranty left when I bought it, to find out that I dont. HELP I dont know what to do. I tryed to get it to eject by disconnecting the battery-- none came out

i was saying cause WikkedOne said something about sound and the controls- all of the radio is working-sound wise but there is no sound at all comming from the cds- all i hear when i switch it to that mode is the cds spinning not playing them at all if i hit display it shows that there are 6 in there thats about it
If it still makes the normal loading and unloading noises, something may be jammed. If it were me, I'd pull the radio and disassemble the changer unit to see if it's something obvious. If i didn't find anything, I'd replace the changer unit with an MP3 CD unit purchased from one of the fine vendors here.
If you're out of warranty and the damn thing wont work anyways, you don't need to worry about breaking the changer when you take it apart.
It really depends on how mechanically inclined you are.

It's toast. This is a known problem with the Bose (and other makes for that matter) changer units. After about 3 years or so, the plastic drive gear for the load/change disc function cracks and you're done.
thank you we're going to take it out and see if its stuck and go from there, im out of warenty so we will go from there, its not that old- id rather know whats wrong if we need to buy a new one i will but i dont wanna pay 100 bucks just for mazda to look at it
i have actually had the exact problem happen to me and every time i turned on my car you could hear it try to eject itself but nothing would happen and since i never really had time i didnt get a chance to take it to the dealership to get checked out and after about two or three months one day the cd just came out on its own and i didnt have a problem with loading or ejecting the cds anymore but another problem occured where when i drove even over the slightest bump the cd would skip A LOT luckily my warranty hadn't ended yet so i took it in and they sent in a replacement but i had to do it twice because when i got it back the first time i found out they put in a single disc player so i had to go in again and wait for them to get the 6 disc changer in and get it put in again
