Can you get burned copies of navigation CD?
 
I heard that you can get burned copies of the North AM navi CD don't ask how just don't ask lo0l I kinda mashed my CD underneath some parts oops!!!fcplm

long story short I'm in need of the Navi CD

It's a 2004 750 Li *sad*

careful with burned nav disks. Over time they weaken the laser and cause the drive to fail.

Have seen it happen a few times and heard of it happening too many times for it to be coincidental. I don't know anything about the hardware, but I've been told that burned disks require the laser to re-focus more often or something and over time wears it out.

When it starts to go bad, the burned disc will stop working but the drive will still read factory discs sometimes. Replacing the laser solves the issue.

Network Specialist here (for over 19 years), this above is utter rubbish.

The laser in a CD / DVD reader does not very its power based on a disk in the drive, the only way you can damage a drive with a CD is below:

Warped disk
Disk with sticker on (this is by fair the way most was drives are damaged)

Labels make the disk unbalanced so it can hit the head or put pressure on the cap spin motor.

Been using burned NAV DVDs for a while in an E93 and E39. No issues whatsoever.
