Factory DVD Player

I have the factory Nav with the overhead DVD in my 2010 Traverse and want to play backup copies of DVD's . I had a guy tell me that it would void the warranty if I did, does anyone know anything about that?

Re: Factory DVD Player

I don't KNOW about that but...
I can't imagine that the DVD player would know that the discs were copies - illegal or otherwise. It would just not play them if it couldn't read them properly. Doesn't seem logical that GM would invest the cost for such technology.

Agreed! He told me it was in the manual, guess I'll have to read it and see. Maybe Michelle CS can check this out!

Reading the manual is always a good idea

Was this "guy" your dealer?

No, a guy I know that works for a Chrysler dealership, said it was in Chrysler manuals and was sure GM and the rest where the same. I mentioned I was thinking about copying some DVD's so I did'nt have to carry them back and forth, he told me it would void the warranty.

There is no way putting a burned or copied dvd in your player would void the warranty. That does not make any sense and I would have laughed at the guy. You said you have your traverse already? Throw the dvd in and see what happens. It will either recignoize the dvd and play it, or not recignoize it and wont play it. So I cant put a burned CD in my CD player or will that blow my car up?

Re: Factory DVD Player

Have to burn one and try. The manual says ( The DVD slot is compatable with most CD's, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-Video, DVD+R/RW single layer media along with MP3 and WMA formats. DVD-R, DVD-RW and DVD+R dual layer layer is not supported.) Never heard of a DVD-Video disc, the must mean the format it's burnt. But what that tells me is it should play DVD's as long as their not dual layer disc?

Re: Factory DVD Player

maybe he meant the discs you burn and apply a paper/decal label on the top?

Re: Factory DVD Player

Movies have been in the dual-layered format for quite awhile, so I would think the player would handle it. I'll have to take Avatar out and give it a try, but I'm guessing it would work fine.
I can't think of a recent movie that would fit on a 4.7 GB disc, unless it would be something like Strawberry Shortcake :-)
