Problems burning 2006.2 DvD

I know there is a thread for the DVD but there isnt any for how to get it working.

I downloaded the 2006.2 maps dvd (US) & by now I have lost count of the amount of DvDs I have wasted trying to get it to work. Heres what I have done:
  1. I burn the "DVD image" using Alcohol 120.
  2. I have used BOTH DVD-R & DVD+R
  3. I have used DVDs from Verbatim, Playo & HP
  4. I have burnt at full speed & at the slowest
YET my MKIV system refuses to read ANYTHING.

Those of you who have it successfully working, PLEASE tell me what brand of DVD should I use, what speed & what software did you use. This is driving me crazy !!! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT : Just FYI I have a 2003 330xi with the MKIV & 16:9 screen.

Hey
HAve the same problem. Went through countless discs of different brands. They were all DVD+R. According to a poster on here, the DVD needs to be called NAV_DB. The version I downloaded (t*rrent site) calls the DVD "CD_5171". This might be incorrect OR it just might be for the newer E90 vehicles. In any case, I've dumped the DVD to my HD, and re-mastered it into an ISO with a title of NAV_DB. I will try it out in my car in a few days and let you know if it works...

Hrm
I think then that maybe this disc is for the new iBus system. Have you compared the file/directory structure of your old NAV CD with this one that is downloaded? I'm thinking this because there are two separate and incompatible DVD systems for BMW since last year...

I downloaded it from torrentspy with the link posted from the forums here. I downloaded it a while ago, probably the first week of May.

Its the same torrent that everyone else claims they have got working. I dont think I want to waste money & buy any other brand of DVD when 3 of them failed, not to mention how many of each brand I wasted.

i'm having the same problem as well. i have the same file and i extracted the iso using winimage. here are pics of the extracted files:

In each of the folders starting with "V" below, there is a DBAL.OUT file of different sizes.

When I opened up the 2005.2 Nav DVD, there was only the DB and TPD files and some other files that this image doesn't have. Hopefully someone can figure out from the pics above how to make it work. Thanks.

Hrmm I have a similar directory structure as you, except the files are in lower case. Maybe this has to do with the issue of burning it with ISO vs. Juliet etc..?

Also - what is the title of your 2005.2 disc?

The title of my 2002.1 (yeah ) DvD is the same as the image , that is NAV_DB & both of them have everything in uppercase. Yes even I have extra files apart from the DB & TPD folders.

I am going to see if there is a firmware update for my DvD burner & try on some more brand DvDs, I just picked up 10 -Rs & +Rs from Fuji & see if they make any difference. Here we go again

Hrmm.. this is strange.. looks like there are different versions of the image floating around.. Can you send the link to the torrent you downloaded? Mine was from:

http://frankyflip.dns1.us:6969/stats...829977c7d573d7

filename is bmw20062.iso
its a 4.3 gig ISO of the DVDROM. The title ends up being CD_5171 when you burn it, and my nav rejects it..

anyway, post your torrent link and i'll compare them.. hopefully they're different and we might have something here..
