I've installed a new factory fiber optic changer and can't get it to play. Head unit and dash read out says no cd changer. Do I have to take the car to the MB dealer so they can reprogram the car's computer? Please advise. Thanks!

Did you use the correct fiber optic cable? The cable for the standard headunit is different than the one for the Bose headunit.

Lynn,<br>
Yes, I used the fiber optic cable that was supplied with the car in the trunk, pulled it out and it used for the glove box installation. I have the standard headunit not the bose. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

This may be wrong, but I have been told that the fiber optic cable in the trunk is for the telephone. If it is for the telephone, I don't know if it will work with the cd changer.

Lynn, Thanks for the tip, The extra fiber optic cable can be used for either , just unsnap connectors at ends and change accordingly to application. Finished install yesterday and all works great!

Dale, I found the extra optical fiber cable package in my E-430, but not sure how to insert it. I could see an optical cable marked 'radio'<br> behind the liner. Is the extra cable to be inserted into the 'radio' cable by breaking<br> the 'radio' cable connector? I didn't see other<br> loose-end fiber connector that I can plug the<br> extra fiber cable in. I'd like to understand <br> the connection before buying a CD-changer.<br> Appreciate a hint. Thanks.

YOU SHOULD MAKE SURE TO TAKE THE OPTIC CABLES APART AND LINE THE RED TO THE WHITE AND SO ON, THEY WILL ONLY WORK IN ONE DIRECTION.<br>
