On my 05 s60, my HU-650 is tempermental.<br>It is a pain in the ass to play burnt CD's on there. I get a ton of "CD errors". I've tried different brands, different computers. It was worse in the winter, so I bet the heat from the heater overheats the unit.<br>In the summer, I still have issues playing CD's.<br>Also, the steering wheel controls blink after I press a button, once after 3 seconds, and another time after 10-12 seconds.<p>Any ideas here? Aftermarket CD players don't really impress me for this car.

I assume you are burning as a 'MUSIC CD' and not just mp3s.<p>I have no problems with burnt music cds but obviously mp3 data files on a cd will not work.

Try different brands of blank CDs, especially if the ones you're currently using are any sort of bargain brand.<p>What doesn't impress you about aftermarket stereos? I've never been impressed with a factory stereo, except to say "this sounds pretty good, for a <i>factory</i> stereo."

However, I think the perks of owning a Volvo is its luxury components. Losing steering wheel controls, having a poorly designed faceplate... really turns me off. <br>Without going custom, I am struggling to find a design I am willing to buy.
