Hi
I have a 2006 56 BMW Alpina B7
The cd changer and dvd changer
Doesn't come on

When you go on to the idrive it shows up faintly
Put when you press on the icon
Nothing happens


Everything else works on the idrive
Any ideas or solutions

If it shows feint in the iDrive it means you don't have that option available for selection.
 
Could be that there is something missing or broken in the CD/DVD changer or it is a programming issue.  If the iDrive doens't know its there then it won't let you select it.  Have you put a CD or DVD in the slot?  My iDrive won't let me select the CD option unless I have a CD in the slot.
 
Might be a BMW diagnistic job to correctly identify the fault. 
Be exclusive and drive a Petrol 5 Series!
