I have the same problem. My 2007 Honda Odyssey's 6 CD player showed "disc error", but my radio works fine. Would appreciate any suggestions.

same problem, when I get frustrated enough, I put my cd in the DVD player and it usually works. A new system would probably cost at least $1000. Not sure why a working cd player would be so difficult to make by 2005 (my vehcile).

All,
Below is from a post I sent to someone 4 years ago with the same problem.

My local dealer was willing to repair the unit (out of warranty) for about $400.00. They were going to ship it out to a repair shop that turned out to be someone I'll mention later.
I then purchased an EX radio from bronco_buddy on Ebay for $185.00 plus $15.00 shipping (he knows their value). He generally has a unit up for sale on a regular basis. They are coming from wrecked cars.
I checked tonight and there was not one unit for sale. Some joker is trying to pass off a face plate as a dim light solution. Stay away from that one.
I then was able to download instructions on how to remove the old unit. It took me about 90 minutes.
In fooling around with this nightmare, I discovered that the part that is bad, is inside the head of the unit, not the face plate. It is some kind of transformer.
Make sure that if you buy a unit, that it is the exact one for your series (EX, LX, DX), it really makes a difference. A local radio repair thief wanted $286 to repair my old unit and they hadn't even diagnosed the problem.
If you have any other questions, drop me another note. I hope this helps!

Here were the directions that I used:

P.S. The sad part of this is that Honda knows they have a problem and will not do anything about it. I imagine in a year or two they'll have some kind of recall. I believe that it is an Alpine radio.

Later I discovered a guy who repairs them out of Maryland on eBay for about $85 plus shipping. He posts occasionally. His name is Tom Bauer. I got his name from my Paypal archives. His e-mail was milveh@verizon.net . His turn around was very fast

Honda has a service bulletin on it for 2003 & 2004 Accords, but the 2007 uses the same unit. Bulletin number 04-027 dated 7/09/04.

I actually had to repair my unit twice in 195,000 miles using Tom Bauer. I forget the name of his business, but it was something like Electronic Specialists of Maryland. I last used his service in April of 2007. He also has something to do with military vehicles thus his e-mail. It was $95 including shipping not $85.

I am having the same problem, my Radio, and DVD are fine, it was a sudden thing where not one of the 6 CD's would play. Has anyone gotten back to you on this?? I called Honda, they said it would cost $1000. to replace, that's bull~ There's a flaw somewhere, and it's probably simple. Sure hope it gets figured out! Need help! Have alot of music to memorize.
Thanks Peggy

New Odyssey 2014 EXL CD player reading disc error after 2 months and 2700 miles!!!!! The dealer asked me if I had any grandkids who might have pushed a coin in the slot....I told them that my g.kids are always restrained in the back seat...not wandering around the front. Really!! Will give you follow up and would appreciate any help with problem. Thanks, Ellis

It is sad to see that Honda acknowledges this problem and won't do anything to fix it. Very poor customer satisfaction. I bought a 2006 touring Honda Odyssey about 2 months ago and got everything on the dash replaced, including the rear camera and navigation screen. All total about $2500 spent and Honda refuses to fix a "disc error" problem. I recommend a complaint petition.
