Depends on the manufacturer I guess, but it seems to be a less needed feature with Bluetooth capabilities. My '17 VW has the CD player in the glovebox.

Pretty much. You can rip your music into a MP3 file, put it on your phone and stream music VIA Bluetooth.

Most of the CD stores have closed down.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

I was shocked when I realized my 2016 Challenger didn't have a CD player. On a positive note all my cassettes are pretty much worn out.

Yup, or put the files on a USB thumb drive or SD card. Most of these new car audio systems that no longer have a CD drive have a USB port or SD card slot instead to help accomplish that.

A 64GB USB thumb drive (or SD card) costs $15 and can hold hundreds of music albums in high quality.

Seems that most cars are moving them to an optional feature, believe it or not. It started out as optional, then became standard, then back to optional.

I haven't used a CD in a car in ages!

I used to use CDs in cars. Ugh, never again. Almost all of my cars have CD players but I never use them. Now I have about 2,000 songs on my iPod that I plug into the USB input and control it from the stereo. I just installed a new stereo in my CR-V and it does not have a CD player. It basically has only the USB input and Bluetooth, which is all I need.

My FXT has a single disc player, think my RAV6 had a 6 disc changer.
I would still play CDs that I had purchased and not ripped yet, and I like having CDs because I lost a big trove of digital purchases/copies when I was stupid enough to register my iTunes account using an old work email that I can't access anymore.
Now that my iPod broke and I have yet to replace it, I use the CD player a bit but mostly listen to Sirius XM.

Have you called Apple to see if they can help you?
