    CD Changer for '00 E39 w/ DSP & SPDIF: Internals

    A replacement CD changer is required for an '00 E39 equipped
    with the Business Radio and DSP. (The changer must have the
    3-pin and SPDIF coax cable connectors to be compatible with
    the other existing OEM components.)

    An updated BMW MP3-capable changer was purchased, but this uses
    3-pin and 6-pin cable connectors. It is incompatible with the
    '00 DSP components.

    The OEM changer appears to have an AI-Bus. The updated changer
    appears to have an I-Bus

    Do any Roadfly members have knowledge about AI & I-Bus protocols
    and whether the internal drive/changer mechanisim from the I-Bus
    changer could be swapped into the AI-Bus changer's case.

    I'm pretty sure AI-bus and I-bus are the same ("A"lpine "I"-bus). BMW moved to a slightly different interface (still I-bus protocol) for their later CD changers which is why the distinction between DSP and non-DSP changers.Keith
