It's my CD player. It is about five years old.

A new CD plays OK the first couple of times, then starts jamming. Old CDs jam too, so I imagine it is the player. However, they tend to jam in exactly the same places, so is it the CDs as well? Confused. Any ideas?

you may find the laser need to be cleaned. i can unscrew the back of mine and use a cotton bud to clean it. If you do that take the plug out before hand. or have a look in your local paper there maybe someone in there who is chap and will have a look.

yea this works.
you can also clean the cd with some mild alcohol or cd cleanser. but clean it outwards not side to side or it will scratch.

the only problem with those cd cleaning disk things is that your cd player needs to be able to read the disk to work.

i would suggest blowing into the cd bay jus to get rid of any excess dust, as this is what might be causing this, otherwise trying to get to the lazer and cleaning that with a soft cloth, nothing with particles on, then that should work, otherwise it might be the actual cd player and a new one might be in order.
