Default Nt mmcs unit

Hi guys, looking for some help.
I have a 2009 NT Pajero and the navigation system decided not to work this morning. Everything else works, radio, cd, dvd, hands free etc. Just can't get the maps to come up.
I have the original map disc, dated 2007 and also what appears to be a burned copy of a 2012 disc.
The latter is what it's been working on up until this morning.
Played around with it all day, with no success.
Now I've got myself in a real pickle, I pressed what looks to be the reset button (little inverted button on bottom front right of the unit) and it now tells me to insert the map disc. Problem is, that and also a cd are in the machine already. I don't seem to be able to eject either now.
Would perhaps disconnecting the battery reset the unit.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks greatly Craka, pressing the top right hand side of the screen ejected the map dvd.
I just need to eject the dvd from the top slot now.
Any ideas anyone.
Thanks once again.

Have you tried inserting the original map DVD and not the burned copy. Sometimes the system won't boot up when the copy is in, once it's all booted up you can swap the discs out again.

No need to eject the music CD/DVD (the top one)
Once the map DVD has been ejected, put your original one in and the unit will do what it needs to do.
it will take a bit of time for it to realise something needs to happen but just wait a bit and it will (should) happen.
After about 1-2 mins the unit should come up with a "system loading, do not switch off power" type of message and a scrolling bar showing progress.

Once all done it will revert to standard settings and everything should work.

Thanks stevemc181, yeah I tried that.
That's how it got stuck in there in the first place. I pressed what I think is the reset button and it says to load the map dvd, so I put the original map dvd in the bottom slot and it did nothing.
Thank goodness it came out when I pressed the top right hand corner of the screen, as suggested.
Unfortunately, the burned copy is stuck in the top slot and won't eject.
I was trying anything and everything yesterday to get it working, but obviously buggered things up.
Par for the course this weekend however, with all things electrical. Put a sensor light up, doesn't work, nearly burnt the bloody caravan when the exhaust fan switch decided to short out. ( not my fault). Probably would have burnt if the fuse hadn't blown. Took ages to find the cause.
And now the Pajero.
We're supposed to be going away in the van on Tuesday but not sure whether just to stay home, the way things are going.

I've had the same issue, the MMCS will not boot with the after market disc.

Touching top RHS of the screen gets you in, once all clear insert the Original disc in the lower Map slot and it will boot up. Once its all happy again, you can re-insert the updated after market map disc in the correct lower slot..

Not sure why your newer map disc is in the top slot, presumably utter frustration and trying anything, I'm recalling using a straightened paper clip fiddling around in the top slot to get it ejected but not sure.

Thanks guys for all the suggestions.
Will go and try loading up once more.
Yes, it did end up in the top slot through sheer frustration.
Will keep you posted.

Well I tried leaving it 15 minutes and then reset and left it for another 5 minutes, still no success.
I wonder if whereis is similar to microsoft where you're only allowed so many downloads.
Anyone know?
Thanks again for all the suggestions.
