Sounds like the disk has not finalised correctly. Computers can play CDRs when they are only partly completed as they search the disk fro the files. A CD player expects to find a Table of Contents to tell it where the tracks are and if this has not written correctly it will not play on ordinary CD players but will work in computers.

When you make a cd if the names are not coming in when you add the tracks you can try a feature on most programs which is called get track names or something similar if this does not work you can type them in manually most burning programs have the ability to do this . I have all these features on my burning programs . You would have to import the tracks into a new play list and try what I said bottom line is at the least you should be able to add the track names manually then burn and they will show up on most radios or CD players . Hope this helped
You could try to clean the laser, with a special cleaning disk. Don't try to clean a laser by opening the player, you will damage the system.
If it is a CD burned in a PC, it also can be the laser is now a bit less, not capable reading CD-R or CD-RW, and still can read normal CD's

Could it be the CDs you can't play, are burned in a PC?
Not all CD players can or will play CD's burned in a PC. Sometimes the CD player is to old, so not compatible with these CDs. Sometimes the player just does not play these CD's, because of rights protection.
A CD burned in a PC is less reflective than an normal music CD. Normal CD's do have a metal coating and are highly reflective. Burned CD's have a dye, and where the laser burned the dye, it only changed colour. Making it less reflective.
All modern CD playes should be capable of playing CD r's. But the player that is really compatible, is labelled CDr and CDrw compatible.
The cd assembly is the issue, over a period of time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc, one possible solution is to buy a disc cleaning kit and follow instructions in an effort to recover the assembly. If that fails the only option is contact Bose for pricing since they are the only authorized service centre that work on their own products.
My Bose Wave Radio/CD developed this problem about a year ago. I don't use the CD player much and kept the unit clean. The disc spins but, the system does not read it. Cleaning the lens with cotton did not help.
