CD's are skipping

My cd player has recently started skipping on random songs. This happens on all different cd's that I play. It's as if it gets "stuck." The unit is only two years old. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Try cleaning the laser diode with an alcohol-soaked swab. be careful not to use too much alcohol or to press too hard against the diode lens.

WMA/MP3 Playback will not work

This may be a problem with the internal software within the pioneer device. Try burning your music using the wav extension. these files are larger than the mp3 but, this should play well. you may need to try an updated version of the burning software you are using as well. this could be the problem.

Cda-9885 ipod not searching

I had the same problem. I got it resolved by making the MIX OFF. Just press the button number 5 to make the MIX (Random Play)ON/OFF. After the search you can set the MIX to ON. However set the MIX to off before you start any search every time.

My tracks don't play in the recorded order, list I made them.....

If song tracks jump or skip then it is problem of cd player like optical laser is dirty / clogged,
and if track doesn't jump or restarts in middle of playing back then cd player is just fine,
Please check cd creator software settings.

Will not play all songs on mp3 cd

It's possible you are reaching the 99 folder limit of the deck. Count how many folders (artist folders and album folders) there are between Alkaline Trio through John Butler Trio. The manual says there is a maximum of 99 folders acceptable, but it doesn't say what happens if you have more.
I also assume the bitrate of the songs is 320kpbs or below, yes?
The manual also mentions "Folder hierarchy is allowed up to eight tiers. However, practical hierarchy of folder is less than two tiers", whatever that might mean.

MP3 files start skipping/popping after few minutes of playback

Sony say in the manual that if you record high bit-rate mp3's the sound may be intermittent. I feel this is due to the decoder having to move ALOT of bits around to play, try some makeing a disk with mixed rate mp3's on. e.g.) some 64Kbps, some 128, some 192, and some as high as you can get and see if there is any differ Luck
