Question about Pioneer DEH-P840MP CD Player

WMA/MP3 Playback will not work

I've tried many of different ways of burning WMA or MP3 to a CD-R but can't get them to play. It's take forever to load (5-10 mins) then only play one song, you skip tracks and and then it won't play any of them. It just skipping to the nest song over and over. Is there a special way you have to burn the cd? or is the player?

    Thanks for all your help. I am burning then with a current version of Roxio and tried burning them under Windows Media and into an CD-R disk. At first i burnt a cd that had both WMA and MP3 mixed through out the cd. It only played a few songs then would start skipping songs. I downloaded the manual and it says that mixing them is fine but you have the push "BAND" to switch the file system. That doesn't do anything. So then I tried a CD with just WMA and that took forever to load then it started to play one song so I pushed next track and then it wouldn't play any of the songs. So then I tried MP3 and it did the same thing as the WMA. I think it must be a software problem with the CD player. Normal store bought CD work great so I know it's not lens or hardware. Let me know if you have anymore insight

    If you are making a "data" cd that contains MP3 files it should work, unless you are using CDRW's. Decks don't really like re-writables.

You'r all close.. with the DEH-P840MP you HAVE to brun them as DATA...the player will NOT work if its any other form...and mixing them up wma, mp3, wma, mp3 screws with the processor thats why they say DONT DO IT...or make the first 5 songs wma and the last 5 mp3. its like starting your car in Reverse..the starter wont even engage so DONT DO IT...comon sense here.. IF ytour recorded CD's arnt working..change the format....its a no brainer.

I wish I could help more. Hec, I've burned the "data" mp3 disc and oplayed them on a cheap $90 head unit with no problem. Are you puting the mp3's into folders? Or just dragging all the files without folders. Again I have used a folder for each artist befor and put songs into corresponding folder and played on a cheepie play fine. hings that make you go Hmmmm.
Take care bro,

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.

    Its seems like an internal device problem with the software. i would just convert my mp3 to wav for the time being. i think you may have to send it back to the manufacture for repair. even with this software glitch, you should be able to play wav files. you can find these converters online.

My cd player taked forever to start playing my burned cd


2001, jeep, "new technology on old IRON?"
burned, burned what? did you RIP a CDDA disc to CDR
or burn a bunch of MP3? , my guess you RIPPED it.?

you expect burned CD to work? CDR or CDRW?
if you read the product datasheet for the actual player it will
list all formats that work (few) back then. RBB was zero.
its not weird, it's history,
there are many formats, for CD.
car CD began with CDDA, discs (like sold on the shelf in a store)
those are not file formatted, its track formatted like an an old LP album. (wiki CDDA)
then came file formats. (vast types. MP3 tops.)
there are 3 levels here.
CDR format.
then file types
last music encoding formats(complex)_ask
i can tell you that not all formats are supported on old cars. few to none.
some do SEEM? to work, but are flaky
and after 13years, not at all or more falky, (weak laser, optics dirty)

why not up grade and use USB sticks. ?????
CDs are pretty dead now.

which player, there are many? in dash.?
http://www.wjjeeps.com/radios.htm#AMFMCD

note the lack of CDR play back ( and all others) until 2002.
and even the 2002 is limited.
all car head ends are limited.
for max files.
max folder.s
max files in folder.

just because a CDR pays in a head end that does not support it
means ZERO, as some heads can see some data and attempt to play it blindly, it's just a very dumb headend. (dumb to a fault)

there are endless posts of users trying 100s of ways to fool it
some can,/ most can't (but is not supported so......)


if really curious. post head end ID , like RBB?
we can get the full spec. on that head.

and this,?
http://www.kigmaradioshop.com/servlet/the-46/RBN-RBB-P04858584AE-P04858584AH/Detail

my new jeep supports all these , yours dont
Supported formats are: CDDA, CD-R, CD-RW, MP3,WMA, DVD Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, and CDDA+MP3

does that help>/?

I have burned a .wma video file on a cd-r, on my computer it runs perfectly... only when i put it in my dvd player it say's stop and won't play. Can someone help me out ? Thanks Jeff


Several causes for non-playback:
1. Your CD player doesn't like CD-R
2. Your CD player doesn't recognize wma
3. The music you converted to wma is copy protected and the CD player wont play due to that.

Solutions:
1. Most likely this isn't the problem as most working CD/DVD players recognize CD-R. Double check with your user manual.
2. Check your DVD player's playback formats. Most will play mp3 and wav. If that's the case, rip your music to mp3.
3. There are many hacks out there to remove copy protection. This you'll have to figure out on your own :)

Want to play cd on old cd player


If you want an old CD Player to play a disc burnt on a PC, the file format has to me .wav. Most burning software will convert other formats to .wav files.

Cd/Rw playback CD player in lounge room won't play burned cd's...


Hi.

You need to burn your CDs in Audio format. That means that you cannot just burn your MP3 or WMA files, but you need to use the program which can convert those files to WAV format and write them so that ordinary CD players can reproduce them. Nero is such a program, among others.

Cannot Enable WMA Playback


what ever you do, DO NOT RESET SETTINGS cause then you just have to reset them and it wont do you any good. I had the same problem. The most lodgicall way to solve this is just to spend like 3 bucks at mcdonalds and get the wifi so you can play online multiplayer, go on the internet, and fix the wma feature. Or you could just free load off of a friends wifi or wirless setup. But you may have to enter a security code.

225 mr will not play burn MP3's


I have the manual and copied it verbatim for you. Please let me know if you need me to scan the manual for you. Acceptable medium formats: The following formats are available for the media used in this unit. The maximum number of characters used for file name including the delimiter (".") and three-character extension are indicated in parentheses. ? ISO 9660 Level 1 (12 characters) ? ISO 9660 Level 2 (31 characters) ? Joliet (64 character; Up to 32 characters are displayed) ? Romeo (128 character; Up to 64 characters are displayed) ? Long file name (200 characters; Up to 64 characters are displayed) ? Maximum number of characters for folder name: 64 (Joliet; Up to 32 characters are displayed) For a list of available characters, see the instruction manual of the writing software and the section Entering file and folder names below. The media reproducible on this unit has the following limitations: ? Maximum number of directory levels: 8 ? Maximum number of files per folder: 255 ? Maximum number of folders: 50 MP3/WMA written in the formats other than the above may not be successfully played and their file names or folder names are not properly displayed. Settings for your MP3/WMA encoder and CD writer Do the following setting when compressing audio data in MP3/WMA data with the MP3/WMA encoder. ? Transfer bit rate MP3: 8 ?320 kbps WMA: 48 ?192 kbps ? Sampling frequency MP3: 8, 11.025, 12, 16, 22.05, 24, 32, 44.1, 48 kHz WMA: 32, 44.1, 48 kHz When you use your CD writer to record MP3/WMA up to the maximum disc capacity, disable additional writing. For recording on an empty disc up to the maximum capacity at once, check Disc at Once. Play mode may not be possible when portions of the functions of Windows Media Player 9 or higher are used. Entering ID3 tag: The Displayable ID3 tag is ID3 version 1.x. For the character code, refer to the List of Codes. Entering file and folder names: The code list characters are the only file names and folder names that can be entered and displayed. If you use any other character for entry, the file and folder names are not displayed correctly. They may neither be displayed correctly depending on the CD writer used. The unit recognizes and plays only those MP3/WMA which have the MP3/WMA extension (.MP3/.WMA). A file with a name entered with characters not on the code list may not play correctly. Writing files into a medium: When a medium containing MP3/WMA data is loaded, the unit checks all the data on the medium. If the medium contains a lot of folders or non-MP3/WMA files, therefore, it takes a long time until the unit starts playing MP3/WMA. In addition, it may take time for the unit to move to the next MP3/WMA file or a File Search or Folder Search may not be performed smoothly. Loading such a medium may produce loud noise to damage the speakers. ? Do no attempt to play a medium containing a non-MP3/WMA file with the MP3/WMA extension. The unit mistakes non-MP3/WMA files for MP3/WMA data as long as they have the MP3/WMA extension. ? Do not attempt to play a medium containing non MP3/WMA.

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
