Want to play cd on old cd player

I recently burned mp3 music onto a disk. It wouldn't play on my old cd player. I converted mp3 format to wma format, but that didn't work. Is it the CD itself or the format that needs to change in order for my cd player (NAD, about 10 years old) to read the CD?

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.

Hi, you need to convert the cd to "digital audio" format as i think wma are a slightly different format and given the age of the cd player there is a small chance it won't read copies. hope this helps?

I have a Technics SL-PD627 5 disc changer and I want to know is it possible to convert it to read CDs that I have burned from my computer? Thank you


You will probably find that it is the way you are burning the CD's not the fact that they are burnt that is causing your problem.

When it comes to home made audio CD's there are two ways to go:

Method 1 (MP3 CD - only works with newer CD players):
You essentially copy music to the cd as if it were a usb stick and then click write these files to disk. This method allows for (depending on file size) upwards of 100 songs.

Method 2 (Audio CD - the Red Book method):
In method two you burn a cd in the same way that you buy most CD's from the store. This way allows you to add up to 80 mins of music/audio to a disk (method one is limited to file sizes - method two is limited by the amount of time each song takes up).

Considering that the Red Book method was made commercially available in 1982 (the same year as your CD changer), and that the MP3 CD came into play in about 1999 - it is impossible for your CD changer to support the MP3 CD (unless it has been heavily modified).

Not playable bose


your car stereo and computer are more than likely able to play the files but the bose cannot because the music files are burned in MP4 format I believe. I'm not sure if iTunes can be converted to MP3 so it will play in your bose.

The CD-P1250 skips while playing cds


There is no easy answer to this. I know that I have problems when I burn CDs in any format using my computers DVD burner. Fortunately I also have a regular CD burner which seems to do a much better job.
It may also be the CD player needs to be cleaned, seems that MP3 capable CD players are more sensitive when playing MP3 discs as opposed to regular CDs. There is really no other format that is widely supported (other than WMA) that will give you the capacity of a MP3.

Do you know if the Sony CDP-C215 can play MP3 format?


No ... This is a 1st generation multi-disk player and, although it's a great, reliable, unit, it does not recognize MP3 or WMA files. You can play BURNed (automatically copied as CDI files) or RIPped copies (converted to WAV files only). The files are much larger ... but more detailed and accurate than compressed formats.

Pioneer CDJ-200 CD player will not read discs?


You need to be a bit more specific. It might be a formatting issue, in which case, you need to convert your music that's on your cds. The songs must be in "CBR or Constant Bit Rate" format. Most songs come in Variable Bit Rate format, which the 200's aren't able to play. Get a music converting application, I've used dbPoweramp's converter for quite some time, had to buy an MP3 license, but it was worth it. Unlimited conversions = more fun with the tables :) good luck!

How can i burn an audio disc that will play on a cd player and not just my pc?


Modern CD players usually can read all audio disk burned on any computer system.

If you have an older model however you may experience some problem with certain settings, follow instructions below:

1 Ensure that you burn on CD support, and not a DVD, many computer drive can manage the same way CD and DVD, and burn music on DVD, but the player won't read them.
2 Ensure that you are burning an Audio CD on the cd burning, if you will just burn your MP3 files onto a disk, an ordinary CD player won't read them, unless it has MP3 capabilities.
3 If you have an old system try burning at the minimum possible speed , systems built in 80s and early 90s where limited to low speed, some 80s CD drive could read only 2x or 4x.
4 If your system is old also chose close disk after burning option on burning software, this wont affect new cd players.

You also need a software to burn CD, if you do not have burning software , see choice on websites below:

Regarding problem with cd player


Quite a few players from that time did not play mp3's, due to the format's relatively new status. There is no way to play mp3 if the player didn't originally support it. You can try taking the mp3 discs you have and "up convert" to WAV type, then play them on your unit...accordianman
