    It may be the type of cd media you are using. What brand are you using? Also, are the cds CD-R not CD-RW?

I may add alot of times older equipment has a hard time reading burned cd's because when ever burning cd's the pits that are burnt into the cd are shallow. The faster the cd burns the more shallow it is... one thing you can try to do is burn at 2x in the WAV format cause it most diffenately will not read mp3 format being that old equipment. You may get lucky burning at 2x because the pits that it burns in the cdrom will be deeper. As the clarification said do use CD-R's. If this doesn't work at 2x chances are that equipment is just not going to be able to read a burnt cd period. Good Luck!!! I hope this works for you!!!

Why can't I play cds burnt off my pc


It could be the PC is burning the cd's as MP3 or a WAV format other than 1400 kb/s. you need to find out what format the burn prog is running, Media player normally uses mp3 which older cd players can't read. You need to burn WAV or ISO format.

Why do i get format error when i put songs from a cd on the eclipse?


Hi,

1. Why do i get format error when i put songs from a cd on the eclipse?
= This is probably because the format that your songs are currently in is not supported by your device. Supported devices on the Mach Speed Eclipse 180 MP3 player are: mp3, wav, and wma. If your music is for example filename.cda, it won't be able to play because of the file format being .cda.


2. I also see the song on the eclipse but it says drm protected and will not play the song.
= When ripping your music, check your ripping options in whichever ripping software you are using that protecting music files is off, this may be the reason why your music cannot play - it may be protected to only play on the computer that ripped(recorded or duplicated) the song.

I have a number of RiDiscs with 4.7GB of material ( lectures) that I want to download on smaller discs so that I can play on my car cd player. How do I accomplish this?


The easiest way:

check the item on the link below:

http://www.i-source-global.com/epages/170990.sf/?ObjectPath=/Shops/170990/Products/RFMP3SD2&ViewAction=ViewProductViaPortal&Locale=en_US

Copy your audio file from the disc to a USB (pen drive) I am assuming your files are in mp3 format. Else use the audio ripping software mentioned below to rip the audio file and save in mp3 format and copy that file into the pen drive/SD card.

Connect the transmitter to your cigarette lighter adapter. Turn your car radio on. Tune the FM channel to a frequency, where there is no radio channels. Note that frequency. There will be a + and minus button on the transmitter. Press it up or down to bring the transmitter to the noted frequency. You can now hear the audio through your radio.

Different options of this transmitter are available. Some use a SD card instead of USB drive. All cost around $25.00

The second method is to rip the audio files to your hard disc. Use any software. For an example,
Check the link below:

http://www.freerip.com/


Download and Install. If your cd player is capable of playing MP3 files, rip the audio files from your disc as mp3 files to your hard disk. copy them to regular cd's. (assuming you have a CD burning software)

If your cd player is not capable of playing mp3 files, rip them and save as .wav files.

Then you need a cd burning software.

Go to the link below:

http://alternativeto.net/desktop/k3b/?platform=windows

Download K3B. Install

Open it. Select, a new audio project.
Drag your .wav files into it. Burn it. and you are ready to go.

1998 silverado cd will not play home burnt cd's, I


When you burn a cd on your computor there are a few different formats to choose from. You need to make sure you burn it so that the cd can be played on devices other than a computer drive. Ran in to that issue my self a while back. Hopefully the program you're using will allow you to use a different format.

The CD's I make no longer play in my car and other regular CD players. They are getting embedded in a folder and then burning. I did make sure they are ripping to mp3, not wma. Is there a setting I need to...


Are you writing a "data" CD, with many MP3 files,
or are you using Windows Media Player to burn a "music" CD?
Windows Media Player will convert the MP3 files back to WAV files.

The CD-reader in your car cannot read MP3 files -- it can only read WAV files -- commercial CDs are written as WAV files.

When you put the CD into your computer, how many megabytes of the disk are "used", and how many "tracks" are there on the CD?

What can of home made cds does a ford taurus play


It will only play cd's in a proper format such as WAV, or MP3 and the CD has to be 'finalized'. If you have a really old taurus, it may not play burnt CD's at all.

CD's won't play on Home & Car stereo after Burning in Mp3 or WAv


most older car and home stereos will NOT play mp3's or wav files reguardless what kind of CD they are written on.
You need a newer stereo OR convert the mp3s to cd audio and then burn them to any recordable cd.. (audio cds can be read by any cd player but will take more space)

If you are using windows Media Player to burn the cd you have to burn to an audio cd. You can only burn to mp3 cd if your car or home system canread them. Wma audio cannot normally be read by car or home audio. The file format is called WAV

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.
