Not much to go on here. Are you using CDR-Music or Audio blank discs? That is all it will record on.

If the audio Cd that you have is using a MP3 file format what you can do here to make it play with this play is to use WAV format because not all payer works with MP3 file format they usually only support WAV file .

how long have you been using this player? I suspect the lens (laser).of your player. I think the lens is weak, that's why it skips.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one. Or to better clean the lens, loose/unscrew the player's cover, use a cotton board to clean the lens completely. This will help to wipe off dust on the laser (lens)

By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

Jvc xl z232 wont play burnt cd's

Yes that is very possible, if you are using different formats some players are not programmed to handle certain formats. It is rare to come across cd's that won't play, that would be due to a flaw at production and usually a bad batch.

Can you confirm the key change in fact slows or speeds up the disc very slightly

Logically, it would have to change the disc speed or the read cache would eventually over- or under-flow.
CD rotational speed is always varying to provide a constant linear velocity as the playback radius changes even without Key Change.
