Ejects CDa with .mp3 files

I have downloaded some .mp3 files on to a CD-R 700MB . Everytime I put the cd in to the 740 it auto ejects it.  What am I doing wrong?  Is the CD format incorrect or something?   There is one folder on the cd containing 5 .mp3 files

    When I insert any CD into the machine it auto ejects it and won't play anything. The radio and all the other functions work ok but not the cd player.

    I seem to have the same (or similar) problem. With an MP3 disk loaded, the system may start alright and play for a while, then without warning ejcts the disk. In some case the play gets erratic first. That is, it will stop in the middle of a song and begin the next or even the next folder. When this begins to happen disk ejection soon follows. I do not have any problem playing the same CD ROM disk in my Sony DVD player.

    I have tried this with several CD ROMs with diffrent layouts and get the same result. I have not had this occur with a standard music CD.

you could try to power down the radio, by either pulling the fuses or disconnecting the battery. But usually if everything else works, you will need to have the radio replaced or sent for repairs

Has your car radio played burned audio discs before?

If so, you may have to refer to the disc types that have worked before (ex: TDK 80min/700mb works but Memorex 80min/700mb will not).

And if worse comes to worse it could also be your cd burning software. I personally use PowerISO to make audio cds (Had issues with the installed Windows7 burning software myself).

Try using a CD-AUTO Automobile Lens Cleaner kit. Keep in mind you pay for what you get. Try using a name brand cleaning kit.

When I burn a cd it is an application program not a audio cd.

In your application program is where the determination of audion verses application is made. Read you manual to determine how to select the proper settiings.

How do I put MP3's on my CD player?

If your cd player supports MP3 playback. When you write a music disc with your computer you must write them as a data file. Some burning software will ask if you want MP3 or CDA. if your files are CDA you must convert them to MP3s, you can download software to do this for you. But today most burning software will do this for you.
