I put a video into the cd drive and when I try to play it (it's opening through windows media player) the time will move as if it is playing, and the sound works, but there is actual video on the screen. What could this be?
Thanks for your help!

It depends on the format that they were put on the DVD initially, to play these on a car stereo or CD player they may need converting to be recognised by a standard CD player.
In vista, you can use Windows Media Player to do this. I'd recommend copying them to your computer from the DVD by creating a folder called "radio shows" or similar in an area you can easily find again On the desktop is a good place.
Now open Windows Media Player and insert a blank CD into your CD/DVD drive (I'm assuming you have an optical drive that will burn cd's)
In the menu of Media player, you will see a tab called "burn", click on it and you get the option on the right of the pane to "create a burn list". Make sure the icon says audio cd
Now open the folder you just created called "radio shows", select the first shows you want to burn to cd and drag the file onto the area marked "drag items here to create a burn list"
As you add files the CD meter should start to fill up, when it is near full, you can click on "startburn" which is at the bottom of the pane. Your compilation should now burn to a cd, repeat for the next cd.
If you get stuck, under the burn tab, there is a help with burning guide

Tips & Warnings
If you converted files using the Mix It Plug-In, you will need to use Windows Media Player 10 to sync them to the player.
What happens when you chose open to see files, this is how I us mine. I go to the folder tree and drag my files from the computer folder to the music folder on the player. If you use windows media player you can convert cd's to mp3 from the menu at the top. if you can not see the menu right click the top bar next to the now playing button, and chose classic menus. Then go to -> tools -> options -> rip music tab and look for the folder it will put mp3's in or change it to a folde you make at the top of the folder tree say ( create a folder named AAA. right click the top c:\ drive and create a new folder and re-name it aaa that will put it at the top). then in the rip music location chose mp3 rip when cd in inserted and close out and your good to go. rip a cd and drag it onto your player.
put a blank cd in your drive and make a playlist in window media player and open the copy to cd dialog and copy your contents.
You can also go for 'nero' for the same purpose which is more easy and better.
