Burned CD's won't play in auto CD player

Read and write both work fine. But when I try to burn an audio CD it will not play in my auto CD player. I have tried using both Roxio Easy Media Creator 10, and Nero 7 essentials (that came with the drive), but burned CD's will not play. I even tried to burn with Windows Media Player with the same results. I tried burning at 15X but it was no help. Any suggestions?

    I only use CD/RW for data back-up. I have used CD-R and CD+R and I have tried 3 different brands of CD. Iam running WINDOWS Vista Home Premium with 3GB of Memory and a 320GB HD, NVIDIA 8600GTS 256MB video card, AMD 64X2 5000+ processor. The computer is new. Just purchased from DELL 3 weeks ago.

I had the problem of burned CD's not playing in my car. I used a CD-R and burned it at "slow" burn rate. Now I don't have a problem with playing the cd's in my car player. Try it, it worked for me.

Why won't a cd disc that I "burned" play on my Panasonic CD Stereo System?

Try cleaning the lazer lens in the Panasonic cd player. Dust can cause it not to read the disk.

Some players are like that! You need to experiment with different makes and speed settings when recording!

Why does Burn't Audio CD not play on some CD Players

because the codec's are different, if you have ever burned a avi file and it didnt play till you added say divx ir xivd to get it to play tech leaves out alot of the codec's so there system will work on most but not all cd's dvd's the only way around it is to find out which codec will work for that player to test what I have just told you take the cd to the store and try it on a different mechine and see if it works

CD player won't play MP3 CD's?

I have had similar problems in the past - on one computer discs burned using nero were unreliable but using Windows Media Player they were fine and on other computers the Windows programme was useless and produced unreliable inconsistent results.

I suggest you experiment with different burning software and maybe suspect the drive you are using might be past it's best.
I have several cd players in my vehicles and around my home. Only a couple of them will play all the discs and most of them are very choosy and will only read premium price shop bought discs and it is a waste of time trying to play a discount store or freebie disc, or many of my computer burned discs.

I don't know what the differences are - maybe it is the software or the power of the laser burning the disc or the sensitivity of the reading laser, but there are many differences in there somewhere. The situation is very frustrating...

Cd/Rw playback CD player in lounge room won't play burned cd's...


You need to burn your CDs in Audio format. That means that you cannot just burn your MP3 or WMA files, but you need to use the program which can convert those files to WAV format and write them so that ordinary CD players can reproduce them. Nero is such a program, among others.
