Hi, as much as a pain in the rear that it is, that is not an uncommon issue. The fact that it plays your commercial man. discs is a good thing. Now, here are a few things to try. Always use discs for music not data. Do not use rewritable discs. And make sure when you burn your discs, be sure to close them. Hope that helps.

Testimonial: "Hi Richard, The CD's themselves are fine, i have been playing them in a CD player and they work in both a Honda Ridge-line and a Lexus Sport Utility. There is no label on my radio that indicates a MP3 file may be used. Could that be the problem? If so, what would be the best file format to burn the music as?"

    Hi josh, there wasnt to many oem decks that would play mp3's. The manufacturer would rather sell you a cd changer. I assure you if an oem deck played mp3 it would be on that face of your system. Now on to your next question. Not knowing what your using burn your discs, i would reccomend the opposite of your data settings. I hope that helps you out. Btw, cd are nice, but thank the lord for digital flash take care.

Toyota echo 2002 cd player (without cassette, marked 31804) Radio works fine, but when a put on a cd, it reads it and starts playing... with no sound. Any ideas? Thanks a lot

well , as with all discs, old player will NOT play all CDs.
not even close.
first ask an old guy for CDDA disk or buy one from walfart.
then try that, only these disks work in all players.
other disks may or will not work.
like DVD-R, CD-R and any other recordable disks will fail.
that is the acid test, if the CDDA disk works (real audio disk)
works then the drive is ok, if not, its bad. simple as apple pie.

Disk will not play after music burned to it using media player version 11. Have 2 pc 1 it works on the is doesnt. Help

be sure under the burn tab you have chosen "audio cd". Also see if the disk you have burnt will play in the computer. It should play either way, where most regular cd players will not play mp3 files.

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...
