CD's won't play on Home & Car stereo after Burning in Mp3 or WAv

most older car and home stereos will NOT play mp3's or wav files reguardless what kind of CD they are written on.
You need a newer stereo OR convert the mp3s to cd audio and then burn them to any recordable cd.. (audio cds can be read by any cd player but will take more space)

CD's won't play on Home & Car stereo after Burning

I may add alot of times older equipment has a hard time reading burned cd's because when ever burning cd's the pits that are burnt into the cd are shallow. The faster the cd burns the more shallow it is... one thing you can try to do is burn at 2x in the WAV format cause it most diffenately will not read mp3 format being that old equipment. You may get lucky burning at 2x because the pits that it burns in the cdrom will be deeper. As the clarification said do use CD-R's. If this doesn't work at 2x chances are that equipment is just not going to be able to read a burnt cd period. Good Luck!!! I hope this works for you!!!

CD's play in Media Player but not Home/Car CD player ?

If you are using windows Media Player to burn the cd you have to burn to an audio cd. You can only burn to mp3 cd if your car or home system canread them. Wma audio cannot normally be read by car or home audio. The file format is called WAV

Can not burn disk on laptop

Will the disc play in your PC or another PC when it is put in there?
Will someone elses burned CD's play in your stereo?
If so, then there may be an additional step when you burn the disc called "finalizing" that will complete the burn on the disc in a way that will prevent any more songs from being added to it, but will make it readable in many more devices.
This usually is either a checkbox or an option pops up after the disc is burned (I don't know about i tunes software for sure).
Since a lot of older stereos cannot play burned CD's there is still a chance this will not work for you.

Cd burner wont burn whole cd. It burns 6 out of 18 songs and wont work in cd players. hp pavillion laptop dv2000

Some Cds (or individual songs) are Copyrighted, so they will not burn to new CD.
Make sure you're using CD. W. and not CD. R.W. as the latter will only play in your computer CD player. Where as the former will play in your car or home player.

My e drive

Are you using windows to burn it or some kind of burning software. i use NERO but Roxio will work to, depends on what you like.

If the files are audio files it will show you how many minutes you have left as you add files, but if there data files, it will probably tell you how much space is left. When i say Windows as the burner, i mean the drag and drop feature windows uses where it says " Files to be written" or " Burn these files to CD".

Windows just burns file as they are with no converting, you need a burning program that will convert the files and set them up to be played like a cd in a car or stereo.
