Some of my older burned CDs all store-bought CDs play fine, but all of the new CDs I make just spin around in the player but don't actually ever start. I've been considering buying a new radio/CD player anyway with newer technology, so I was wondering what the measurements are on this thing so I can get a replacement that fits. Thanks in advance.

I would recommend resetting the Rosen unit. This is done by entering the "Menu" and pressing "Settings". From this screen, you select "Keypad" in the top right corner of the screen and then enter "7-5-2-3" and press "Enter". This should erase any code for Parental Control (levels 0 - 8). Also, the Rosen product states to only use "Store bought media" for CD's and DVD's meaning that it won't play all 'burned' discs. Hope this helps.- Elliot
Its dirty, try a disc cleaner, (brushes not solution) and if that does not work, its time to replace, (unless the radio is all ya want). ALSO- if you are trying to play burnt discs, (cd-r, mp3 discs etc) than that could be the issue as not all indash cd players support non store bought cds
are they store bought CDs ? or are they copies? cause some players unless stated will not play MP3 or MP4 cds, or CDRs , CDRW Etc.... check if the Cds are burned copies, and then also check the music layout if copied, using the computer, see if they are mp3 files that should play if they are mp4 then the cd will act blank....hope this helps...
Do you burn your cd's with a computer? If so,what program do you use?If you use Nero,Roxio or any burning software of this sort,the data may not burn correctly resulting in an error during playback.
Another common problem can be the cd you are using or the drive it burns on.There are so many variables in CD burning that can lead to these issues.It happens to me a lot,so the solution is:
Use windows media to burn and it should go well most of the time.If you still have the problem,it may be the drive which can be replaced at low cost.
If they are regular cds you bought from the record company,than it is most likely the brand of car stereo you have.The laser could be damaged from putting scratched or damaged cd's in,or it could just be that the player is not great.
