I have no idea if this is a problem with the CD player itself, but all the CDs I burned previously on the old computers running Windows 98, ME and XP will play in my car cd player. All the CDs I have burned on the new computer running Vista will NOT play - one of them will play but I can't skip ahead;. if I try the player refuses to play the CD anymore. One of them will play about 3 out of the 16 tracks. The rest of them, I just get an ER-7 message. I ran the cleaning disc through the player - and it took about 20 tries inserting and reinserting THAT before it would read it - and still have the same problem.

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.
I had the same problem in my 1998 Jeep GC Limited. It has been a year and a half since I have played a burnt cd in my cd player. I researched everything possible and came to the conclusion that it was either the type of cd I was using (some cds with prints etc are hard for the laser inside the player to read) or the burning speed, and after many failed attempts, I still couldn't find a combination that would work. Then yesterday, my brother had a burnt cd he had made with his computer and we tried it just to see if it might work and it did! So, the brand of cd is Memorex, the type is CD-R, and they are 80min. worth of recording time. I purchased some of these cds at Hastings (although I'm sure they are avaliable wherever you purchase blank cds) and tried burning one in my laptop just to make sure it was going to work and it did! I burned the cd using windows media player and before I started the burn I went into 'burn options' and set the burning speed to the lowest possible. Hope this helps!
