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.

Could it be the CDs you can't play, are burned in a PC?
Not all CD players can or will play CD's burned in a PC. Sometimes the CD player is to old, so not compatible with these CDs. Sometimes the player just does not play these CD's, because of rights protection.
A CD burned in a PC is less reflective than an normal music CD. Normal CD's do have a metal coating and are highly reflective. Burned CD's have a dye, and where the laser burned the dye, it only changed colour. Making it less reflective.
All modern CD playes should be capable of playing CD r's. But the player that is really compatible, is labelled CDr and CDrw compatible.
it all depends on the CD's your using. some CD's will not play on some players. try DVD-R blank disc, this may make a difference. try one to see ! I ran into the same problem a while ago! it depends on the player itself, DVD-R 4.7GB data 16xspeed. this should work if player is compatable with it.
the CD player is a clever one thats looking for the copyright on the CD .Try using nero to burn the cd that oftens fools the player ,or an old computer with windows 98 on it with a copy of the old nero or windows media player that come with windows 98 as the later versions will not work with a lot of expensive players .if it has a line in plug then use a i pod or your mobile phone ,if it has a tape player then use a cassete with the wire coming out that plugs into a audio device ,i use my mobile phone which has a 1gb memory card in my jag as i have the same problem with the cd player ,also in the every day car my escort i use this as iam fed up with having the window broke and cd player nicked .But i have found that burning cds with an old computer with windows 98 i can burn cds that will play in the jag ,not that i use it a lot cant affords the petrol here in spain at 5 dollars a gallon
There is no easy answer to this. I know that I have problems when I burn CDs in any format using my computers DVD burner. Fortunately I also have a regular CD burner which seems to do a much better job. It may also be the CD player needs to be cleaned, seems that MP3 capable CD players are more sensitive when playing MP3 discs as opposed to regular CDs. There is really no other format that is widely supported (other than WMA) that will give you the capacity of a MP3.
You cannot burn audio CDs from MP3 files. You have to burn MP3 files as a data CD and not as an audio CD. See excerpt taken from page 33 in the CDR420 user guide. "Prepares CDs that can be played on standard CD players. Compact Disc Digital Audio (CDDA) uses uncompressed PCM, .wav files. The CDR420 does not convert MP3 files to PCM so MP3 files are ignored if you choose AUDIO as the CD TYPE"
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.
