it only need to indicate WMA or MP3 when its playing in that format. depending on how old the head unit is... most head units sold after the new ISO-9001 Standards need to display any and all specs http://www.iso.org/iso/about/the_iso_story.htm
try burning a data copy first to see if the head unit can search through the folders... if it wont search or do anything at all... its .wave (cd)
if the display reads unsupported format and continues to search....it does play mp3/wma
to get the mp3/wma files to play, change the settings in the burner program. (try default settings)
..... it takes time to render a nice mp3 disc from scratch, one its working, its really rewarding... 18-20 songs just isnt enough anymore.... try to use 320kbps mp3's as much as you can... anything lower will make ant car stereo sound like a 10 dollar alarm clock... keep the bit-rate high when it comes to music... your ears will last longer too...
Yes most newer cd player's are capable of playing mp3 music. My stereo plays them and its going on 10 years now. But if your not sure it sometimes says on the cd player mp3 if you have the vehicles orginal cd player, if it newer then 2000 you should be OK. :)
You might can find the manufacturer name on the top of the player. Write down any numbers too. Then contact the manufacturer and request a copy of the manual or you can even lookup their website and on there you should find a manual.
These units will not recognize certain media formats, notably, if you are burning your CD's with files in AAC, WMA, or MP3 format. I would highly recommend replacing the factory head unit with one that is aftermarket. You can do so with units that start around $100. The bonus is that you can get something that is iPod or MP3 player ready and never have to look at a CD again!
