Cd/Rw playback CD player in lounge room won't play burned cd's...

You need to burn your CDs in Audio format. That means that you cannot just burn your MP3 or WMA files, but you need to use the program which can convert those files to WAV format and write them so that ordinary CD players can reproduce them. Nero is such a program, among others. --- Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please rate your experience.

Some of the older cd players, car or otherwise, just aren't capable of recognizing CD-RW's. The player in my 10 year old Ford Mondeo doesn't, but the updated model player in the newer Mondeo does play CD-RW's.
It sounds like you haven't followed the last step to the burning procedure. All you need to do once you've completed burning your disc is to Finalize the disc. Read below why you need to finalize as well as the steps to follow in order to finalize the disc.
Hope this helps ;)
How to Finalize
Finalizing is writing the TOC (table of contents) on a
disc so a CD player can recognize the number of
tracks, the total time for each track, and their location
on the disc. A recorded disc must be finalized to
playback on a standard CD player. Once finalized a
CD-R disc can be played on CD players that support
CD-R playback. CD-RW discs can only be played on
CD players that support CD-RW playback. Consult
your CD player owner's manual to confirm supported
Finalizing is necessary to:
• be able to play a recorded CD-R or CD-RW disc on
a CD player
• prevent further recording on a disc
• avoid erasing tracks on a CD-RW disc
• record text information onto a disc you record
• A finalized CD-R disc can never be recorded onto
• A finalized CD-RW disc can be unfinalized for more
• The CDR300 can play back unfinalized CD-R or
• SYNC REC+FINAL mode automatically finalizes.
Here are the steps in order to Finalize your disk
1 Push Stop.
The display shows the number of tracks and their total playing time.
2 Push FINALIZE.
FINALIZE is displayed for about 3 seconds.
Check the type of the blank CD/DVD you are using. Certain players won't be able to play CD-RW for instance.
If that doesn't solve the problem you might try to slow down your burn speed for a better quality CD/DVD. Sometimes a faster burn speed will lower the quality and other devices can have trouble reading these.
The problem with old CD Players are that they sometimes are a little fidgety when it comes to reading CDRs.
You could try burning a new CD on the lowest possible setting, say 2x or 4x.
Also try changing the CDR brand as some cheap CDRs are prone to not reading in old CD Drives.
Try using a regular CD-R (CD recordable - record only once) instead of a CD-RW (CD rewritable - rewrite multiple times). CD-RW use a different "ink" to write the data to the disc and can be re-recorded/erased a couple of times before it loses its ability to write effectively to it.
Make sure the players can play the format you are using to burn. My surround sound system will play most audio but my car system will only play an origional cd format (AU) not mp3 or wav for example. Also some systems will not play cd-rw but will play cd-r and some won't play anything but origional cd's.
Nero 6 and 7 does not provides us the facilitiy of burning the DVD in appropriate DVD Format. Instead it burns the DVD in the normal DATA Format, which is not supportable by our DVD Player. To play the DVD in our DVD Player we should burn the DVD in the appropriate DVD Burner which itself converts the extension of the movie and make it proper for a DVD Player to read it. It also adds some files to the DVD which is sometimes used by the dvd player in running the DVD.
try to play a song from original cds.
maybe you brunt it in mp3 file, or its a different format. try to burn your song to cd-r.
if still, try to use nero to burner..
if it wont play your original cds and burnt cds,then the optical lens or the board is broken.
hope I helped you.
