TVs & Home Theaters forum
21 Jan Okay, I've done this before, so I know that my car stereo will burn recorded CDs. not CD-RWs but just the CD-Rs. So, the last two CDs that I've burned won't play in the car. I played them fine on my Mac so I know the CDs aren't bad. Is there a setting in my iTunes that I could have changed to make the. Frustrated: new computer desktop with leopard -itunes down loads - macintosh hd burner that i down loaded for free onto computer -CD-RW sony disks mb 1x 2x 4x speed (that could be the problem?) -burned 19 songs, worked -cd plays on compter good -cd ejects in my car after 3 seconds. Can anyone explain to me why CD's burned on my computer (Dell Dimension/ Vista/Napster) won't play on my CD/DVD Panasonic carousel (DVD-C)or my car CD player.
No more Windows Media for me. The windows that appear are similar.
You then go to the top right corner to the little icon with the tick on it. Scroll down to click to "audio CD".
Been trying to figure this out for over a year since I lost my old car! Probably most frustrating thing I'very ever done. Slowed down the speed and got it! I finally tried using it, and viola, the little SOBs play on anything. I'd tried everything apart from the speed so chose the slowest rip link and lo and behold, I can now play the cd on my cd player and in the car!
Thank you very much: I went through disc after disc and never realized the problem until now. Burning at a slower speed has solved my problems with my CD-R discs!
Burned CD-R won't play in car CD player
I have struggled with cds that won't play in our older players but do Burned Cd Won T Play In Car on the computer. Once I burned it on a slower speed, it worked I can't tell you thank you enough However, will now try a lower speed and CD-R.
Or, rather, my thanks to the writer of this article! Many thanks and keep up the good work. Worked fine article source windows XP but never got it to work in Wndows 7 media player. Watched many videos on youtube with no help. Finally read this and figured out my burn speed was turned all the way up, turned it all the way down and now works. Thank you, thank you, thank you lol.

I used the CD-R discs. Any feedback you provide is sent to the owner of this FAQ for possible incorporation, it is also visible to logged in users.
What Can I Do? Check and make sure you are burning as "Audio CD" format. Many older players cannot handle CDs burned in MP3 format regardless of type of disc they were burned to while newer car stereos should play CDs burned as MP3s.
Additionally, many players cannot handle CD-RW discs. If you have one of those old players you must use CD-R discs.
If neither of the above is your problem, it may just be that the brand of CD-R disk you are using does not work well with your audio player. This happens sometimes and is quite normal. Try a different brand of type. Another thing to try is to burn at a slower speed.
how to burn audio on CD disk when your car player not reading discs
Try burning a disk at 1x rather than 2x or 6x or whatever speed your burner drive supports. Very often audio CD's burned at slower speeds will work in audio players while disks burned at higher speeds won't.
It's been said that the laser encoding is somehow "clearer" when burning at slower speeds and this helps audio players, which often have a problem with home-burned CD's, to cope with the disks. If your CD won't play at all, this probably isn't your problem but another tip is to try and record all your audio CD's in " disk at once " mode, meaning the whole disk is burned in one pass without turning off the laser.

Audio players like disks burned like this better. If you burn the disk "track at a time" the laser is turned off between each track, and audio players often cannot find any track other than the first one on such disks. Although, if you just start them playing at the first track and leave them, they'll usually play all the way through fine.
Burned CD's can be burned 1 of 2 ways. Try a different brand of media, some players are picky. Thank you very much:
