Does anyone have any idea why I can’t get a burned audio CD to play in my girlfriend’s car CD player? She has another burned CD that works, and it’s a really old player. I have a Lite-On DVD/CD-RW 48 speed thing.
I’m using Nero to make the CD, and I tried slowing down the burning to 16-speed. Still didn’t work.
Does media make a difference?
I tried keeping it to the original CD length spec (65 minutes, I think), and that didn’t work either.
Anyone have any grand ideas? Or even less-grand ones?
It’s safe to burn up to 73 minutes, beyond that, you’re getting dangerously close to 74, which is the maximum on older drives. However, if the drive plays “Load,” or other 74+ minute CDs fine, then you’re safe to burn up to 79 minutes.
Burn it at 2x, and see if that helps. Try several media types. Use disc-at-once mode, and make sure you’re always locking the disc after the data’s written.
Really? I thought every track on an audio CD was 44.1khz? Most of the MP3s I was burning were recorded at 192k, but I can’t see how that would affect this since it converts it to the Redbook standard, right?

That is correct. Ignore everything Skinner said. Bitrate of the MP3 is irrelevant, as long as Nero or whatever you use is converting them to Redbook audio.
Whoops. I miss read the burned cd thing. I thought it was different mp3s being burned to disk.
Anyway, if redbook conversion will take a 60 kbps 24 Hz Mario Lanza mp3 and convert it to a format readable by the factor cd player in a 1992 Dogde Intrepid, it’s news to me. So like mach says, ignore me. Sorry.
