    You need to remember to finalise or close them.

    I assume you are using an audio cd producing program and not simply burning as data.

    When you find out the answer, tell me as I have scads of CD's that have audiobooks on them that I would like to listen to. Ever since Sept and I had to reformat my machine I have not been able to burn any cd's and play them in my car. Before Sept anything that I have burned works just dandy. Can't figure it out either and I've tried numerous cd audio burner software to boot! This is very frustrating to me as I'm a little tired of listening to the same old books over and over again.

    Curlyben - I DO finalize the discs but they still don't play in my car either! I am using the same brand blank CD's also as I did before September.

    Try using the CD-R's instead. That's what I used prior to September and they worked just great. My car's CD system works OK on the ones I burned prior to September so I know it's okay at that end. I don't think the CD-RW's are for car CD playback.

    Double check the disc in your computer, when you open up the disc make sure they are not recorded as mp3 files on the disc.

    Then you have to be positive that your car audio player decodes mp3s. Otherwise it's a case of not all players can read CDRWs.

    If you are burning music files other than cda files and your car cd player does not support mps or wma you would need to convert the music files to .cda format which will play in any CD player

    If your car stereo can play mp3 files and does not play them, still convert them to cda format and you should not have a problem playing in any CD player

    here is a free one
    Leapic Audio CD Burner Free is a all-in-one CD burning software that helps you to create audio CDs from your favorite MP3, WMA or WAV files. Then you can play them in your regular stereo or car CD player! You may choose to burn 74 or 80-minute audio CDs on either 74-minute or 80-minute CD-R/CD-RW discs. There is no need to convert to WAV and your CD is burned directly.
