I recently upgraded the 'puter, and can now write to a CD, I'm able to put a song on a CD and play it on the computer, but I can't play it on the CD player in the house? It just doesn't even try to play.
Any Suggestions??

I've been looking into a cd burner myself
and read somewhere that there's a difference
in cd's I think the re-writable ones WON'T play
in home systems and one-time write WILL or
vise-versa ask at your local music store they
should be able to help. Keep us posted as I am
in the market for a burner also...Gene......

I don't know much, but my little brother came over and gave me the Apple iTunes software... it works on IBM compatible machines... and it'll let me burn my music that way. Still, some CD players are just picky and won't play the burned CDs... I mostly burn mine for archiving. (Learned that lesson after my daughters mangulated my White Album. Drat.) ;)

What program are you using to write the CD? Will it write music CDs?

Put the CD in the computer and use File Mangler (windows explorer) to look at the file names. If the name ends in .mp3 or .wav it probably won't work in your CD player. If the filename ends in .cda, it should work.

I have that problem. Is it a rewritable CD? The first stack of CDs we bought weren't. They were just the one time use, and they worked great. This time I bought a stack of rewritable, and they aren't worth squat. My dad wanted me to burn some stuff for him, I did, but it wouldn't play on his CD player. The only player my CDs will play in is the one in my truck.

Depends on your CD player in your house and your CD writer on your 'puter.

Let's start with your CD writer. The software that records the song on the CD should have different options for you to record in different formats. The format you should choose is a more "universal" format that shoudl allow it to play on most car/home CD players. The default may be set to record on the 'puter-only format.

Now moving to the home CD player. Most older (4 or more yrs) will not play CDs recorded on a computer. The formats are simply not compatible. Newer CD players (and DVD players for that matter) will read multiple formats so you can use 'puter-recorded CDs anywhere ... including portable CD players/radios.

Hope this helps. Sorry if it is bad news for you.
