    I burnt an Audio CD using windows media player but neither my CD player or car stereo will play it. Ive tried both CD-R and CD-RW and my CD player says on it it will play both types of CDs and MP3.
    I am using Vista.

    What media are you using? (Sony and Memorex are the worst)

    Buy quality media like verbatim cds or ridata...

    Also burn them at the max speed your burner supports.... cds like to be burt fast... unlike some dvds...


    Also check for a firmware update @ www.firmwarehq.com

    Try different burning software. If you don't have any get CDBurnerXP, a good freeware burning program.

    Burn an Audio CD and finalize the disc.

    What's the format of the files you're trying to burn?

    You need to make sure you get .CDA files, and finalize the disc. Burn in Audio-CD mode.
