I used to have Easy CD Creator w/ my old CD Burner and had no problems burning music CD's and then playing them in my truck's CD player.

Now that I've had to get a new burner (found out when I was reformatting my HD and reinstalling everything my old one went out on me) and it doesn't support EZCD, any music CD I've burned since won't play in my truck's player. They play fine on any computer CD player.

Is there an option or "switch" I've missed?

And these are out of print CD's that I'm burning so there is no copy protection on them to keep me from playing.

TIA!

You may be burning an ISO CD instead of an Audio CD, select Audio CD from the Nero Wizard not CD-ROM(ISO)

if they work in a computer and not in a stand alone player then they probably are not finalised or closed so the stand alone doesn't see it.

Are you doing a cd copy with nero or a compilation

Nero should default to closing the CD when you choose either Audio or Copy from the opening wizard. If you are selecting Audio check that you haven’t somehow elected to leave the CD open as dvk01 suggested. I doubt there is an option to leave the CD open with the Copy utility. And if it isn’t playing at all you likely didn’t try to use multi-session, but don’t use that.

Confirm you aren’t writing to re-writable (RW) media. That often will not play in entertainment players.

Some CD writers are picker than others about what media they will write to so it is playable in all players. Cyanine dye is the easiest for the laser to burn to but most of the poor quality media uses that dye. Sony, Fuji and Taiyo Yuden all make good quality cyanine blanks. You might try one of those.

I do (and always have) select Audio CD.

Burning MP3's from my hard drive. No cirect copy involved.

I do have finalize CD (or whatever Nero's program says) checked. That was the 1st thing I looked at when I found out I was having problems.

Correct, I'm not trying to write to CD-RW's.

I'ev used 2 different brands of CD-R's. Memorex 700 MB 80 min and some other brand (completely black CD even when burned there is no color change).

I have burned both brands using EZCD and no problems, but now with Nero, I mainly used the Memorex and noticed my problems.

Ummm...yer talking all greek to me about dye's n such. Any laymen's (or plain English) explaination for me? :rolleyes:

Try burning at a slower speed, for example at 8x. Some times the simplest of things solve big problems :)

Kmull: Well I told you what dye type is easiest to burn to and gave you the brands that are reliable which always use that dye. Not sure how I could make it less geeky. As far as English, I’m not sure what the translation for Sony, Fuji and Taiyo Yuden is.

I suspect the incompatibility is with the burner and not Nero. I think Memorex sometimes rebadges CDs made by CMC and some burners have problems with them. Staples have a 50 pack of Sonys this week for $3 after rebate. You might try some of those.

There are just sometimes problems getting certain brands of CDs to play in certain players using some burners. My old HP was really picky about what it would burn to so I could play it in all of my entertainment players. If you are recording as audio and closing the CD then your next step is to try some different CDs.
