    Using roxio creator 5 with updates. I have never and still have no problem copying music CD's, etc. Now I am trying to take some MP3 files and make music CD's. I have tried the music CD project and Soundstream - I have tried track at once and finalize the CD and Disk at once methods. Problem: The CD is created and each track is visible afterwards in my PC drives and in my car but.....no audio is present. I have tried every combo of options to figure this out. The burner is working fine, I can make a cd from a cd with audio no problem. Any advice or obvious issues that I'm missing? thanks!

    I have now tried two CD-R brands, Maxell and Imation with the same results. The files are created as Track01.CDA, 02, etc. with file creation dates of ?Sunday, January 01, 1995?.

    I just copied the entire 9 tracks to my hard drive first. Same result when burning to the CD. But.... when I try to preview the songs from the xxx.CIF file on the hard drive, no sound either. So it's not the burning process, it's something to do with the file extraction???

    ahhhh, thought I had it. I used Cakewalk Pyro to convert the MP3's to WMA files. They play fine off the hard drive. But,,, copying them to the CD-R...the files go as Track01, etc. but no audio! I'm going crazy.

    One thing you don't have to worry about rshook is converting the mp3's as Easy CD does that in the process of burning.

    One thing that may help someone else answer is more details. System specs soundcard etc.....

    Burn your MP3 files as a Data CD. Try that on a CD-RW if you wish to test it first.
