Burned CD's wont play in stereo!

By dartfrogs404 ·
I'm attempting to burn audio cd's using a Sony CRX-185E3 burner. Using Memorex Data CD-R's (i've had success with these in the past), my stereos can't seem to read them (CD-R compatible, not CD-RW or MP3). I've tried several different programs, I disabled my anti-virus program, and made the drive Secondary Master with no other drives attached. Computer reads them fine. I tried some old cd's I burned a long time ago in the stereos and they play fine.

I'm using Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 1 is installed.

HELP!

Try burning at a slower speed. I find 4X is pretty good for older cd players. It may take longer but it is a higher quality burn.
Good luck!

I have to agree with bohicam, for cd players 4X or 2X speeds for burning seems to take care of the problem. Makes you wonder what you bought a 40X writer for though doesn't it? Normally anything you burn with faster burners is readable with pc's and fail when it comes to stereo equipment since they require a higher standard than computers where we are used to programs and operating systems not working so we add programming tolerance into our cd rom reading.
Good luck

Many audio CD players require that you close the CD, and not just the session.

Check the settings for the recording session, and make sure that they are set to close the CD.
