Burned music will not play on portable

By nebheprura ·
How do I guarantee that the music I download off of the internet onto CD-R's will work when played in car stereo, portable radio, etc? I burned some music and it plays fine on DVD player, computer, and stereo, but will not work in car stereo or portable radio. What do I do during the burn method to insure it works for everything. I use NERO and TDK digital mixmaster.

How old are the two CD players that don't work?

If they are over 5 years old they may be what was called "green book" standard which may not work with the common "red book" or multimedia standard of CDs.

With Nero when you burn you have the option to put text on the CD (name it) but there is a check box to disable this (it will just show up as "Audio CD". I have burned CD's that work when this is unchecked that didn't work when checked on our older CD player.

Still looking for help with this. I don't want to simply waste cd-r's at will. It really sucks not to be able to listen wherever you are. If anyone has any idea on how to ensure great copies, please respond!
