: CDs you burned - are they playing in the factory CD players?

I was bummed to see that a CD that a friend burned for me will not play in my Isuzu Trooper's CD player. I've never been happy with my Trooper's CD player anyway. Skips or just doesn't play a lot of the time.

I wonder - is there a similar issue with the Element? It's a later generation of audio than my 2000 Trooper has, and one might hope that this problem has been solved.

This is getting to be a burning :wink: issue with me because I want to make a great CD to start off my Element experience. We're talking ALL the good tunes.

Probably first song on the first CD I'll play: "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Tears for Fears.

If you weren't around for when that song came out, I just can't explain it. You'll have to take it on faith.

So far the CD's that were burned have all played on my CD player in my Element.

The first cd I played was Emerson Lake and Palmer - a burnt copy as I try very hard not to have originals in the truck. Played like a charm.

VERY cool.

Let's see, I'll make all my good mixes --

Relaxation Mix - soothing for traffic jams
and
Pre-Renaissance choral works - in case I don't make it to church
and
of course
DANCE YOUR BUTT IN YOUR CAR SEAT AND SING ALONG LOUDLY Mix

Whee!

Oh dude, I can't tell you how much I used to love Emerson, Lake & Palmer. I worshipped them. Some of their music has still held up pretty well, too.

All the CD's I've burned have worked. I do have a problem if I've put more than 65 Minutes worth of music. It'll get 'lost' at the end of the CD and replay the last song, very wierd. I do find that the slower I burn a disc the better. 12x max, 4x best. I also use data discs for music. All in all home made CD's work just fine.

They work great in mine, both in dash and in the changer. I use a TDK VeloCD, burning at max speed (48x).

Great choice for the first cd and song there, TLHC, Songs from the Big Chair is such a classic. You're right, it is one of those pieces of music that transport you to a specific slice of time in the past. Mine is particularly fun since I lived in Hawaii at the time... 8)

I've had no problems with burned CDs. I've tried duplicates of full discs as well as converted MP3 compilations and everything works great. My Paul Taylor / Dave Koz / Richard Elliot jazz sax compilation never strays far from the E!

I would hate to say but....it sounds like more of a problem with how your burning them. Once I got my CD burner, i've never bought anything under an 80min disc....and i have yet to have any problems. I actually made car copies of all most all my "car" CD's (to keep the originals from getting messed up or stolen) I would check what your burning with. Normally i use Nero (good interface and it can doooo so much)

Yeah,

I burn all my cd's at 40x with Verbatim blue 80 minute CDR's on a Sony recorder - no coasters, no playback problems, no compatibility issues - ever.

It just works.
