View Full Version : Help to copy music CDs, please
Hi - I use Windows Vista and I have a DVD-CD-R/W combo drive that I use to try to copy music CDs for personal use. Whatever program I use - Roxio, Yahoo, or Windows Media Player - it always says "Burn Successful" and the tray pops open. The copy plays fine on this computer, but when I try to play it on my RCA CD changer, it says "Not a CD" and when I use it in the car, it says "Err". The CD changer is only a couple years old, and the car is a 2002 Cavalier - so they're not that old. If anybody else has this problem or knows what's wrong, I'd like to hear from you. I get tired of imposing on my friend who still has XP and never has a problem writing his music to disk. His tracks play everywhere.
Some CD players don't play .mp3 files.
Maybe you could try converting your .mp3 to wave before trying them on your CD Player. :wve:
1. What CD-player do you use?
2. To play a CD on most CD-players you need to write on 1-2x speed. Some HiSpeed CDs won't be read even in this case.
Therefore I need to know the CD-player model and number first :)
It's an RCA model RS-2640 CD carousel changer.
Use simple CD-R/RW (not HiSpeed, better CD-R), write on 1x speed. Can't find info about MP3 compatibility... Is there any MP3 label on it's front panel?
CD-RW's don't work at all in most normal CD players. Use CD-R's if you haven't already :)
I'll try the 1x write speed. I only use CD-R disks, never RW disks. The player
will play MP3s, but I never use that format. Only copy the store-bought CDs for
backup and personal convenience. I'll let you know how it works in a couple days.
