Burned Cd's

I have a single factory cd player in my AU. I have trouble getting burned cd's to work well in the car. The cd's seem to work ok in other cars (e.g. a work Acclaim).

CD's used to work fine in the car so I dont know if the cd player needs some sort of cleaning or if I am using the wrong settings when I am burning the cd's. I use NEro software on an LG burner.

Any ideas or suggestions?? Similar experiences??

Re: Burned Cd's

Some players dont like certain kinds of media and some wont play c.d.r's at all. Are you using c.d.r's? or c.d.r.w? Also try a few different brands of blanks. Hope that helps.

Re: Burned Cd's

Nero shouldn't be the problem, and if you used to be able to play burnt CDs in there it shouldn't be the type of CD that is the problem (unless you are using CD-RWs now). Most likely you will need the CD player to be serviced because the laser might be a bit out of synch.

What brand of CD (eg Imation, TDK etc.) and what type (eg CD-R, CD-RW) are you trying to play?

Try some different brands of CD. Burn the CDs at the slowest speed you can, make sure there are gaps between the songs (my CD player doesnt like it too much when I reduce the gap to 0, has trouble finding tracks when I skip.

Re: Burned Cd's

All sounds good. Imation ones seem to be the best. I am using Imation CD-R Music ones at the moment and seem to work, but use a bit of think time before it starts to play.

Re: Burned Cd's

I would just buy an aftermarket HU. for around $300 you could be listening to MP3's. JVC have got some out around that price range. I know Pioneer start from about $450 onwards. Aftermarket HU's play burnt CD's heaps better, and they last longer than the crap that comes standard IMO. Imitation and TDK are the better brands to use, stay clear of silver tops and laser disc's though.

Re: Burned Cd's

As I think other people have said, its the brand of CD you use, thats what Iv found, Iv also found the Kodak's work the best and will play on almost anything.

I haven't had any probles with burnt CDRs in my AU, but how do you finalise a CD? Does Nero do it automatically?
