Dolby-compatible stereo that plays CD-R's?

As the new owner of a '99 C70 with the 901 stereo, I am stunned that a
unit with such advanced features as the station/song text mode (I forget
the acronym for that at the moment) can't do something as basic as play a
CD-R!

What units are out there - Volvo or not - that will interface with the
C70's wiring harness and Dolby-surround speaker package and play CDRs?
Thanks.

Are you saying:
A: it doesn't have a CD drive in the radio or
B: it won't play recorded CD's in the CD drive?

I can't help you for A... Don't know what fits your car.

As for B, I haven't seen a CD player made this century that won't play
CD format recorded CD's.
Are your recorded CD's in MP3 format? There are still a lot of players
that won't play MP3 format CDr's. Try re-encoding them as CD format and
they will play.

Probably so, but as I stated I want one that is compatible with the C70's
dolby speaker package, so I need (presumably) a Volvo OEM unit or an
after-market one designed specifically for Volvos.

No. Audio CDs that play fine in every other device I own (standalone,
DVD, discman, computer, marine CD unit, even laserdisc player).

....these may all be MP3 compliant devices. Not all that unusual these days.
Have you looked at the CD's on your PC to see if they are CD format or MP3?
Where'd you get the CD's? Kids burn them for you? They might have
grabbed a bunch of stuff (MP3's) for their iPods and put them on a disk.

This may very well not be the problem but if we keep this topic up at
the top, maybe an expert will jump in and solve it... *g*

Its a common problem on the SC-901, some say you can fix it by burning the
CDs at slowest speed, x1.
I have 6 cd Volvo changer in the trunk, it takes CDRs.

Only the SC-900 and SC-901 can connect to the dolby sorround amplifier.

The Volvo stereo in my '99 V70 XC (non-Dolby surround) wouldn't play
half of my CD-Rs either. I replaced it with a Pioneer, since they'll
play anything.

You might check with the guys at the Audio Forum here regarding what
works with your surround processor:

Try decent blanks, a better burner, slower speed and investigate what
program is being used for the copies. How the copies are done can effect if
they will work in "sensitive" players.
