Re: Volvo SC-901 stereo won't play CD-R's
> "Early"? CDs debuted in 1983. This is a 1999 car!
Yes, but you're trying to mix different formats if you recorded the
music files as a DATA (not the emphasis, not a shout!) cd-rom. The
car's player is probably only wired/programmed for music cd's, which
use a different format for storing the data.
Sort of like trying to put a MAC-formatted floppy into a PC and
vice-versa -- if the unit can handle both, you're in joy-city; if not,
Try recording the files as a MUSIC cd if your writer program permits
My wife's previous car (non-Volvo) couldn't handle a cd-rom with music
files. Her 2001 S40 plays them, but there is a definite quality
difference due to the conversion between media and the sampling rates.
