Hi guys... maybe this question is not for this topic, but I hope you could guide me.

For many year I've been burning legally (don't laugh) music CDs. It's been very usuall that not every CD Player or CD-portable Walkmans can reproduce them just fine. All the CD devices in any computer I've tested can play them, but not all other CD players. It sounds with noises or cannot even display the track counter.

I have some CDBurning programs that lets me choose from a wide variety of burning options (Jouliet, ISO, speed).

My question is: Wich are the better options to burn a more backward compatible Audio-CD?

Thanks

The problem you are having with some CD-AUDIO players is that their hardware is not compatible with the CD-R media.  Some older players, which were designed before the specifications for the CD-R media was developed, don't have enough sensitivity in their electronics to play CD-R disks.  It's a basic design problem in the hardware of the player and there is no sure-fire fix.

One thing that you can try is to use a DIFFERENT brand or GRADE of CD-R.  Some have significantly better reflectivity than others.  In particular, I've found that cheap ones work the worst for audio.  I've had excellent results with Kodak DATALIFE GOLD and similar CD-R media.  

In general, the darker the color of the writable side of the disk the WORSE they seem to work in older CD-Audio drive.
