Problems with playing music from CD-RW

Whenever I transfer music to a CD-RW I can't play it in a normal household cd player or my truck, is there some particular speed I need to record at or maybe buying the wrong one's. When the wizard pops up and prompts me to chose audio format or data format, I chose audio and still can't play. I have a 48x CD-RW with sonic recordnow and windows xp home.

Thanks alot,

This is normal, most cd-players can't play CD-RW discs, I think you won't have the same problem with CD-R disks. This is because a CD-RW isn't burned as deep as a CD-R, so the reader has to be more precise to be able to read them.

For your truck, you might want to take a look at => http://www.kelkoo.co.uk/b/a/ss_Audio_cdrw.html

And (I haven't tested it) I heard these kind of CD-RW's are more likely to get detected in normal audio systems => http://www.tapeandmedia.com/detail.asp?product_id=CWM74

The Five Tenets of the Most Secure Backup

Data loss can hit a business in any number of ways. In reality, companies should expect to lose data at some point. The challenge is having a plan to recover from such an event.

Lucf is right... Use only CD-R and you will find that most players will play them

Recommendation is also to record at 12x or less for music cds, PARTICULARLY  if playback is on an OLDER CD PLAYER system .... has to do with Lucf's comment "isn't burned as deep"..... (described as reflectivity in the article I read)

dxf224,
Yes, it has to do with that, I just don't know how to describe it in proper English.

Mark36001, just additional info. If you still wanna burn songs on CD-RWs then change your CD player to one that can read them. That depends on cash availability too :). If you were to get a new player, try to get one that can play MP3s too. Then you can burn those songs in and listen to them. When you get sick of them, erase and burn new ones. One CD-RW can last a long time. :)

Why on earth would you change your cd player to read cd-rws when you can just buy cd-rs and throw them away if you are tired of them. They are like $4 for a box of 10, or is that only in Norway? :)
