Are you burning them on CD-Rs or CD-RWs?  Some cd players may not recognize the latter...

Hi janet1faq,

Well as sirbounty said
but since you say some of it plays...

You may be burning them too fast for the media rating.
If the CD-R disk is rated at 10x and you are burning at 20x you will get data errors.
This will cause them not to play or stop playing.

There is an adjustment for media speed in burn software.

burn them at lower speeds than they are rated. I NEVER burn audio CD faster than 4X . Audio CD Players , compared with the computer CD Plasyers are MUCH more sensitive about CDs burnt at high speeds.

A LOT OF TIMES IF YOU TRY TO BURN THE CD'S AT A LOWER SPEED AND YOU STILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM, YOU WILL NEED TO TRY DIFFERENT MEDIA. MOST CD PLAYERS ARE DIFFERENT AND HAVE TROUBLE READING MEDIA THAT IS LIGHTER OR DARKER. TYPICALLY YOU WILL FIND THAT CD PLAYERS OLDER THEN 2 YEARS WILL HAVE DIFFICULTYS WITH THIS ISSUE.


TRY USING DIFFERENT TYPES OF MEDIA, MAKE SURE THAT YOU CHECK THE ONE YOU ARE CURRENTLY USING, AND BUY A KIND THAT IS EITHER LIGHTER TO DARKER THEN WHAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY USING.
