CD's won't play on Home & Car stereo after Burning

\015 Hi,my recently Burnt CD's won't play on Home & Car stereo after Burning in Mp3 & Wav formats,I ripped a CD then Burnt it and it wouldnt play on home stereo (which is 10 years old as is the Car stereo)then I downloaded it in Mp3 and burnt and that wouldnt play on either as well ? Is it me or wont older CD players recognize files ? I use computer as stereo but these are for my parents. Many thanks in advance D\015

Answers :

I may add alot of times older equipment has a hard time reading burned cd's because when ever burning cd's the pits that are burnt into the cd are shallow. The faster the cd burns the more shallow it is... one thing you can try to do is burn at 2x in the WAV format cause it most diffenately will not read mp3 format being that old equipment. You may get lucky burning at 2x because the pits that it burns in the cdrom will be deeper. As the clarification said do use CD-R's. If this doesn't work at 2x chances are that equipment is just not going to be able to read a burnt cd period. Good Luck!!! I hope this works for you!!!
