I have used Musicmatch Jukebox for years to download and burn mp3s to a CD. I have always used CD-R CDs. All of a sudden when I go to play the CDs, they aren't compatible with the same players I've always played them on. For instance, my Bose surround sound gives me the message of: format unsupported. It has always been my understanding that CD-R's played on anything, and up until now, they have. Is there a setting I can change to rectify this matter? Thanks in advance for your help.
