estecman -> Mp3 cd for car player-major headaches!!!!!! (6/20/2002 7:34:45 AM)
You guys are my only hope, this is driving me crazy!!
Basically, I am burning Mp3's onto Cd's to play in my car cd/mp3 reader/player.
When I burn a cd of Mp3's with my HP8200 USB burner, the car player see's the disk no problems and plays fine.
BUT when I use my internal Toshiba SDR-2102 cdr/dvd combo drive to burn the SAME Mp'3 on the same disks then I get problems. It seems the car player thinks the disk is a wav. disk(guessing here) as it takes 10 reloads of the disk before it see's it as Mp3, otherwise it plays it like a wav, just static!!!!
I can rule out lots of problems here:
a) I have tried lots of different disks 70/80/ CDR/CDRW no difference
b) my mate has the same car player and it's the same for him, so its not the car player.
c) I have burned at ALL speeds!
d) I have tried different Mp3's.
e) and it always works if I use my HP burner???!
f) I have tried 10 different ways to burn and different software!
The only two things that are left are the Toshiba burner(noise on lead-in????) or my laptop(no idea)
Please if you know an answer or have any logical ideas please tell me soon!!!!
Thankyou in advance!
