    I have a CD-R and some disks.
    I have also got a CD Player in my car.

    I have been told that although my car is a good one the CD players in all cars are 'cheapy' and only read certain cd-r's.
    Well this person is right! It wont read a music file I copyed.

    Can anyone share some tips on how to copy music onto a CD and get it to work in the car?
    Also if anyone can do it, do you mind telling me the brand of the CD-R's you use please?

    Thank you so much, Darren.
    I wasn't going to buy it in the first place, so me downloading it for free isn't losing them any money.

    first off ...what kind of cd player do you have in your car? i have a 4 year old pioneer that works fine for cd-r's. all the newer car raidos will play burned cd-r's, and most will play mp3 cd's. i think the best cd-r to use are memorex ,they work for whatever i am burning

    Are you sure you burn them files as audio? Not as Data?

    Well I have a BMW car I am not to sure of the CD player in it.
    I copy some mp3s into Windows Media Player and click 'Copy To CD' which copys them as CD state, See these files will work on my CD Player indoors just not on my car.

    maybe you should get a new cd player for your car, make sure it supports burned cd's.

    Alot of older cd players,and especially car cd players,will not play burnt cd's.

    yes I will try a new CD player. No it isnt a old car it's brand new well nearly. it's a BMW Z4 Roadster.

    Do you think I should take it to the manufacturs and ask them to fit a top of the range CD player?

    Ok thanks for all the advice and help guys it means alot to me

    Just one more thing, does anyone have any more advice in the way of what burning software to use and if there's a special way I need to use to make it increase the chance of it working in my car.
