Windows Media Player messed up when burning my CDs

I know burning CDs is old school. Nobody burns cds anymore. But it's for my old 2005 Hyndai Elantra car that has a 10 disc changer cd player. I want to burn cds for my car. I have used windows media player and even iTunes to burn cds. I really use windows media player to burn cds. I made sure I was burning an audio cd and of course windows media player burns cd as a data cd instead of an audio cd. This is really annoying and frustrating. So now I use Power2go and its great. Power2go isn't free but it's worth the money. Power2go was able to burn cd as audio cd while windows media player could not. I made sure when auto play comes up when I insert cd in computer I click burn audio cd and it still burns as data cd. i don' understand that? BTW I use TDK CD-R discs.

How can I make a data cd work in my car cd player or how can I convert a data cd to audio cd?

If you want music, it has to be an audio CD. == I have used Windows Media Player many times. It always burns as an Audio CD. I don't even see an option to change it to a data CD. How do you know yours is burning as a data CD? == Open WMP and click on the Burn Tab. Does yours look like this with the words "Audio CD" below the Burn Tab?

I know if I want music it has to be a audio cd. That is not true. Windows Media player does not always burn as audio cd. Windows Media Player burned my cd as a data cd and that's why my car won't play my cds. I know windows media player is burning as data cd because when i play cd in other peoples cars the music files are shown in folders and not displayed as track 1 or track 2. That is how I know WMP is burning as data cd.

What type of files are you trying to burn to CD's in your WMP? What type of files does your car CD player use?

MP3 and M4A. The cd player in my Hyundai 2005 Elantra is the Sony CDX454RF. The Sony CDX454RF plays mp3 and m4a files.
