    LOL! I still have cassettes and vinyl, not to mention VHS and CD's.

    I find that if I convert .mp3 to .wav and then burn to a CD-R, I can play the disc in any player, or at least I haven't found any that won't play the discs. I did try burning .wav files on to a CD-RW once and found that that disc wouldn't play in most CD players or DVD players.

    First off many thx for all your contributions to my question. I went off the network for a few weeks and was so pleasantly surprised at all the responses.

    I have, with your help, worked it all out now.

    It is certainly true that to make an AUDIO CD it requires 44100 Hz/ 16 bit (as opposed to what i was doing - MP3) though after further reading found that creating a CUE file format completed the deal. It now all works in my car-car:) and I can give one away to my girlfriend who really likes the tracks...

    So thx again to all for sharing.

    There was a similar post from someone having a problem getting mp3 tracks from a USB stick to play. I'll repost my reply here as I had problem with the CD's as well :

    I was having some problems with podcast mp3's playing in my car's factory CD player too. Some tracks played but the disc and track names were often garbled on the display. Some files, from one podcast source, always gave errors and would not play at all. Here is what I found to correct the problems :

    - Make sure that you burn a Data disc, not an audio disc. Don't use Windows to burn discs; get a good, free burner like CDBurnerXP

    - Make sure that your tags use ID3V2.3 ISO-8859-1 and not UDF ( I use MP3tag to edit my tags ). This solved the garbled text displayed.

    - For some reason, removing all of the cover art made the unreadable files readable again and now they play just fine. It also made the transition from track to track much quicker in the car.

    Hope that helps someone.

    Yep, because sometimes its just easier to slip in a CD than sitting and mucking or fiddling about with playlists and touchscreens on a cell phone or mp3 player in traffic.

    Same here. Most of the vinyl I haven't replaced with CDs is because it was never released on CD or in mp3. Never bought prerecorded cassettes, never sounded as good as what I recorded myself off vinyl or CD. Looooved making mixtapes.

    Same goes with my small library of VHS, all videos never put out on DVD or BluRay.
