Windows 7: MP3 ripped mucis wont play in car CD

MP3 ripped mucis wont play in car CD

DID a rip of favorite music and it plays fine on my tower computer but not in the car's cd. When I insert the Cd (in the car) it acknowledges its, CD trk 1, will do a search but when playing a track there is no music. Any ideas? The radio is a Blaupunkt 520. Thx

Many car players won't play mp3s on a data disc, where you might put 230 songs of 3 MB each on a disc holding about 700 MB---using 690 of the 700 MB.

They will play only discs burned as music discs where the capacity is measured in minutes, about 80 minutes. So you'd have maybe 25 songs of maybe 3 minutes each---using 75 of the 80 minutes.

Either type will play in a PC.

I have no idea in which category your head unit fits, but that would be my first idea.

Car head units that will play only music discs were the most common type until the last few years. Most recent head units will play mp3s on data discs.

If you don't know which type of head unit you have, look in the manual or talk to Blaupunkt. Manuals are typically poor with insufficient information, so Blaupunkt customer service or Google search may be your best move.

This is from the manual on the 520:

4. 'CD ERROR' (after CD loading): CD
cannot be read anymore; after displaying
'CD ERROR' the radio ejects the CD.
Check if CD was loaded upside down
(the label surface should be facing
upwards). This message may also be
displayed if a CD is dirty or scratched.
Inspect the CD surface for problems and
clean if necessary. ***** "CD ERROR" will also
be seen when try to play e.g. MP3 CD, *****
Video CD, DVD or CD-ROM.

You want to try and rip to "audio cd" or similar name depending on your ripping program.
Even then, you may be out of luck.

Burn mp3 to CD

Well if the mp3's play fine when listening on your computer but don't play in your car take a look at the advice here:

Burning music files to a CD - Audacity Manual

Then adjust the settings for your CD burning software.

Note the following:

Audio CDs always contain uncompressed PCM stereo audio at 44100 Hz sample rate, 16-bit sample format. So to burn an audio CD, export the file(s) you want to burn as a 44100 Hz 16-bit stereo WAV or AIFF file.

I burn a lot of Audio CD's. Either from recording sessions in my studio or repeat business. In the last 6 weeks I've burned almost 200 audio CD's. I even bought a Primera Bravo Disc printer 2 months ago due to the volume (and Epson printers, that print on CD's seem to last about 2 years and then start going flakey).

What type of ink does the Primera Bravo Disc printer use? Do you still have to use the "printable CDs"? My Brother J870 prints CDs but you have to use the white printable discs. I tried printing on a standard disc after cleaning it with alcohol but it just beaded up and after three days the ink still wasn't dry. The printable discs work great though.

The Primera Bravo uses a proprietary ink cartridge (all in one). How long it lasts depends on the labels printed. Full color and it obviously won't last as long as black lettering. I got about 100 discs out of the original ink cartridge. Replacements are around $45. The price of the ink is included in my price for discs.

You have to use "ink jet printable" discs. I only use JVC Taiyo Yuden ink jet printable discs for my clients. They are considered, by most, to be the best on the market. The ones I use are marked "for professional use" but I suspect that is just a marketing ploy.

I have a bank of 5 USB connected PATA CD/DVD burners. They will burn audio CD's at 8X, my burn standard. Using Nero Burning ROM, I can burn 5 discs at a time.
