Windows 7: Burnt disks won't play on a CD player.

Burnt disks won't play on a CD player.

When I download a video music file from YouTube, and save it to the hard drive, I can burn it to a CD-R disk. The disk will then play on other computers, but won't play on any of my CD players. What's wrong ? What do I need to do ?

How or what are you burning? If you have the audio saved as a .wav and burn a "regular" audio disc it must be burned at the slowest speed or some older audio CD players will not play them. I have a recording studio and do a lot of audio CD burning and my "standard" is 8X.

On the other hand if you created an MP3 file and then an MP3 disc, unless the CD player has MP3 capability it won't play on an audio CD player.

Finally if you just used the Windows burning and "dragged" the audio file to Disc, it created a "data" CD and those are not "audio" CD's.

I think the problem is that the files are downloading as a video file and the cd player can't read it. I don't have a choice of file formats when I download for some reason. The solution will be to download a file converter program.

What extension is on your downloaded file?

Control Panel > Appearance & Personalization > Folder Options > view > uncheck Hide extensions of known file types.

You won't be able to pop this disk into a CD player and play it. It needs to have some video playback software in order for it to play. It's a video file, not an audio file, and so it will never play in a standard CD player.

Rather than extract the entire YouTube video, extract only the audio portion, and save it as an MP3 file. Most modern CD players will play an MP3 file. But in order to make sure it plays on all CD players, burn a standard CD from the MP3 file. That standard CD will play on ALL CD players.

My download files seem to have the extension: .js.download

Can you recommend a good file conversion program ?

You can use Windows Media Player. It is easy to use either for burning CDs, or for RIPping the music from CDs into MP3 files.

Windows Media Player is located in Accessories.
  • Run the program.
  • Click the Burn tab (top right of the window).
  • Insert a blank CD.
  • Close the Autoplay popup window (if one appears).
  • On the right side of the window is the Burn list. Open File Explorer and drag some MP3 files into the burn list using either your left or right mouse button.
  • Once you have put what you want into the burn list, click Start Burn (at the top, above the Burn list).
That's all there is to it.
