Windows 7: Problem burning music CD's

ONTOPIC: How old is your car, depending on the car and its radio firmware/hardware it may be able to play MP3s on a CD, maybe not. If it's from about the mid-XP era or later (2004+) I'd probably safely assume it would work since that's when it kinda became more and more popular to burn CDs with MP3s. Also, make sure you burn your CDs at a lower rate if they're cheap bought ones, if they're premium quality it probably won't matter to the speed:quality ratio.

Also, seconded on CDBurnerXP. I always found it nicer to use than ImgBurn.

Car is 2005, I bought it used 2 years ago, and at some point the original radio/CD player had been replaced. I hadn't used the CD player till a few weeks ago, which is why the problem just appeared recently on some CDs.


I understand about the slower burn speed.
Player is Sony cd3xgt310, manual is copyrighted 2006.
I have now asked this 3 times, with no reply. Should I convert my tracks to .wav instead of mp3?

Switched to CDBurnerXP (yes, compat with 7 and 8,) it can burn at 8x, and the files are turned into cda's. Resolved.

I see you got it sorted out.

I thought I answered your question about converting to wav first. If you want regular audio CD's that requires burning a wav file. However, many audio CD burning programs will convert an MP3 to wav for you. Thus if the program that you are using to burn converts then there is no need to do it first.

One comment on an MP3 file. It is "something less than full fidelity", where a wav file is full fidelity. However converting an MP3 to wav does not restore the full fidelity, the converted wav file will still be at the fidelity of the MP3.

Ahh, I'm not exactly an expert in cars, I was kinda going by old memory which probably has failed me :P

Anyhow. CDAs are probably a little bit like cue sheets for data I guess. They basically point to where the data/track is on disc.
I don't know how else to explain it because I don't fully know but rereading your post the CDs should work in your car and play fine :)

Oh, you sorted it out. Didn't see that :P glad CDBXP works for you :)
As for that question, don't. It won't make a quality difference, it won't restore anything. MP3 is a pretty poor format in terms of quality at lower than 256kbps unless you're using some fancy compression like LAME, tbh... if you're ripping audio CDs try AAC or FLAC, can't remember if these are supported by CDBXP

Just for clarification ...

What is CDA? What Opens a CDA? File Format List from WhatIs.com

a WAV file is a proprietary format developed By Microsoft for Game and System Audio, it can of course be used for Music audio

Flac is a lossless format designed specifically to retain Quality for Digitised sound - Of course the format is much larger than the MP3 format, although most people in a vehicle with ancillary ambient noise will not really notice the loss of audio quality of MP3. FLAC - Wikipedia

Good enough for my car. I'm way past the age when I worried about such things.

Many thanks to you all.
