Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Note that, even if your car doesn't have a "line in" port, there are adapters that can play through your car's cassette player (if it has one), or have a tiny FM transmitter that your car radio can receive.
Or, when you're buying a car, see if they have an MP3-compatible CD player available. (Given that portable CD players with MP3 ability are only about 10 dollars more than ones without, I can't imagine that the car manufacturers won't start including that ability soon.)
Actually, I use a cassette adapter, which works relatively well. I've been through about three FM transmitters and my experience was that they all pretty much suck. :-(
I had the same problem. I dont know much about formats and I do not have Roxio. My solution was simple. I switched from the CD-W to a CD-R. Then the music i burned played on all my CD players, even the car
When I record from my cassette player through my sound card it plays back through only one speaker. I'm using stereo jacks. What am I doing wrong?
I have burned CD-Rs that will play in my personal car's cd player and computer but won't play in an Acura's Boise 1998 system. What format should I use to burn CD-Rs or what media should I use to burn audio disks for the Boise?
Hi, I downloaded music on iTunes and want to burn a CD for the car. I have tryed CD-r, audio format 4 x speed with 3 sec between but can't get the car to see it. I am using the default format of iTunes to download the music. My old computer had Roxio but this computers burn software doesn't see the songs I downloaded. I am frustrated!!! What do I do. Thanks for ANY help. Joan
My car will play the cd-r that I record in audio format, but as the disc continues, the quality gets worse until it skips and cannot be understood at all. This happens progressively, beginning at about 25 minutes in. Any clues for me would be very welcome. I am burning with NTI CD Maker Gold on verbatim cd-r blanks on a dvd writer that says compact re-writable ultra speed + (system says it is a Sony CD-RW crx320e)
I have read this artikel and I have to say, Leo is talking around the soupbowl. Look at the extensions of the song files of a Cd which you bought in a store. You'll see .cda. If you use any burning software, no matter which one, if it can burn audio cd's, you will see the same extension. Why didn't Leo explain that? By the way, there are many free audio burning softwares out their. Look in Major Geek or Freedownloads you'll find pleny. And yes, you do have to use CD-R. Also, depending what CD drive you have, you have to finish that cd. If you open the drive before the cd is full, it will 'close' that cd and you wont be able to write more songs on it.

Any speed your burner is capable of should work just fine if
you use reasonably good blank media.
