    Mp3 Burning/reading Problem

    Every time i burn an MP3 it will not read on my MP3 player on my cd player it will only read for some reason in my comp under Windows Media Player... at first i thought it was because i had to many songs or to much time on the disk so i only put around 5 to 10 songs and it still would not read. i have went through over 15 blank CD'z tryin i just quit trying and thought i would ask if any 1 had a suggestion to why it will not burn properly. Could it be my cd drive?
    Or is it that they are all WMA files? Is there a way to change that if needed? And how it says .WMA is there a particular name and way i need to change it to?

    Burn it as audio, problem solved.
    Is there a sum of an inifinite geometric series? Well, that all depends on what you consider a negligible amount.

    Only cd players that can read mp3 CD's, can read data CD's. Normal CD player (older ones) can only read audio CD's....

    Hmmmm...can an MP3 player read a WMA file?? In most cases the answer is no, although some of the high-end HDD based players (IPOD, Archos, etc) can read WMA files. In short, the problem is that you are burning the wrong format for a CD/MP3 player to read.

    Actually he is suppose to burn it as data, if the "MP3 player" won't read it then most likely it isn't an MP3 player, check the manual and burn it as Audio so you can play it on your CD player hope it helps

    1. He has tried an MP3 player...

    2. He has tried a standard CD player...

    3. It will only open with Windows Media Player...


    I'm still going with the WMA format being the culprit here.
