HS2002 - CD won't play in CD player

Postby dolph » Sun Jan 18, 2004 1:39 pm

I'm using CW HS2002. I've been having a problem creating a CD which is playable in an ordinary CD player. No problem in creating an Audio File and exporting ot to a wav file (44100 khz / 16 bit). I use NERO Burning ROM to write the wav file to a CD, and I do it as an Audio CD. The CD however only plays in my CD ROM with WIN Media File Player, but would not play in an ordinary CD player. Is it because I use a re-writable CD or is there something else I don't know about ?
Can anybody help please ?!

Some older cd players have this problem. Try it in a newer cd player.
The factory player in my volvo will sometimes refuse to take burned discs, sometimes it plays them fine - go figure!

It's because it's a rewritable CD. CD-RW wont play in normal CD players. At least this is what I've heard. I've never written to CD-RW myself because of this and therefore steered clear. A mate of mine had the same problem. When he mentioned rewritable it became clear why. Write to a CD-R and I bet it will play audio files ok.

Both of the above plus you are making a data and audio CD mixed. When playing in the PC CD drive it is actualy playing the wave file. Try just burning it as an audio only CD.
