  1. I apologise if this is posted in the wrong section.
    I have windows xp, HP dual core media centre pc 1 g memory.
    I'm using roxio (sonic) software to burn mp3's to CD.
    They work properly on my computer and my home CD player.
    However sometimes they play in my car stereo and sometimes they are rejected.
    using new cd-r discs.
    My car is a 2000 acura.
    is it possible that my car cd player's technology is out of date?
    Thanks in advance for any help.
    ( i have jolson records and others that I'm dying to play on my car stereo)

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Try running a cd lense cleaner through your car`s cd player and see if that helps.

    If it doesn`t, then it`s either a compatibility issue, or your car`s cd player is on it`s way out.

    cd player

    look up the model your cd player is and find out what technology it has

    Also, check on the compression quality of the mp3's that won't play on ur car.

    Thank you for your replies.
    I will try the cd lense cleaner first and then go from there because my cds sometimes play and sometimes don't so i assume it has nothing to do with compression etc,or am I mistaken about that.
    Thanks again,it's appreciated.

    You may have a defective car battery - it may not be supplying enough power to the laser. Try cleaning first since a new battery will cost more and is not guaranteed to fix the problem. You can pick up a lense cleaner kit from almost anywhere these days for around $8.
