You can create an Audio CD if you chose that option. However, if you import your original CDs as mp3s, you can create a playlist and burn the CD as an mp3 CD (it gives you the option when you come to copying).

I have around 10 albums on one of my mp3 CDs (created in iTunes) and you don't have to worry about 'finalising' either, iTunes does it all for you!

Using a CD burning program and creating a 'Data CD' will allow ou to put many many more songs on, I use cdburnerxp, it's free and works on all version of windows, not just xp

CDBurnerXP: Create Data Disc - Easy how to, just make sure you select 'finalise' in the options at the end of he process.

Thanks everyone

Really good points made by you all,

Much appreciate it.

Thinking about it, theres a good chance it is the burning programme I'm using, can't recall what it's called off the top of my bonce, but it's some oldish programme that I don't think is a well known one...

I'll try with itunes tonight and report back my findings.

Thanks again.

Tom.

This works without fail in my car's CD player.

0507448n Forgot to say, CDs are CDs, they are all the same it wont make a difference.

GavChap You have to make a Data CD and make sure it's closed. Do not create a multi-session CD. Single session, and make sure you use the Joliet filesystem and finalise the disc. How easy this will be depends on what CD burning program you use.

0507448n Hi mate, have you got something like Roxio CD creator on your PC. It is a CD creator and formats the CD correctly therefore it could be played in the civic's CD player.

I dont think you can just drag and drop from "My Computer" to a blank CD. However, I have not tried it so dont quote me.

Playing MP3 CD on Standard CD Player guidance

Hi,

I've just recently purchased my Type S GT and have the standard CD player in built which is supposed to play MP3 CD's from what I understand.

Twice now I have tried burning a number of MP3's onto the CD, but upon trying to play them, both times I get an error reading CD message on the display. The first time I just made a 'data CD' and copied all of the MP3's onto the CD directly with no success. So I have since tried creating a folder and copying them into there again with no success.

The MP3's are definately on the CD as these can be seen through 'My Computer' and seem to play fine.

I feel like an idiot having to ask, but am I missing something? is there a setting I need to change somewhere.

Just asking before I try my next step which is to purchase some different CD's, and/or try burning these on a different computer.

As I say I think this is a stupid question, but just thought I'd try you guys in case I am missing the obvious?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Tom.
