    I can't seem to successfully burn an mp3 CD that the car stereo will read, everytime it states "error cd".

    I burn only mp3 files in no more than 6 root folders. Using Vista drag and drop to the disc and closing the session before ejecting.

    Any ideas?

    Make sure you burn a data CD not an MP3 CD...

    Are you sure you have an mp3 playing cd player???

    Does the headunit say "MP3" on it???

    Early models didn't have MP3 players....

    Sorry to resurrect and old thread.. But did this problem get sorted?

    I have tried MP3 CD's in my car that haven’t worked... but I also have one that does work (getting a bit sick of it now lol) So mine is definitely is MP3 compatible..

    Can anyone tell me what discs they use that do work? Perhaps its the disc that is the problem??

    Thanks muchly :)

    The disc has to be burned as a data CD and use Nero to create the disc as its the best method. Also make sure the Disc is Finalized at the end by ticking the box.

    Thank you, but yes, I have used Nero, data CD and ensured the disc is finalised.

    I suspect its the actual disc is the issue as some work and some dont.

    Can anyone tell me what brand discs are used that work and I can try and eliminate that one!

    Cheers

    Use a good quality disc like verbatim.

    Make sure the disc isn't using Multisession and IIRC it should use ISO 9660 + Joliet with 8+3 filenames.

    Thanks all, it was the disc causing problems. Bought some Verbatim and it now works! :D:D

    I have a question. Since my car plays MP3 discs just fine, can I actually divide the songs into folders and choose which one to play in the car and stuff? Thanks.

    Yes, you can put them in folders and play the songs in each folder.

    Oh wow! That's very nice to know. Thanks. By the way, I'm talking about the non-touch screen stereo.

    Guys, is this the same with iTunes?

    Because I burnt a cd (as MP3) for my Niece that she plays in her Audi A3, but it doesn't play in her boyfriends Merc stereo?

    If I burn it as a data cd will it work maybe?

    I don't think there's a difference between a data and a MP3 disc, if the data disc contains only music. Have you tried using a different type of CD? As stated earlier in the thread, Verbatim is one of the best brands you could get. And does it read Audio and other MP3 (non-iTunes created) CDs fine?
