CD-RW Not recognised

  m800afc 03:52 16 Feb 2007

I have made compilations of my old vinyl 45's and burned them to cd with no problems. I tried the same using a CD-RW disc, but my CD player does not recognise the CD-RW, and so does not play it. How do I overcome this problem.

Hi, stick to using CD-Rs, most players do not like CD-RWs, plus they are not very reliable.
Hope this helps.

As The Old Mod says, use CD-R if you want to play them on a CD player of any sort. CD-RW have never worked on any of my CD players.

Sorry to rub it in but as other replies RW's generally will only work on the machine that created them with the original writing software.Not any other.
I've got half a box in the back of the cupboard been there years, cant give 'em away.

I binned my CDRWs as I found they became unreadable very easily.
The guys are entirely right in what they say. Most hifis will nor read CDRW disks, that is the problem. If you use standard write one CDRs you will have much more success.
If you have backed up music to CDRW from vinyl I would copy them onto CDR as soon as you can before the disks have problems.
