Did you copy to a CD i.e. write once or a CDR (write many times) CDRs sometimes won't work on portable CD players and HiFis.

Sorry - should have said CDR = write once; CDRW = write many times. CDRWs are problematic with HiFis etc.

Gobeen, You should use a CDR for making music CDs. USe CDRW for storing stuff that you may want to write over or erase from the disk in the future. While A CDRW will play music on your PC they don't generally work on HiFis or in car CD players.

These tracks you copied on to your 'hard disk'

Where did you copy them from?

What files are they?

If you are trying to make a copy of a CD (music files) Go to My Computer, Explore the CD. Then Right click on the CD icon and send each file(track) to the 'Writable' Drive.

Then write those files to CD. Having placed a Writable CD in the Drive.

Some Software that can help...........

mjd is exactly right. CDReWritable disks do not play on most hifi's and portables. Use CDRecordable disks ONLY for this purpose....TT
