Buner problem

  thamesside 11:43 04 Jun 2010

Windows Vista, LG cd/dvd/bluray burner.
Trying to burn music cd using WMP.
Appears to burn Ok. Plays OK on the computer. Will not play on the cd player. The cd player plays R and RW Cds and all has been well in the past. So it seems that the burner is now not doing the job properly. Do I need some sort of burner cleaner (Don't want to muck it up) or what else can i be doing wrong?

This could be a file format problem.

Are you sure that you have set WMP to burn an Audio CD? If you burn music tracks as a data CD, the CD will play OK on a computer, but not on most CD players.

On the Burn tab, click the Burn Options button, and ensure that Audio CD is selected.

Also check that you are "finalising" the CD.

Many thanks for the suggestions. I'll have a go in the morning.

That's the answer. Many thanks.
Don't really understand why anyone would want to make a data disc with WMP.

You say "that's the answer". For the benefit of anyone else who might be interested in your problem, please explain exactly what solved it.

Was it just the fact that you were burning your music as a data CD, or was it also a lack of finalising the CD?

It was because I was burning as a data CD. The system seems to finalise the disc automatically at the end of the burn process.
