Burning CDs

I have Nero in my computer and when I burn an audio Cd it will only play on my computer and not my Cd player , what am I doing wrong

You may need to turn off file protection - when you copy the tracks across, there may be a sign like a double S - click on it and untick file protection.

It could be your CD player. Not all players can read home made cd's. Can you try one on another CD player?

If you are using CD-RW it won't work but CD-R might well do.

If you have a DVD player attached to your TV, try playing it through that. They tend to be more tolerant of recording type.

When you burn the CD are you finalising it? if not this could well be the problem

All the above are a possible solutions ludmilla, the other possibility is you are burning the music as Data rather than audio, this also would stop the CD from being read in a normal CD player. Whatever your problem is it is one of the above suggestions.

Email from ludmilla: Is CD/R not rewritable.

You should post to the thread & only use email if invited.
CD/Rs are not rewritable - usually CD audio players cannot read CD/RW discs so you can only use CD/Rs.
