I have been downloading music to make my own cds but they won't play in my car! Am I doing something wrong? They will play in my player in the house just not the car(the only place I ever listen to them). Any one have any ideas?

Also. . .
Make sure the audio CD's you're buring are up to "Red Book" specs. Basically, this is a "standard" of sorts that will ensure that properally formatted CD's will play on the most CD players. Most consumer-based CD burning software programs seem to automatically do this.
Use ".wav" files. Not all CD players (especially the older one, which are many!) can understand "mp3" files. A ".wav" file is an PC-based audio file.
Also make sure that each ".wav" file is saved as 16-bit 14.4 kHz ONLY (part of the "Red Book" specs).
And make sure your audio CD is burnt "Disk at once" (verses "track at once" and any other choice).
Use only CD-R disks of good quality. (Not CD-RW disks).
Hope this is helpful!
