  • MP3 CD has issues with MP3 HU

    Ok, just about every mp3 cd i make has problems. Not all songs/albums i burn to the disk work, they dont play at all. I have a pioneer mp3 HU and use nero and a pioneer burner to make the discs. Ive tryed burning at a slower speed, and tryed removing all wierd characters from the file/folder names.

    Still no luck, is there some kind of special way mp3 cds have to burnt ? is there an exact bitrate format or whateva they need to be?\

    this forum is for car pcs, try hooking up a computer to your car, your computer shouldnt have any trouble playing mp3s...


    but seriously, a lot of head units have issues with many cheap brands of cd-rs, try looking for reviews on you headunit and see what people say about this. its a typical issue with many headunits. once you find the cd-r brand that your head unit likes, stick with that

      I don't think bitrate matters.
      Some MP3 CD players don't read folders/subfolders. Try burning the CD with all the MP3s in the root and see if that plays. It's a sucky solution, I know.
      Other suggestions:
      Make sure you're using a CDR and not a CDRW.
      Burn the CD without multisession.
      Finalize the CD after burning.
      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
      How about the Wiki?

        Which Pioneer headunit are you using out of curiosity. Using the 4600mp here, and I can tell you that I've burnt CD's (CD-R brand kHyperMedia, CDRW brand TDK's) with subfolders and plays everything. One thing I should note is that you should make sure that you are burning a session that completely closes the CD, some units don't like the CD's to be left open ended.

        Though, like said, who cares, get a carputer to take care of that task for ya.

          Yeah, well im using TDKs and theres no way im goin to put all the mp3s in root. they must be in folders. My pioneer HU is a DVR-108 8xwrite i think.

            Some HU can't read deeper than a few folders check your owners manual

            there is a limit on how many folders you can put on the MP3 cd

              Are you using cheap media? If so, try something different.

                Also, some hardware mp3 players have trouble with VBR mp3s (my standalone DVD player has this issue), not sure about yours specifically.
