  • Xtreme Sound car cd/mp3 player

    I picked up a CD player (standard, in-dash system) but it sais it plays CDR disks, and MP3s. Picked it up at Wal-Mart for around $129. Made by "Xtreme Sound". I got it for my brother for Christmas, so I wont know how it works untill then (since I don't want to unwrap it)

    So has anyone used/tried one of these? Any good? 160watt total (40w per channel), but if you just use it as a head, and pipe it to a nice cross-over, amp, and speaker setup, you can probably get some good quality out of it (if its not good enough to begin with).

    any reviews?

        Umm.. how do you record an MP3 CD that this thing will actually read? Juliet filesystem or ISO9660? 8.3 char filenames? mode 1, or mode 2 XA? It doesnt seem to like any of the CDs I feed it. eventually comes up with "Error 2". And of course the book is useless.

          i think its the ISO format. A freind of mine bought a CDR player and when he tried joliet it didnt work. We burned a few in the other format and it worked
