    I've burned them in the past, but when I burn from my new computer, they won't play. Can I just check that you burn onto DC-R and is there anything that I may be doing wrong? I'm just trying to make a mix cd for my almost 4 year old for his birthday as I've bought him a kids karaoke cd player.
  2. if you are burning a cd to play on an ordinary cd player you will have to convert the mp3 file to audio first. An mp3 file burnt to a cd will only play on a computer or mp3 cd player.
    CD-R are fine as long as the cd player/burner on your pc is compatible with CD-R...otherwise you may have to use CD+R.
    Try finalising the disk when you've burned it.

    I'm making a mix from other cds that I've ripped, so I've made a playlist of the songs I like. How do I know if my PC/CD player are compatible? Maybe I should just get CD+R to be on the safe side. Not sure that I was given the option to finalise...

    I usually use Windows media player and it asks if you want to burn an audio CD. That is the one you need if you want to play it on a cd player.
