Are these CDs . . .

In reply to: Cd's will not play on dvd player??

commercial or home burned CDs? If commercial, contact Samsung. If home burned, what format did you use and does the player support it?

Luck.

Just your luck that your players don't like CDR of any type.

Ouch!

Try another brand of PC burner

In reply to: not playing cds burned

My first guess is the CDs simply aren't being finalized, or being finalized incorrectly. Since DVD-CD writers are so cheap I'd swap yours out for a different one, along with trying a more established media brand like Verbatim. I've always been a fan of the BENQ drives that have firmware you can modify, FWIW. This will set you back $20 give or take. Try newegg.com for prices & selection & some valid user comments/feedback on performance.

hth,
Pedro

Maybe try iTunes

In reply to: not playing cds burned

Since it's free, try iTunes. You should simply be able to drag your songs from your My Music folder into iTunes and it will ingest them. Then create separate playlists with your selected songs to burn, and burn away. Again, it's free, so aside from the time involved, you don't need to spend any money. You can download iTunes directly from www.apple.com.

Yes, but is iTunes really the best burning software?

In reply to: Maybe try iTunes

That question remains, considering that the OP stated Nero and Roxio (arguably better choices for burning regardless of their various quirks and bloat-like size) would not create good copies.

To the person in the thread who couldn't burn> Did you try copying a CD with Nero Express? In the past, I've had luck using it when full blown Nero reared it's ugly head with features I had no real use for at the time.
