Coping audio that plays on computer but will not play in car

I am trying to copy a self help audio book that I purchased for my son. Using Roxio, I made a copy and it plays on the computer; however, it will not play on my stereo or car system. I have a 2002 volvo so it does not have all the new technology that the newer models offer but my stereo is fairly new and can play mp3's which I do not own. Please help as I really would like a copy but do not want to pay another $150.00. Thanks for all your helpful advise in advance.

Copy as an audio cd

In reply to: Coping audio that plays on computer but will not play in car

I'm not really familiar with Roxio. I use WMP 10/iTunes/RealPlayer. All of these allow me to burn audio cds that will work in most cd players - even my 10 year old one. Regardless of which program I use, it always goes through a "finalization" process. I believe it has to go through this process in order to be played on a regular cd player. After it goes through finalization you won't be able to add more to it.

"disc copy" should do it.

Disc copy does not work

In reply to: In most burning software,

I have tried disc copy and it does not work. I have tried every option available using Roxio. I am thinking that the cd must be write protected but I know that people still copy these cd's so how can I copy this audio set?

Re: playing copied disk

In reply to: Disc copy does not work

If you can play the copied disk in your PC and any other PC (easy to check, and the first thing to do), AND you can play any copied music CD in both your car and your stereo (also easy to check), this must be a rather s

Then you've got some options:
1. Try to convert the CD-contents to mp3 and play that either in your stereo or in an mp3-player.
2. Keep playing that cd on your PC in stead of your stereo (this wouldn't help in your car, you'll need a notebook for that).
3. See if the copy plays on your sons stereo.
4. See if a copy made on any other PC behaves as you like.

Hope this helps.

create a pirated copy of a $150 source. Not a mod in sight so far. Chuckle.

giving the original to her son fair use? Not even close.

Are you using CD-RW by any chance?

In reply to: Coping audio that plays on computer but will not play in car

Because if you are, they won't work on regular cd players - car stereos or home stereos. They only work on computers.

This is not fair use

In reply to: Coping audio that plays on computer but will not play in car

This is illegal.

I agree with kiddpeat on this subject.

This is not my forum but I am locking it.
