When I burn a CD from the music on my windows media player, the burned CD will only play on a computer! So that means my burner is working correct? So the mystery is, why are my burned CD’s only playing in a computer???
It's been awhile since I burned a CD, but when I did, it would play in a regular CD player. I had always used windows media player in the past, and they played fine in a regular CD player.
So I don’t know what’s going on!
I have dial up and I use windows XP. I tried using windows media player, and real player, and both will only play on a computer. I am burning on audio and not mp3, and I am using regular CD-R’s. All my music is in wma format. I made sure the box was checked on the C drive to send the files to the temporary files folder to be burned on the disc. I looked at my Device Manager and it says my burner is working properly. However there is no free space or used space on my burner, but it shows this same thing for the DVD player and my Floppy drive, so I don’t think that has nothing to do with it.
I went to the windows media player site, and it talked about how it converts .wma and .mp3 to PCM (pulse code modulation) in order for it to play on a regular CD player, I assume this is what is meant when it “Finalizes” or “Closes” the disc. Is there a way to check my burner to see if it is doing this before I attempt to burn another disc? Are there measures I can take to make sure my burner is working correctly before I attempt to burn another CD?
I was in Hurricane Katrina, and have moved away from there. All of my belongings and CD's are in storage there still. Luckily I put my CD’s that I bought on my computer, or I wouldn’t have anything to listen to, but as you know, computer speakers kinda suck, so it would be nice to be able to burn a few so I could listen to them on the little boom box someone gave me.
I would really appreciate if someone could walk me through this. If there is any more information you need to know in order to help, please let me know.
Thanks a bunch.
