Music CDs created on computer are not playing well

When I create a CD from my iTunes library, often the CD player in my car will not play them very well. The first few tracks will play well, but it gets progressively worse the deeper I get into the CD. Toward the end, the higher numbered tracks will hardly play at all. There is so much skipping, pausing and freezing going on that it becomes annoying. The CDs that are filled up to near capacity are the worst. This is happening on CDs that have been burned on two different computers. Both computers are Windows XP Home machines. One is an HP Pavilion desktop, the other is a Toshiba Satellite laptop. There is less of this problem when I play the CDs on a boombox.

The car player is handling prerecorded CDs quite well.

I would appreciate any help from the g2g community on this matter.

Are they recorded as wav files at 16 bit 44.100khz to a closed session (finalised) disc?

Do the discs have a low speed rating?
