Since you installed Avast, you have to totally uninstall Norton (which appears to be the main reason of your problems), using Norton Removal Tool: http://service1.syma...005033108162039

When done...
Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.micro...s/bb963902.aspx
No installation required.
Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.
Click Options, then Hide Microsoft Entries.
Click File, then Refresh.
Go File>Export As, and save AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
Attach AutoRuns.txt file to your next reply.
...so I can see, if you don't have any Norton leftovers.

Some car CD players are picky.

Are other burned cd's burned as cda's or mp3's?
The files you are tryign to burn are they ripped from a cd that has drm?
If so then you won't be able to get them to work due to copyright infringement.
Were they downloaded and if so from where?

Autoruns is already installed Broni from earlier posts so a new log should be easy to produce for us. :)

Not sure if previous attachment was uploaded. Also previous discs were not protected and were .cda format. Downloaded from CD's into Windows Media Player

:) Grrrrrrrrr still some left there.

Open Autoruns, click on "Logon" tab, and UN-check:

+ ncoOSCheck (This is part of Nortons)
+ Adobe Reader Speed (No Need to autorun)
+ EPSON Stylus CX6600 Series (No Need to autorun)



When done restart computer and then:


Download Temp File Cleaner (TFC)
Double click on TFC.exe to run the program.
Click on Start button to begin cleaning process.
TFC will close all running programs, and it may ask you to restart computer.


Broni may have other suggestions also.

OK, for now, we fixed your burning, and playing (in general) issue.

As for car CD player, I simply don't know. As I said, some car players are picky.
My sister car won't play burned CDs either.

Any thoughts on rschafer61's idea about no lead into CD Burner XP? Also will it damage anything to try and burn using Windows Media Player?

Not sure what you mean by damage.
Burning with WMP should work fine. Just make sure you are burning a audio cd for a regular cd player.
One thing does come to mind, does your car stereo support the type of media you are burning to?
Is it the same as the media that does work?
Some will work with cdr but not cdrw. Cd+r may work where cd-r will not.
Just a thought as I have ran into media issues before making audio cd's for vacations and failed to check them before hand. Long quiet trip without music. :)

Wait for him to explain. I'm not sure what his idea is.

Not at all.

I'd also try using different brand of CDs (as for car CD player issue).
