Unusual problem burning CD's with my new burner

My old CD/DVD burner that came on with my computer had the tray break. I ordered a new one,(a Liteon iHAP422) took the old one out, put the new one in, and started the computer. It reads disks fine, and will burn a CD, but not one that will work in my car, but works fine in my Playstation. I have never had a problem burning the same types of CD's(Memorex CD-R) to work in my car with my old burner.

I can't figure out the problem. Its got the most up to date Firmware from Liteon and everything. The CD's sometimes start to play for like a second in my car, and then they start skipping before locking up. Liteon can't tell me nothing to help me out other than to try and return it, but if its defective why would it read, and burn disks to begin with? I'm not the most computer literate person.

I've always burn't CD's with the latest Media Player.

My old burner was a Hitachi-LG burner.

Hope I posted this in the right section.

Thanks for any help,

Some CD players are stricter than others and not all homeburnt CDs will play in all CD players.
Technically speaking a homeburnt music CD is not a "proper" music CD compared to a professionally pressed CD and some players just don't want to know.

This might be of interest:
