Hi-

Do any of you guys burn your own CD's using Musicmatch Jukebox and play then in your CTS V? I just burned a CD using the software, but the CD player won't play the disk. I keep getting a "check disk" message on the screen. The files are showing up as "CD audio track" on the computer, which seems to play in every other car and/or stereo I own except the CTS V?

Yea i know what you mean (kinda)
I use Roxio and the cd's i burn play on my system but not very well.
What happens is it will play just fine then all of a sudden it will skip and stop playing and then start from a diferant point in the song.This will happen very often and then sometimes it wont happen for weeks.So i dunno :hmm: All i play in my changer is burned CDs so i do know what you are talking about.

I use Nero 6 Ultra for perfect discs everytime, or use iTunes and they work perfect 99.9% of the time (only time when iTunes seems not to work perfectly is when I am burning discs on my slower, 900mhz computer, with multiple programs open so there is lag in the burning process). Nero uses a write buffer so a little computer lag doesn't affect it.

Another thing you need to be aware of is that cdr quality DOES affect the outcome of the burned disc. Cheap, no-name discs have a tendency to have lower quality control, thus more often your burned cdr is useless, or sounds really bad. Good cdr's are so cheap these days it makes no sense to buy them. Spend another 8 cents (or whatever it is now) each for good quality names like Memorex or TDK to be sure that your music plays and sounds good.

Another thing to note, as I just recently went through this, is the factory 6-disc changer likes to jam occassionally. It is my belief that cheap cdr's aid the changer machanism in jamming. Cadi service must then replace the entire unit, they cannot simply unjam it. Your V will be out of comission for several days. Just food for thought; its rare, but it does happen.
