I’ve been burning music through rhapsody, but found that I can’t play those CD’s in my car’s CD player. I’m thinking it’s because the cd is made up of .mp3 files and the player can’t read the disc. How do i burn an audio cd that is compatible with all players and can be played anywhere? Is there a 100% free cd burning software I can use? I want to give my friend a cd but i’m afraid it won’t play in his car either.
Use good CD-R media. The best CD-R media is manufactured by Taiyo Yuden (anything with the label “Made in Japan”).
Use a good CD/DVD burner
Use a reasonable burning speed, typically 16x, 24x, 32x depending on drive
Burn the disc in “CD Audio” format. You will be able to fit up to 80 minutes on a regular CD-R.
Many programs can be used for step 4. A small, free and simple to use program is Burrrn.

Dragemester, beat me to the punch…Might also try BurnAware Free…
But maybe your friends car player supports mp3. Have you tried it?
Thanks! Also I was wondering if there is a 100% free cd burning software that burns cd to cd without having to copy the files to the hard drive? I always have to rip the music from a cd to the hard drive and then create a playlist with the music in the exact same order and burn it to a cd. What do you recommend?
