For what it’s worth, my 02 Civic’s CD player chokes on pthalocyanine (silver/silver type) discs – I’ve tried Riteks and Nanyas here – but works flawlessly with cyanine (silver/green or silver/blue-green type) discs – I’ve tried Taiyo Yuden discs for these.
It can read the pthalocyanine discs, but very “slowly” – spins up and down for up to 5 minutes before recognizing the disc, or on shuffling through tracks. I currently only use TY discs in my car, and they work just as fine as pressed CDs do.
If you’re looking for some discs to try, I recommend:
Taiyo Yuden (these can be found online, or if you buy Fuji brand, look for “Made in Japan” on the packaging - not “Made in Taiwan”)
Verbatim (cheaper than TY, quality has gone down a bit recently due to some outsourcing issues, but they’re easy to find and might work great for you)
Ritek (I would no longer recommend their DVD media at all, but their CDs are still top notch in my book; these use a different dye type than the ones above and may work better in your Volvo.)
My bet is that your car’s player has a definite preference for one of these types of discs. As usual, stay clear of el-cheapo blank discs, as they’ll likely cause more grief in the long run.
