I need to be able to copy cds (my own) and have them play on cd players.
In the past I have used Windows Media to make the copies with no problems
However recent cd copies I have made play only on a computer, not on a cd
player. I have tried windows media and also alcohol 120% with no success.
I have searched for help and received advice such as
burn at a slower speed
make sure you are burning an audio cd, not a data cd
both of which I tried with no success
Be sure to finalize or close the disk
In the past I believe there was an option on Windows media to finalize but now it does not seem to be there.
In Alcohol 120% the option to NOT finalize is NOT checked so I guess it should finalize the disk. However the cd I made would not play on a cd player
Another piece of advice was to buy better cds. Would this help? If so what exactly is a “better cd”? How much does it have to cost? How do you know its “better”?
Do you have any other advice as to what might be happening?
Thanks in advance
