[quote=timc;1653996]what speed are you burning at? Some cd players have problems with cd-r media that’s burned too quickly causing high levels of jitter.
Most recommend 16x for audio cds.[/quote]
thanks a lot for this resolution. It actually worked for me. I thought i would share my frustration with this cd player with you guys. Recently, i got this honda accord 2003 ex v6 model with a 6 disc cd changer. I was so upset after i found out that i was not able to play any burned cds on my honda car stereo. Later, i found out that it would only play genuine cds but not the burned cd-r.even the genuine cd would eject by itself sometimes.but when i load the cd again, then it plays. This honda accord factory cd player is really really weird.i tried so many different model cd-r but none of them would work.i have tried hp,memorex,maxell.finally, i got a philips cd from my friend( no idea at which speed it was burnt).that philips cd-r actually worked on my stereo and then i started to believe that …yes my cd player should be able to play burned cd-r. Even in the honda accord manual it does say that the stereo should be able to play burned cd-r.the surprising thing is that i know 2 of my frineds who have got honda accord lx 2003(base model) and honda accord 2003 ex-l both of which have got 6 disc cd changer and they are able to play virtually any cd you give them.they also have honda factory deck. It puzzled me and then in another forum i found out information about taiyo yuden (this brand should work with honda:japanese cd-r) which says philips,verbatim are also part of that company.then, i got some verbatim cd-r from future shop(canadian electronic retail store) and burned one cd-r at 16x speed with a nero burning software with all the default option(finalized the cd).then, when i first put the cd-r in my factory deck, it came out. I was very disappointed and then i tried putting it back again. It came out again, then i put it back again.then i saw a track number. Voila the mysterious cd player started playing my burned cd-r. Finally, it’s a relief to find out that yes… My honda accord 2003-ex should be able to play burned cds but only certain specific models and also not to mention burned at 16x. It’s unbelievable. At one point, i was so furious that i was planning to get a auxiliary output jack installed for my car. I would have actually changed the factory deck if it was not for that climate control and look of the car. It would look ugly without the factory deck and another option is to put the cd player (aftermarket) in the cd compartment.that would look ugly and i decided not to go for that. In the future, i might be installing the auxiliary ipod car adapter. This would save me a lot of agonising moment of putting the cds in the car deck and forcing them to stay there.
