CD-r question

I have some discs that list a max write speed of up to 52x, but they won't play in my car. I burned them at a speed of 8x, but it's a no go.

I've burned discs that list a max write speed of 8x and they work fine in my car.

Does the max write speed on the disc have to match the players max read speed?

What's the deal?

probably more of a media brand issue than the write speed.

Try buring on of those discs at 1x as a test, but Vcooks right. The brand/disc color is probably not compatible with your car CD player. Is it new/old, or factory/aftermarket?

Factory cd player 2000 Honda Accord Coupe. Memorex, same brand as the ones that work.

I was thinking that I should try recording at a lower speed. I'll do that now.

I use Memorex 52x discs and burn them at 52x with no problem playing them in my Kenwood car cd player. Maybe a bad batch of discs.

The laser in your CD player might need a cleaning. CD-Rs burn more shallow than store bought discs and are harder to pick up. Lower speed might help also.

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

Tried the lowest speed (1x), still doesn't work. It might be the coating on top, it's a flat, dull finish (for easier labeling). The ones that work, have a glossier finish.

They play fine on the computer and a cheap portable stereo. Tried it in a 2005 chevy and it wouldn't even accept it, only took it halfway in and read "check disc".

Guess I'll have to unwillingly hop on the bike and go look for the ones that worked before.

I have had much success with TDK, Verbatim and Philips branded CDRs. They have worked in every CD player I throw it in, even an oldie Discman.
