I used Easy CD creator to burn an Audio CD on a cd-rw disc. The resulting disc is playable by a cd-rom drive (different form burner) in that computer and a dvd-rom drive in a different computer. However, it is not playable in a Sony DVD player (which normally recognizes audio cd) nor is it playable in my car cd player.
Should this work? Do I need different burning software or special settings? Will I have better luck if I create the audio cd using a cd-r media?
Thanks for any pointers.

Yep, burn it on CDR as some DVD players don't read CDRWs. Many CD players do not like CDRWs either!

ReWritables will not play in stand alone players mate, just burn on to normal cdr discs and all will be fine..;)

To be correct, some newer models will recognize CDRWs but most (especially older models) don't. Even in case of CDRs, some players would not play some brands of blanks so don't besurprised if it happens to your player.

ok, some of my worst fears are realized.
I read the forum faq and noticed the suggestion that all burning for audio cds should be done in DAO (I was using Track at once). So I reburned the cd-rw with DAO and my sony DVD player could play the audio cd. However, my Honda car audio player did not recognize the disk.
So I followed the suggestions here and burned the audio onto cd-r. The audio cd-r is playable by my Honda audio cd player but is not recognized by the Sony DVD player.
Is there any hope for this situation? Or does it just boil down to an irreconcilable physical incompatibility among the cd-r/rw and the different lasers used by the audio cd player and the DVD player?
Are there any cd-r's that will be playable by a Sony DVP S330? Conversely, are there any cd-rw's playable by an OEM Honda car audio player (whatever the hell it is)
Thanks for the previous suggestions.

Not many audio CD players can handle CDRWs and although Sony DVD players are know to not play CDRs there are some brands that should work.
