Default Home Made Audio CD's [; ; win98SE]

sponsored links
Hello Boys,
I burn CDR's with my own collection of music for my own
listening enjoyment. Recently I compiled a CD for a friend
of some old LP music. He played the CD on his old Boom Box
and it worked perfectly. But when he put it in a CD player
in a Home Entertainment Center made by Sony, the CD would not play. The device said "No CD". I assume Sony has a way to Recognise Home made CD's.
Is there a key available that will make my CD's usable on all players? I use Nero software to write with. I hope all new CD players don't lock out Home Made CD's. When my old machines wear out, I will have to go back to tape cassettes for portable music. I would like your thoughts on this matter. Thanks, Rr

I don't know of a particular problem with Sony's. There very well may be though. I know my friend has a car system (Kenwood) and it will not play a lot of CD-R's. I don't think the makers of stereo systems will start removing the ability to play CD-R's. Instead, the music industry is starting to make it more difficult to rip or copy their original discs. Read here for some info about that - [URL=***********][b]here[/b][/URL]

Anyways, I would not worry about having to go back to cassette tapes!!
Even if we have to play CD's into our sound cards, we will be able to compile our own discs.

Some older CD players just do not like CDR's and Sony's older DVD players won't work at all. SOmetimes changing the brand of media will help, especially a different color of dye. But not always, if you have a few diff types of CDR's around try a couple see what happens.
