burning music CD's

I burnt a music CD from my own compositions which had been converted to mp3's. I am using the
"Sonic Record now" programme, and CDr's.
I then checked the finished CD on my hifi and on my wife's Radio / CD and it played OK on both systems.
However, I gave one CD to one of my friends and just had an email from her, stating that her hifi won't play it.It just comes up as a blank CD
Any ideas please.
Thanks

The CD player as to be MP3 compatible. Otherwise use Wave. This may be of interest.

Did you record at high speed? That can sometimes cause this to happen. How old is your friend's CD player? That too can do it.

Thanks. The original files were WMA, and I converted them to mp3.
So I'll burn again using the WMA and see if she can play them.
I take it WMA is a wave file?

Not sure on that I think that is a Media file

wav would be better

.wma sre windows media audio files and compressed. .wav files are uncompressed and used in commrcial Audio CDs.

You would only burn songs onto a CD as MP3 if you have the ability to play MP3.
Normally you would burn a Music CD
Select Audio CD from the menu.

I can only comment on Nero as thats what I use.
With Nero if you burn MP3s as data it will record them as MP3s to the disk, this means you get a lot more music on the disk as MP3s are much smaller. However most CD players in cars, hifis etc cannot read MP3s. In order to create a disk that they all can play I have to choose to burn as audio. Nero automatically changes the MP3s to audio and almost all CD players can then read them.
I cannot confirm that Sonic works the same I'm afraid.

So are these then in the WAV format


My own hifi(which plays the CD OK) is about 10 years old, but I do not know how old my friends hifi is
