Cant play a burn audio disk

The problem is, I would burn a cd for my son, and he cannot play it on his system. His system is/was a very expensive Bang & Oelson and consists of a radio/cassette player/record player/cd player (which takes 6 cd's).

I have just visited a neighbour to try my burnt disks on his system, and they play fine, so then I rang a B & O seller, and he thinks it might be the age of the system which is at least 15 years old.

If this is the case, do you think there is a different format I should burn them to, if its possible.

PS I assume the disc was indeed burnt in audio format, not .WAV or .MP3 ?Not sure on older B& O systems which files can be read.

Have you tried burning at the slowest speed possible.Also try another brand of disc.

Just a thought you are burning to write once cd's and not rewritable cd's?

You'll need a burner that has the option to burn to Audio CD, not WAV etc, as previously stated above. CDA

B&O expensive does not mean its all that good. Anyway all as said except again did you perhaps use an RW assome older machines will baulk at them the fact it plays on a neighbours suggests your recording is ok as to being a CD audio and finalised assuming his only plays CD audio

Yes, I did use a cd-r, it was finalised, and by now, I think I can guess that his machine is the culprit.

I am calling there today so I will take a few burnt disks to try.

Did you burn some at the lowest speed possible?
