I have tried a number of times to make an MP3 cd for my Bose GTjtd 2006 model.

First CD I made was a data disk (used to work on my old pioneer but not this bose)

2nd CD was made in iTunes as an MP3 and it worked fine.

3rd and 4th CD I made in Itunes as an MP3 disc come up as error.

What do you use to make MP3 cd's that work in the bose system?

Any of those methods should work fine. As Artermis says, try a different brand of disc.

FYI I have only used Traxdata discs so far and although they work fine at first, occassionaly one gets stuck in the mechanism. Purchased CDs don't seem to have this problem.

What is classified as a top-quality writeable CD then?

I'm not sure it even depends on quality / brand I think its just different brands of readers have better results with some discs than others.

I had an old Technics CD player which I got long long before cd-rs came out. I had to burn cds at the slowest possible speed (usually 4x or slower) and tick "disc at once". Only then would it play CD-Rs. It takes more effort for the laser to read a home brew CD.

The Blaupunkt headunit is notoriously picky about CD-R brands.
I don't think they every played RW.



Check out some of the older threads and try some of the suggested disc
brands. Verbatim springs to mind.



Also I think you need to close the disc.

Cheers. I've got hold of some Sony CD-Rs that I'll try.

BTW I've only ever used iTunes to burn my MP3 discs. Also use iTunes to burn Audio CDs too.

I burnt off a cd mp3 successfully yesterday, the same playlist that I previously couldn't get to work in my headunit. Only differences were I got a verbatim brand cd and I slowed down the burn speed to 8 times.

Nice one. I think you have your answer there.

Might be worth investing in a new burner if yours is getting on a bit.

Nah burner is in a 3month old toshiba laptop, not the burner.

I'll try the other disks at a slow burn rate to see if that had any effect
