    No CD Playback (Windows XP)

    I burned an Audio CD from my MP3 files, on the RealOne CD Burner.........every thing worked fine, and seemed to be working normal, until playback... there was none, not on the computer or any other CD player. Well I bought a Roxio Easy CD Creator 5, Platinum. Same problem. I re installed the Roxio, according to their instructions, re installed Windows XP, still no playback. I am a newbie to computers and it is very possible that I hit a button somewhere and deleted something, or changed something unknowingly. Can some one help........ PLEASE ?

    Don't want to sound stupid , but did you check to make sure your sound is not muted or something. I've seen it happen more then once. Double click on the little speaker in the right hand bottom of your screen. A window will pop up. Look and see if anything is muted (such as playback) Also make sure your using the right format for burning MP3's. They use a different format then regular music CD's.

    Sound was checked and is OK, correct format was used, I might add that CD's I have made previously play fine.

    Were the CD's that you burned before (the ones you said worked) from the same MP3 files or file? Just maybe the MP3 files or file you are burning from have become corrupt. Have you tried burning MP3's from a different source? Have you just recently upgraded to Win XP or anything?

    Not a recent upgrade, and the files seem to be fine.

    <hr>...and the files seem to be fine...<hr>
    If that means the files play properly from a copy still on your hard drive, then it looks to me like you've got a "coaster" on your hands. If you're sure you closed the CD when you burned it, I'd try making another to see if you CAN produce a good disk with your drive and software combo. Maybe you should just try make a data disk first (of a few files) to see if the hardware/software is functioning.

    Download and install IsoBuster 1.2, then check your CDs. I hope it will show where the problem is.

    Re: No CD Playback (Windows XP)

    I have made several CDs, and I have finally found at least some playback, however, it is scratchy sounding, and sounds full of "static". There has to be some setting some where that I am unfamiliar with, in fact, like I said in the first post, I'm a newbie, and really don't know a whole lot about computer fucntions. What is a "coaster" ?

    Re: No CD Playback (Windows XP)

    "Coaster" is the somewhat sarcastic term for a bad or incorrectly burned CD. Sorry. Let's go back to a previous question. If you play one of the files in question from your HARD DRIVE, how does it sound? We need to determine if the files are "bad" to start with or only on your burned CD.

    Re: No CD Playback (Windows XP)

    Thanx for taking time for me Mr. Big Al.............All my MP3 files play back fine , they sound great. I have finally been able to get sound from the burned CD, after 10 wasted discs, but it is all scratchy and distorted. I'm getting closer, but still need help!

    Re: No CD Playback (Windows XP)

    Hey Doc is there any chance she's using the wrong kind of disk or maybe the factory messed up in packing process. I don't burn MP3's , so I'm not sure. But the problem she is having doesn't seem like it's caused by the files or the playback software. And she said she has burned CD's before with the burner she has and it worked fine. Matter of fact she has tried two different programs for burning. And if her CD-ROM plays other music should it not play MP3's if the format is correct?

    Re: No CD Playback (Windows XP)

    Now that you mention it, Cowboy, I just thought of another question that I'm out of my range of experience on. KIM, this is gonna sound weird, but in your original post you said you burned an AUDIO CD. Now, I've never put MP3s on CD so I don't know the answer to this, but wouldn't the CD be a plain ol' DATA CD, not AUDIO? If I'm off in left field on that, then maybe Cowboy has a point. Is it possible you got a bad batch of disks?

    In burining all those bad CDs did you get any type of errror message. I now when I burn CDs I will sometimes get a "buffer underrun" error message. On my system I choose only a 4x write speed I never make "coasters", I do not let the software chose the write speed.

    Big Al, In my limited experience with burning Audio CDs I've never bought blanks that said Audio and have never had a problem playing them later (either on the PC or CD players). Not burning MP3s as MP3s but converting to 'normal' audio format. Also, KIM does the scratchy sound occur on all devices you play the CD?
