    Windows CD burner is not too good program. Suggest using this instead: https://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/pin/...rning-Studio-6

    If you need a totally free burning software, I recommend Imgburn

    The Official ImgBurn Website

    Along with Imgburn, CDBurnerXP is another good free burning program.

    But, a little more information on what program you are using and exactly what you are trying to burn would help. Maybe its not a problem with whatever program you have but some other issue.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I am mainly burning music cd's. I downloaded IMGburn, without much luck, my truck cd player says the discs are bad, and i got trovi stuff and adware on my computer from the download. I was thinking about Nero, but all the reviews are pretty terrible.

    Which kind of music CD ? .MP3 or older Music only CD .. Older car radios can not read MP3.

    As I have a recording studio I do a lot of audio CD burning (not MP3). The burn speed must be kept low to be compatible with many older audio CD players. My burn speed standard is "8X" however most SATA CD/DVD burners will only go down to 16X. Thus if you are making an Audio CD use the lowest speed.

    Audio CD's burned at high speeds that will not play on a given audio CD player will either not play at all or will skip.

    MP3's do not have this problem as they are basically "data" CD's and can be burned at high speeds.

    Nero works fine for CD burning. I use Nero BurningROM for all my audio CD burning. However, Nero like many programs, has become a relatively large (bloated) program for all burning needs, not just a CD/DVD burner like it started out. I use the Nero BurningROM as it will burn to multiple burners at the same time, something almost all other burning programs will not do, including the high priced Sony CD Architect burning program that is used by many recording studios.

    I agree with David, I'd rather get one of those thingy's one sticks into the cigarette lighter that one can plug a USB into and plays via radio channel than go back to CD's...

    Not everyone has a car audio system with USB interface. I realize CD's may be a thing of the past on new audio stereo systems, but many still have the CD's and/or have a CD player in their home stereo system. There are many that want the full fidelity audio (wav/audio CD) rather than the "something less than full fidelity" MP3.

    I still do a lot of CD burning for local musicians. I have a bank of 5 CD/DVD burners (USB connected) that I use for CD burning production (I can burn 5 at a time with Nero BurningROM). I've burned over 200 Audio CD's so far this year. I recently (in the last two months) bought a Primera Bravo CD printer, to replace the third Epson printer that prints on CD's as they last about two years and then develop problems with the CD printing feature. I only use JVC/Taiyo Yuden ink jet printable CD-R blanks for my CD production.
