    How are you burning the CD's? What program are you using? Are these regular Audio CD's or MP3 CD's?

    You should be using CD-R discs.

    Try the free CDBurnerXP burning program.

    If you are using wav files, use the make an Audio CD application. If you are using MP3 files, create a "data" disc.

    I do a lot of audio CD burning as I have a recording studio.
