CD won't play in one player

Post by jbtex784 » Thu Jan 09, 2014 7:01 pm

This is a question I had submitted a few days ago through your Support; I have not been able to get my Sony Walkman(it's been around a few years) to play a CD made by S.I.A. The CDs will play on other players though. Since then I was loaned some other software to experiment with and it too couldn't make a CD to play in the Sony Walkman.
However, I had a CD-RW and figured it was worth a try. The other program allowed a burn speed down to 4x on the CD-RW and so it did it and it worked! But the CD-RW wouldn't play at all on the other players, which is ok, I was just experimenting.
I have Windows XP, I'm using Sony Audio CD-R blanks and I've tried burning in different formats; WAV and WMA.
Since the only CD to play in it was burned at 4x, is there a way to adjust it way down in S.I.A.? I've only seen where it offers 48x or fastest.
Thank you

Hi,

CD-R discs will generally work in more players than CD-RW discs will. If you can't get the burn speed setting you want from Spin It Again, you can create wav files out of your tracks and burn the CD using the other software.

Will the effects added on a sound file in Spin it Again carry over to another program to burn the CD?

Hi,

Yes, if you create audio files, the effects would be there.

I had an old Sony Walkman that would not play homemade CD's period. All the other CD players, including the ones in the cars, would play fine. I tossed the Walkman. Many of the first CD players that came out will not accurately "read" homemade CD's, and still others will not play CD's that are completely full, with over 12 tracks or so.

That was my first suspicion and you just confirmed it. Mine may not be as old; it will play some homemade CDs that other people have given me. It's definitly the pickiest of the CD players. Thank you for that information.

Hi,

For anybody else reading this, there are also a large number of CD players that won't play CD-RW discs, but will play CD-R discs.
