Hi,

Spin It Again can only burn standard audio CDs. If these aren't playing in players outside your computer, you can try burning at a lower burn speed.

One major cause of this problem is CD-RW discs. A lot of CD players just can't play CD-RW discs, so if you are using those, try switching to CD-R discs. You can also just try a different brand of CD-R disc.

Hi,

Try it on some different CD players outside your computer.

If you create MP3 file and burn them using another program, does the same thing happen?

Some older CD players just don't like to play homemade CDs.

Hi,

You can burn standard audio CDs using free programs like Windows Media Player and iTunes.
