MP3 Conversion question

I have many MP3 songs downloaded on my PC that I have tried to burn to music CD's, but my portable CD player will not play them.

My question is how can I make them playable to a CD player?

Eye see what you did ther
Most CD players can read it you burn the MP3 files directly to disc. Don't make an audio disc since only a few songs can be recorded per disc.

How old is your CD player? Also, are you making CD-R's or are you trying to make data CD's? Because not many CD players will play data CDs.

When I place blank CD in my PC, it ask me what I wish to do with it, I select "Make a music cd" then it goes to Media player and ask me to place songs in burn list. I add the songs to the list, it makes CD, and this works in my PC, but not in my portable cd player.

My portable is I think 3-4 years old. I used to put these songs to my Ipod, but it has broken and I can not buy a new one, so all I have is portable CD player and maybe 30 blank music CD's.

Also my portable does work with real music CD's I have bought from the past.

And actually while we're on that topic a lot of older CD players cannot play CD-R's I had one that couldn't and I had a portable CD player once that advertised that it could play CD-R's which obviously hints that some can't play them.

I've never had any problems playing MP3 CD's though. (except for course in incompatible players)

What program are you using? Just Windows Media Player? Try making a CD in iTunes. Even if it's 3-4 years old, it should have no problem playing blank CDs. 6 years ago I had a basic Sony one that played CD-Rs.

Yes, was Windows Media player I was using. Itunes worked, I did not know I could make CD from this, I thought was only for MP3 players and Ipods.

Thank you.
