Default Home Made CDs in 2001 TL

Hey, folks!

I made some music CDs for the car. Some are compilations of stuff I
downloaded from the Internet. Other are copies of the originals I keep
at home. Most of the time, when I turn start the car, the CD player
cannot resume play. It seems to be trying to find its place, because I
can hear the noises it makes.

Could this be because I burned my CDs at 52x? I use regular 80min
CD-R.

Bruno,
I assume that the "bad" CDs do play OK in other CD players.
You might want to try a different brand of blank CD media.
If you do a Google search you will find many discussions of why some
manufactures' blanks do not work. I had a problem burning "Imation" CDs
until I upgraded my burner. I have *never* had a problem burning TDKs.
I have never had a problem playing CDs (using my new burner) while using
TDKs, Imation, or even a generic brand (no label).
Try burning a test CD with a different brand of blank media.
Hope this helps.
Regards,
Don F

Recordable CDs also have problems with front loading cd players if they have
a label on the disk. Not the labels that come preprinted on the cd, but the
ones you can print or write on. It doesn't seem like much, but it has been
known to increase the thickness of the CD enough to cause problems seating
in the player and even problems ejecting the CD. You might try using CDs
without labels. Just write directly on the CD. As Don points out, brand name
is also a definite possibility.

Good luck!

I tried the memorex black CDs, no label. Still sucked.

I have a '99 TL. A few years ago I could record CD-Rs for it just
fine, but now nothing I do (4x speed, various brands of CDs) generates
a new CD that works in that car. The old ones I burned in 2000 or so
still work just fine. I'd really like to know if anyone has a
sure-fire fix... I even special-ordered some 74 minute "music" CDs
that didn't work either.

Now I *do* have a very different CD recorder than I did years ago.
Back then, I had a 2x speed Ricoh, now using a 48x Mitsumi. Something
has changed -- OK, a LOT has changed, but I can't figure out exactly
what it is about the new CDs that the Bose stereo dislikes.
