    2005 X-Type CD Player won't play home computer Audio Discs.

    Hi all, good afternoon all.

    This is my first post since joining and may I say I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all your quality fixes, this is certainly some competition to the main dealer stealers out there information wise. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Main Jag Dealerships don't access this site for their own ends.

    Anyhow, I was wondering why after I have made a CD of all my favorite music on my desktop computer, why when I load it into the Jag CD Stack does it come up 'NO Disc' ?

    Anyone got any ideas how I get around this problem.

    If I place a normal shop purchased CD into the stack it plays that and all others without any problems, but the one's I have made, no joy ????

    Best regards: Geoff in Preston, Lanc's.

    Some CDR disks, particulary cheap ones don't play in some players.

    Did you record an Audio CD or copy MP3's to a CD ? if you copied MP3's it will not play as that will look like a computer data disk to the AUDIO CD player.

    Re: 2005 X-Type CD Player won't play home computer Audio Discs.

    Hi and thanks for the reply.

    The discs I am recording onto are TDK CD-RW 700mb High Speed discs.

    I am downloading music tracks off the internet onto my desktop computer into my music files / folders, which as you say is probably MP3.

    So are you saying that if I were to copy / transfer music tracks off a borrowed / purchased music CD onto my computer, I could then transfer this music onto my own CD and this would then play in the car, or not ?

    Cheers: Geoff

    Hi Geoff and welcome to the forum

    [edit: just missed your last post!]

    As regards your CD problem, I'm guessing it's because you have not created the CD in standard "audio CD" (or 'red book')format.

    In other words it must not be for example MP3's or windows media (wma) files. The X-type cd player does not support these formats.

    Many audio cd burning pc applications will produce audio cds in the correct format, but you can only get a maximum of about 90 minutes of audio in this format compared with MP3's where you could squeeze perhaps more than 10 hours on a CD

    That will not work, they will be stored (Ripped) to you computer as WMA or MP3 files.

    You need a program that creates Audio CD's from digital music files, there are any number of programs that will do that & even Windows Vista & Windows 7 have the facility built in.

    Geoff,
    If you use I tunes set a playlist which adds up to no more than the disk size (see bottom of screen for total )and press the cut disk button it will ask you if you want a data file or audio file choose audio
    It will allow about 20 tracks per disk
    Like said previously the stack system does not recognise MP3

    Re: 2005 X-Type CD Player won't play home computer Audio Discs.

    Hello again,

    Just tried burning another disc following the instructions you guys have kindly sent me today, I ensured that it was burning an Audio disc and not data, only 13 tracks listed in my playlist, brand new disc inserted and clicked on burn disc.

    All went well, and so I then tried the disc in my wifes 2003 Toyota Corolla CD Player 'NO DISC'- no joy !!

    Tried it in the Jag CD Player, again 'NO DISC' - no joy !!

    What am I doing wrong, I used Windows Media Player to burn the music onto the disc which works fine.

    Is this me or am I just missing something vital ??

    Cheers all: Geoff

    Hi Geoff,
    Your cd player wont recognize mp3 files, you need to convert your mp3 disc to audio format (.wav) there is plenty of software on the net that will let you do this, but the easiest way is to use 'Nero' it will convert the .mp3 files to .wav files then burn your disc all in one step.

    Hope this is of some help

    Can you play the disc you burned on a domestic CD player? I've burned loads of data discs as audio and they all play in my XKR.

    Put the disk back in your computer and look at it in windows explorer;
    Do the track names look like -
    A - songtitle.mp3 or songtitle.wma
    B - Track01.cda

    If they look like A you have burned a data disc and your car can't possibly read it, you need to burn it differently as an Audio CD, what operating system are you running, and what version of media player?
    If they look like B you have successfully burned an audio cd, but it's likely your car doesn't like that brand, try a different brand.
