I know I'm a little behind on this one, but here is what I've experienced. I have about 40 burned cd's that I carried in my Ram and didn't have any problems with any of them. When I bought my 98 zj with the Infinity system, I could only play about 25% of them. Of the 40 CD's, some were direct copies, some were MP-3's converted to wave, some created with Roxio, some with Music Match, some TDK, Memorex, and Imation, and all were burned on any one of 4 burners that I have had in that time frame. I even took one cd, copied it with all different programs, speeds and cd, and none of them work (I now have about 20 coasters if anybody wants them). What I have heard, but can't back it up yet, is that it isn't the CD's, but the players. Some players spin the cd's at different rates than others, and can read the burned cd's better. As I said before, all of these burned cd's worked in my Poineer in my truck, they all work in my Pioneer cd player in my home stereo, and in my Pioneer DVD player, but not my Jeep or RCA DVD. If anybody out there has any more information to back this up, or any solutions, please help. After losing too many cd's from car break-ins, I don't put originals in my car anymore.
