yeah mine won't play some burned cd's either. at car toys, they said that most stock cd players dont play mp3 format files, so the only way to fix it is to get a new cd player that has those capabilities.
Also, certain disks have lower reflectivitiy than others. This occurs between brands, and between types, i.e. CD, CD-R, CD-RW etc. Older players weren't designed for these disks, and sometimes aren't sensitive enough to read them. I had this problem quite often when my studio started burning disks for our clients. The disk would work fine in all of our players, but not in the client's car or home stereo that was a little older. This was around '99, but your '01 stock stereo may be suffering from this.

I have also had problems with the OEM am/fm/cd player in my 2002. It won't play burned cd's and now it won't reliably play and eject factory cd's. Time to replace it soon.

I got Sirius sattelite radio, and am extremely happy with it. I haven't listened to a cd or FM radio in months. Plenty of channels, uncensored, no commercials, you can pause the radio and go back from song to song for up to 44 minutes, basically it's like Tivo for radio. Not only do you not have to worry about skipping, but you can go WAY out into the sticks and still have crystal clear reception. I don't care if you're 100 miles from any civilization... if the sattelite can see you, you're good.
