CD will not play in a CD player

If your CD is not playing in your CD player or stereo, it is probably because the music was not correctly written to the disc or because you used a data project to write the music to the CD instead of an audio project.

Many new CD and DVD players will play music CDs which were created using a data project, but most older players will not.

Older CD players might not be able to play CD-RWs.

  1. If you are using a CD-RW, blank the CD.

  2. Rewrite the CD as an audio project.
