Newly burned CD-R's not playing back

I was having trouble with my old burner, and so I bought a new one a couple weeks ago. It seemed to be fine when burning videos, but burning audio is a problem same as it was with the old burner. I'm trying to burn newly decoded wave files to CD-R. TLH says the files are decoded just fine. The burner says everything went fine, but the CD won't play. The player shows one long track, and I get no sound. I've tried the CD in multiple players, and so I don't think it's the players.

I've also tried my old burner, and both the old and new burner says the burn was successful. I used ImgBurn, which seems to be fine.

The only common thread I can think of is the PC itself. Is there any way to trouble shoot this? I'm no expert, though. The decoded wave files do play back fine when I play them on the PC.

Re: Newly burned CD-R's not playing back

Now this is interesting...I tried playing back the CD-Rs in the new burner, and they all play back. Both the ones burned in the old burner, and in the new burner. They are burned as wave files. So why is it that they won't play on my home CD player, my car CD player, nor my ghetto blaster?

Re: Newly burned CD-R's not playing back

Just a stab in the dark, but the other possible common thread is the actual media that you're using to burn. Have you tried a different brand?

You burn your CDs as data or as an Audio CD (Red Book)?

Well, it's Memorex. Always been fine so far, but it's not a bad idea....

Re: Newly burned CD-R's not playing back

some files will play in one's computer but not in other "venues." For there are some file types that play in iTunes on one's computer but will not work in an iPod nor will they work as a CD.well at least this is true here.....
what file types are these...wav or mp3 or .shn or what?

Re: Newly burned CD-R's not playing back

You have to create a cue sheet to burn audio CDs with IMGBurn, then click on the cue sheet to start burning. If you drop and drag wav files into IMGBurn build mode, it will burn the wavs as data, and cd players won't be able to play them. To create a cue sheet in IMGBurn, go to tools, then click on 'create cue file', then enter the CD text (track names, album name, etc), set the pre-gap to zero for all tracks, then save the file to your desktop, then burn, then

Put one of your burnt CD's in your PC, open MY Computer, right click the drive the CD's in and click "Explore".
If it shows 5 or 6 Kb in size per file it's the wrong format.

Re: Newly burned CD-R's not playing back

Subway, I think you've hit the nail on the head. I've got the cue sheet window open, but it's not real clear how I enter the info. Is there a FAQ that has detailed info on how to create a cue sheet? I've never heard of such a thing.

Re: Newly burned CD-R's not playing back

Thanks for looking that up. I think it'll be easier to use a different program, now that I know what the problem is. ImgBurn is very very easy for video, but apparently not for audio.

Re: Newly burned CD-R's not playing back

I must admit, it's not the most intuitative of apps (yeuch! I sound like a mac user), but it does do the job very well, once you're used to it.

Re: Newly burned CD-R's not playing back

Nero did just fine for the audio CDs, whew! Funny thing is, I can't figure out how to burn a DVD on Nero. So I guess I'm stuck with two applications, but at least I can actually listen *and* watch now....
