I record Christmas CDs for local young musicians who want to record their own xmas CDs. I have had great success and reliability with my Yamaha 2260 accept for one client. The CDs I burned for her would not play on the CD player in her Dad’s jeep cherokee or in her Sharp boombox. They worked fine elsewhere. I am lost as to what to do.

Returning her cash was all I could do. Do you have any suggestions? I burned the disks using Adaptecs easy CD pro. The disks tested fine in the 3 cd players in my home. Great web site, thanks for being there!

All the best,

John Glynn

Dear John:

You’ve done the best you can. Many CD players, portables and car players are not capable of reading CDRs. If you found they play well on most home CD players, then that’s the best you can do.
