If you're burning an mp3 or data cd, most likely your car player will not play it. You need to be sure you're making an audio cd.

A .cda file contains no music.They are just pointers to a place on the disc where the actual files reside.They are a format that is needed by audio cd players (car,home) to find the files they need to play.Usually if you look at them in explorer you will see a size of 1kb.So,if you made an Audio cd then you should have .cda files,if you don't they won't play.

 

If you used Music Disc Creator then you should choose Audio Cd for the project,click on add tracks or Import from CD/DVD and the tracks will be added.If they were .mp3 or .wma files they will be converted to a .wav file to be burnt to the cd.

 

If you have a disc that has .cda files it should play on your car stereo.That is unless you took a cd,tried to copy the .cda files to your hard drive,then tried to make a cd from them.You'd end up with a disc with pointers but no music.
