The only format that I can get the roxio to put out is .cda My home stereo's play wav format. Does anyone know how to change this?

thanks

.cda is not an audio format but is always created when you create an audio CD. You can consider the .cda files as sort of pointers to where the actual audio data is located on a CD. You will notice that all .cda files have the same size: 1kb

If these files show up on on your burned then you have a proper audio CD and it should play on your CD player. I don't know of any CD player that plays wav files.

actually, I just took the cd to the newest player we have (less than 2 years old) and it plays fine. I took it to some of our older stereos and the cd won't play. I am going to try to burn another cd at a slower speed and see how that works. I used to burn wav files on the old computer, and they worked fine. I have roxio cd 5.10. If that tells you how long its been.

thanks for your help

And that didn't work. I may have to install the older roxio version.

Of course you can use wav files on your hard drive to burn to an audio CD; the files don't appear on your CD as wav files though. I have a 8 year old CD player and it plays all my audio CDs just fine.

You may also want to try a different brand of blank disc. It sounds like a problem with the writer/media/reader combination. Apparently, since it plays okay in a newer player, the disc was written correctly, but not "well enough" for the older player. Verbatim discs have been quite reliable for me over the years. Also, be sure you're using CD-R (write once) discs, and not CD-RW (erasable) discs.

 

Hope that helps!

I think they moved the post because of the reference to cd creator 5. I am currently trying to burn on version 9.

 

 

I have memorex cd-r's right now. I don't know what other brand I used. I know I bought a 50 pack at wally world. If I can't get it soon, will just figure out how to play my Ipod into my "old" stereo.

 

Thanks all

Another observation then, Memorex CD-R's have just about the worst reputation of any brand for not being reliable to burn or read. Try some Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden (if you can find them).

There shouldn't be any difference between an Audio cd made with v5 or v9.

An Audio cd is made to a certain standard and that never changes.

 

When you are using v9 what part of the suite are you using to try and make the discs?

You should be using either Music Disc Creator or Create Audio Cd from the Home app.

 

As far as it playing in the newer player and not the older one that's probably just a compatibility issue between the burnt discs and the players.

Well I went and bought some earphone splitters to adapt my IPOD to my home stereo shortly after the last post. Today I am trying to hook my computer up to my tv. I almost got it, except I my new video card is for a PCI motherboard, and I have a PCIE_x16 motherboard. But I am getting off topic.

We have a winner in the problems. It was the Memorex cd's. I picked up some sony cd's and they work fine. Thank you for all your help.
