Default Hey issues with cd player

I cant play mp3, nor can I play wmv format.

Is there something I'm missing when burning a cd to work in my Jag?


2003 x-type.

My 09 5 series can play everything yet I can't get this jag to play anything other then Store bought cd's.

You can only play CD Audio format discs.

If you've got mp3 or wma files, you need to burn them to a CD, like with Windoze Media Player, not just copying the files to disc.

It's old technology in these cars matey...

I am surprised a 09 will not play MP3's my 03 plays them with no problems. WMV are a another story, As far as WMV files my CD players will play
them sometimes and sometimes it will not play WMV files. If you burning your own CD's I would get software like Nero which burns CD in all formats and you can choose which one to burn the CD. I use CDA I believe it is called. I had a Benz before the Jag and the CD player would not play MP3 or WMV's like you just store bought CD's. But it was a 99 C class so I think it might not have been new enough for MP3 and WMV files.

Maybe I am missing something here but I burn my CD's with iTunes on my Windows computer and if I am not mistaken they are MP3 format. Are they convered to something else when they are burned? All of my CD's always work fine in my factory 2005 player. Maybe it depends on your burner software. Maybe the 2003 was upgraded prior to 2005.

I just used Itunes and burned cds that worked in my 2004 x-type.

I used slow rate to burn on the cd.

Thanks everyone for the help.

First of all I tunes is crap IMHO, as it is what Apple wants you to burn and not what you want to burn format wise. With CD software, like the Nero I mentioned you can burn your MP3 to any format you want to. I us all formats when I burn from a store CD or when I download MP3's from Amazon. Using all formats the CD should play it. Why some CD players don't play MP3 is a mystery to me. My son a electronics geek said it has to do with the compression ratio of MP3's. I took a WMV disc I burnt last week and played it today in my 03 X and it played OK. As I said sometimes WMV files play sometimes they don't. But the latest WMV seems to be compatible to most CD players, try downloading the latest version off Microsoft, it is free

Basically, older CD players only comprehend the "Audio CD" type, in which the music is a single uninterrupted stream of data. Kind of like a vinyl disc I guess. This is, to my understanding, the reason an Audio CD can't hold over 79.8 minutes of music; it's a continuous stream that is read in real-time from the physical surface of the disc as it spins. There is only that much space on the surface of the disc.

A "Data CD" contains a file system and actual separate files, such as pictures/text/video/audio. It can hold about 650-700 megabytes of data, so depending on how heavily your mp3 files are compressed you can fit about 100 of those on a single disc. That's hours of music, depending on the length of the songs of course.
Older CD player can't read Data CDs, and even if they could, they would not be able to decompress mp3 files.

I haven't burned a CD for about 10 years, so I'm not sure which is the best program for that today. I'd prolly try ImgBurn as I already have it installed.

Default CDC format - '06 stype

I just burned a couple of cds yesterday in cda format using Mediamonkey (free). They work just fine. Mp3 would have been nice - 100 tunes per disc and the decrease in quality would have been ok, what with road and engine noise and my aging ears. Still, 18-20 tunes per disc times 7 ain't bad.

I've just copied some genuine CDs onto Phillips CD-R's using NERO 10 and they play perfectly in my 2008 X type Soveriegn.

Nope, you can burn a CDR in normal format and it will work though. No compressed MP3 files though. The stereo was dated and not up to the MP3 format. Only way you can do that is get some adapter or upgrade the stereo. You can get a cheap plug in RF adapter that plugs into your cig lighter and plays through the radio...but they do not sound or work the best. Just giving an option for you besides upgrading the radio.
