CD-RW's won't work in stock stereo?

Lacking an iPod input and control I decided to take advantage of the 6-disc CD changer and bought some CD-RW's (Verbatim brand) so I could re-burn different playlists if I decided to. Now I'm getting disc errors. Are CD-RW's incompatible or is there another brand of discs which work with the stock unit?

Thanks

i havent tried cd rw's, but i would first check all your burning settings first, maybe a different burning program like nero. i have had problems with windows media player when it comes to buring cd-r's which the gto head unit will deffinately play.

What format is the music on the disc? Remember, that unit won't play mp3's; on any type of disc. The use of CD-R's is mentioned in the owners manual but there is no mention of CD-RW's leading me to believe that they won't work in the stock Blaujunked unit......

Most are AAC burned straight from iTunes as an audio CD. My CD-R's play without a hitch, which leads me to believe the RW's are the problem.

Thanks for the info guys, a stack of CD-R's are super cheap anyway.

I doubt that the OE unit actually plays AAC's. They might be AAC going in but your burn program converts them to some format that's compatible with the Blaupunkt.

I didn't even know you could still buy CD-RWs.... but our headunits suck. They will only play CD-R and you MUST burn them into an standard audio CD. No MP3, ect.

You're right, iTunes is burning the discs as audio CD's.

Agreed! That is a LOT of work to do on a POS Head Unit!
Just replace it and move on.
