I have a 2001 C2 with a Becker Silverstone 2660 6-CD changer (same as Porsche CDC3). I recorded a custom-mix CD (from music ripped in WAV format) in WAV format on a CD-R, and it doesn't play at all. The other ripping options I have are Windows Media Audio, Windows Media Pro, Windows Media Audio Lossless, Windows Media Audio (Variable Bit Rate). Does anyone know which of these will play?

You will need a package to convert and write the cd as an audio cd. Typically the files on a cd that will play on a normal cd player such as you have are in .cda (cd audio) format.

A package such as Nero Burning Rom or any other 'cd making' package will automatically convert .wma or .wav or .mp3 to the correct format and at the same time write it to cd that a standard cd player will recognise.

A standard cd player won't play a cd with .wav files on.

Thanks. Will a standards CD player play .wma files? If so, that's the easy solution. Otherwise, I think a later version of Windows Media Player will do what you suggested.

No a standard player won't play .wma files it'll only play .cda files

I used Roxio to burn the music that I ripped into .wav format, but it seems it didn't convert to standard CD audio format when I burned the music onto a CD-R. I checked Windows Media Player 11, and it will apparently do this if you check off "audio CD" instead of "data CD" when burning.

Yes. it's important using win media player or Roxio to burn as an audio cd not a data cd.

The 'audio' cd option puts it into .cda format autmatically. Also make sure you check 'finalize' the cd if you see that option.
