Question Can't play burnt CD''s

Hi everybody!
Just got my new G6 and found out that my CD player does not play burnt CD's. Does anybody else have this problem? I also tried to burn a test CD at 4x speed and all I get on the message center is "CHECK DISC". Great to find this web site,any assistance would be greatly appriciated.

mp3 should be OK, but I don't think they read WMA's, at least that's how it works in the Grand Am.

CD trouble

All my files are in MP3 form.So you are saying that they should work?
All my CD's play in my 2001 Sunfire (wife's car now) and I would expect the G6 player to be better.

Actually I don't think the G6 radio is supposed to be able to play MP3s - will check on this and get back with you.

The G6s' six disc changer has compatibility issues with burned cds along with newer ford, chevy and hondas....theres really nothing you can do except by a new changer that is cd-r compatible. I've had mine since November, and this happens to me too, but less often with the higher grade cd-rs like Sony and higher priced Memorex.

Allow me to clarify

When I said MP3 files I ment MP3 files converted for regulsr CD play.
Thanks for all the input,Im taking all this info to my dealer tomorrow.

Actually the most common problem with burnt CD is the poor quality of the CD itself, not of the head unit.

Try to buy a couple of better quality CD-Rs (make sure they're not RWs too), possibly some made specifically for audio burning.

I have had no problem playing CD-R's or CD-RW's. I've had no problem with cheap disks either, a spindle of off brand disks I have works fine. The RW's will have an occaisonal skip, but nothing out of the ordinary. The only thing I can think of is are you finalizing the disks? If you leave them open to have more data written they probably wont work.

I had a CD/mp3 player in my last car, so naturally I wanted to hear the tunes on my new ride. However, the burnt CDs do play, but the mp3s do NOT. This was one reason I got all the bells & whistles for to begin with.

Burned CD's

My wife and I both have 2006 G6's (4 bangers) and we have no problems using burned CD's. Haven't tried out may brands, but I know that Ri-Data (super cheap), Memorex black, and regular Memorex work just fine.

UPDATE:
Well..., now that I too had to have my 6-disc changed out, everything that I have burned prior to acquisition & since (mp3 or otherwise) DOES play. The date on the new system is July '05.
