So your just burning direct copies of music cd's and having problems. Try a different program with a different burn engine (nero works great for mine) or switch brand of CD-R. My stock player will display the text burnt from converted mp3 files with no troubles.

It's possible that your HU could be faulty. Laser slightly out of alignment or something like that. I've yet to play a burnt CD and have it fail. I burn at 52x or 48x and have used 4 or 5 different CD manufacturers. Basically I buy the cheapest brand that's on sale. No problems so far on the stock HU.

All the CDs I have in my car are copies of the originals I keep at home (learned this the hard way after having them jacked out of my old car).

I haven't had a problem getting any of them to play.

*Edit: I've noticed on one CD the player will actually display Artist, Album, and Song titles. Ben Fold's Five - Unauthorize Biography of Reinhold Messner. Haven't even run through half of my collection yet but this has been the only one so far. Anyone know what's special about it?

That CD is made by Sony or a Sony affiliate?

Sony has CD-Text on all of their Cd's. If you are using a burning program to copy CD's, you should be able to save the CD-TEXT to the burned copy if you select it.

Good to know. How come everyone doesn't do this? I've often asked myself that question. It doesn't seem like it would be hard to do and the amount of data it would take up on the cd would be miniscule. Very few retail CDs actually use up all the space on a CD anyway.

Nero

If you burn music using Windows media player it will not play on your factory player. I always use Nero and it works wonderful. It displays the artist and song title on the head unit. Also DO NOT put a paper label on the CD as this can cause the disc to get stuck in the unit. The cause of this is that the extra thickness of the of the label added to the CD causing it to be jammed in the player.
If anyone knows how to get a stuck CD out please let me.
