I went from xp to 7 home pro. computer is an acer. I burn a music cd and it will play on the compter , in the car and on my daughters cd player. Issue is when we give it to her music teacher of the dj at a performance it will not play. Today the dj equipment did not recognize the format. I am just using media player to burn this an wonder if getting Nero 8 will solve this issue. any thoughts?

Hi -
I still use CD Burner XP program on my Win7 laptop now that it has been upgraded.
Also I have BurnAware Free, Power ISO, and ImgBurn all installed, along with the default Player / Burner - I have not yet used Nero, but remember it may just be the music teachers dj equipment that only recognises certain formats -

Any of the above programs seem to get decent burns (legally of course) from most music sources -

Thank You -

I concur with Noknojon's comment here, since the disc plays successfully on multiple players.

When you say a music CD, is it creating an audio Compact Disc, or a data disc with .MP3, .WMA or similar files on it? The mention of not recognizing the format suggests the latter, in which case you'd need to select a destination format which the DJ equipment can handle.
