I downloaded a song on to my computer and copied it to a CD. I have no problem listening to it when I play back on my computer, but when I try and play it on a CD player it will not play. It is an MP3 file type and the player spins, but no sound. I was wondering if because I downloaded with my Windows 10 OS this would cause a problem?

Is there any way to correct this so I can play it on a CD player? Thank you!

 

I should have mentioned I converted this song from a Youtube to an MP3.

Most CD players cannot play an MP3. It first needs to be converted to an audio file then burnt to the CD. See the below guide.

I just don't get it. I went step by step, but every time I click Burn Disk, the disk pops out. I checked the disk and it is blank. I did try to other new disks and they pop out also. Any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong? Thank you!

I'm not sure. You can try using Imgburn. When you download the exe file you can extract the contents using 7zip or make sure you do not opt in for any optional programs. Use the guide I linked to. You need to create a Cue file first from the MP3 files then burn as an audio disk.

A lot of people now-a-days don't even own a dedicated CD player. Instead they use their home DVD players. Most of which for the past several years will play an MP3 disc. Do you own a fairly new DVD player? If not they're quite inexpensive now.  

 

Also I'd opt for something simpler to create a disc. Although ImgBurn is quite capable http://www.imgburn.com/ you would probably find one of the following more user friendly:

 

http://www.burnaware.com/ or https://cdburnerxp.se/en/home both are totally free & will work just fine on a Win 10 computer. There is no need to create a CUE file. Once you have collected your MP3s it's just a simple matter to Drag/Drop into either of the above & hit the burn button.

 

Also I would not convert a MP3 file back to a lossless format. You won't gain anything back by doing so. Just stay with MP3 files. A 700MB CD will hold hours & hours of music. I've created MP3 discs that will play for well over 8 hours non stop, using 128 Bit & higher sample rates.

 

You stated that you converted your song to MP3 from Youtube. Nearly all the tools that I have seen for that purpose will convert the video file to MP3 audio to begin with. I'm curious, what format was the downloaded file before you converted?

Here is the link to the video. My wife has to sing this song and she was looking for some backup accompany.

I believe that great tune is on this album available from eBay, for $9.00 & free shipping.

Depending on the Program you are using to Burn with , as you said , it Opens Tray and says Insert Disc , did you allready have a Disc in there ?

Then just close it and try again. Some Progs do that in sequence to accept the Disc.

 

Otherwise if the Song is Truly an MP3 and the extension says .mp3 { Via Properties on the File }.

You should be able to Open Windows Media Player , add the Song to the Playlist , insert a Disc and click the Burn Button from Media Player Tab.

Im not familiar with WIN10 and WMP 12 but would be the same IMO.

 

I use Nero and ImgBurn and both work fine , Nero i prefer by just following the Basic steps , and ImgBurn as JohnC_21 stated just Create the Cue File and Burn.
