Hope this is OK to post here..? not really computer related ....but
not sure where to get help...

Ive just installed a CD / DVD/ MP3 player in my vehicle , Ive been
given 10 C Dís that have got music on them taken from a friends
music collection which were recorded in mp3 format from his
computer. When I play them in the new player I get a
An ERROR 1 . warning - according to the player manual
Error 1. is due to scratched or dirty CD's , but I get the same
error when I try to play all 10 disks, and they all look clean.
So I think it may be a problem that the new player is not
recognizing the disk record format ..? , when I play the CD's
on my computer the tracks are shown only as mp3.

Is there any way of seeing a bit more information
about the format of the CD's , by using my computer
and may be recording the tracks in another format
that may play in my new player, to see the current
CD format I play them in Windows Media Player 10

I have also put the music onto my computer
and then burnt a new CD , but I still get the same Error 1.


I cannot get in touch with my friend who gave me
the CD's to ask him about the recording format

any one have an idea how I can get the 10 CD's to
play in my new CD player ....?



Thanks Mypenry

Only seen this once....in my own car! I had a crappy car and I put in a crappy CD player that said it would play MP3's. It didn't. It played maybe 1 out of every 3 MP3 discs that I put in it. Now, I'm not saying that your new deck is cheap, I'm just saying that some decks don't like MP3 format.

I would try to get a converter and convert the music to wma, then back to mp3. I've seen this work many times, and seen it not work. With that said, if your deck will recognize wma files, you can always go that route and convert them to wma and put them on a disc. I'd also try burning them to CD-R's (as compaired to CD-RW's), and use a different program than Windows media player.

I'm far from an expert when it comes to audio formats for different decks, so if anyone else has any ideas, don't be afraid to post them! :thumbsup:

Hi stevealmighty , Thanks for your reply, Ive just looked again at the player manual
and it say's ....This Player cannot play the CD-R / RW disks which contain other
than CD-DA or MP3 / DivX data

the player is a Panasonic CQ-D1703W CD / MP3 / DVD player

ive also seen this from the player manual....

Recording MP3 / DivX files on a CD ?DVD -media

( A ) Its is recommended not to use a disc holding two or more different format
types of files

( B ) If CD-DA files are on the same disc as MP3 or DivX files
the songsand the movies may not play in intended order
or some songs or movies may not play at all.

( C ) When storing MP3 data and DivX data on the same disc
use different folders for each data

( D ) Do not record files other than MP3 and DivX files and unnecessary
folder on a disc.

( E ) The name of an MP3 / DivX file should be added by rules as shown in the
following discriptions and also comply with the rules of each file syste..

( F ) The file extension '' mp3'' should be assigned to MP3 files

( G ) The file extension '' DivX'' '' divx '' AVI or '' avi '' should be assigned to the
DivX files.

( H ) You may encounter trouble in playing MP3 / DivX files or displaying the
information of MP3 / DivX files recorded with certain writing software
or CD / DVD recorders.

( I ) This unit does not play list function

( J ) Although Multi-Session recording is supported the use of Disc-at Once
is not recommended.

NOTE

Apple HSF , UDF 1.50 Mix CD and Extra are not supported

DivX data created using Ver 3 8k- 320 kbs YES 8 - 48 kHz

Not too sure what the following means...?

This Player cannot play the CD-R / RW disks which contain other

could this be the problem ...?

Thanks Mypenry

mypenry >>
How positive are you that the CD's contain mp3's? To check place one of the CD's into a NORMAL CD PLAYER (e.g. an audio CD player only such as a hifi.) If music comes out then the CD's don't have mp3's on them.

1) Do the mp3's play when you copy them to the computer from the CD?
2) Open one of the files in windows media player, go to FILE and choose PROPERTIES a description of the track/file will appear.
3) Check the format and bit rate your in-car stereo supports.

If the above doesen't work then get back to us!!
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

I'd copy it to my computer, then change the format to something else (wma propably) then change them all back to mp3, burn them to a CD-R and try it (just do one CD so you're not wasting to much if it doesn't work). You could also try converting them from the format they're in now right to DivX and them burn them to a CD and try that. As per the manual, it may just be having difficulty reading the mp3's on the CD due to the software/program that was used to burn the CD.

Not too sure what the following means...?

This Player cannot play the CD-R / RW disks which contain other
than CD-DA or MP3 / DivX data

could this be the problem ...?


Doubtfull-->what this is saying is that the deck won't read CD's that are not MP3 or DivX format. Meaning that if you have a disc that's all WMA (Windows Media Audio), then it will not read that CD.

It maybe worth looking at what "bitrate" your car stereo can support. If you don't have a manual, you could google the make and see what pops up, alternatively post the make and model here and we maybe able to help.

Also try using some other CD media, as some stereo's are very fussy with cheap or obscure CD brands. I find DataWrite, Memorex, Traxxdata work well in my experience.

Aditionally, I would do as stevealmighty said, and convert to another format, preferably 128kbps @ 44.41khz 16bit audio mp3.
