I just installed a king cabs 6disc indash cd changer into my crew cab. It can play MP3 cds but I am not sure what CD type it can handle. Will CD-RWs work? it would be nice becuase then I can change the music on the cds whenever I want. I plan to connect my IPOD to the stereo in the future but until then I would use the CDs (my music is all backed up on CD-RWs already)

I just tried a CD-RW with about 20 songs on it and the head unit gave me one of the errors and it wouldnt play the disk.

I'm not sure because I don't have the mp3 capable player but you might have to close the disc when burning if you didn't do that already. It also might be sensitive to the quality of media.

It would be pointless to use a CD-RW if I have to close it. Guess I will just wait till I get the PAC AAI-NIS2 I ordered to connect my IPOD. I was hoping since I could use CD-RWs in my fathers car and my best friends car that this MP3 player stereo would also.

Maverick,

I've got a similar HU in my Fronty. I burn CDs (on CD-R/Ws) and don't have any problems at all with playback. I do "close" the CD after burning. Closing it does NOT prevent you from adding songs later. To make it even easier, assign your songs shorter names that will display on your HU without the need for scrolling. Lastly, ensure that you've changed your display mode on the HU to reflect 'mp3's'.

Hope this helps.

evmac, I was under the impression that when you "close" a CD-RW you can only add, but not remove songs. Since I dont always listen to the same songs, I like to grab the songs I listen to most and put them on a CD-RW to listen to in my dads car. This way I can always vary my playlist though my computer and add/remove songs.

Do you do any special format? Are the created as music cds or do you format them as data disc and then drag & drop files onto it like a floppy. My friends CD-RW are formated like floppies so he just drags and drops the songs on and off the CD and they play fine in his unit.

No matter how many time you write and close a CD-RW you can always rewrite over it. I burn MP3's on CD-R and CD-RW and they both work in the CD player in my truck, if they are closed or not. I use ITunes to burn all of my CD's, but I don't think it should matter what program is used to burn the CD as long as the files are MP3 or WAV.

StormNismo . . . summed it up pretty well. No special formating required. A "closed' CD-R/W is only closed for that recording session. It can be reused over and over and over . . . well you get the drift.
