Just when I think I have mastered making CD's, I encounter another challenge. My Crosley Director will play back a CD on which I have copied a commercial music CD album. However it will not play back a CD on which I have copied individual MP3 songs. A message appears on the screen: NO TOC CD-RW as if the CD was not finalized, but it was finalized. Any thoughts on what's going on here?

My guess is it's a matter of formats. Your Crosley can play uncompressed formats, such as that used for standard CDs, but not compressed formats like MP3. You'll need to convert your MP3 files to an uncompressed format (WAV or AIFF) before copying them to CD. This will make those files much larger, of course, but will not alter the sound, either for better or worse.

By any chance are you using iTunes to burn your CDs?

Converting the mp3 files to wav resolved the problem. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! I may need more help when I try to copy LP records and cassette tapes to CD's with the Crosley Director.smile.gif
