    Mine won't play CD-Rs I've made with my PC. Anyone else have this problem?

    No problems at all once they are finalized. CD-R's are about 95% of what I practice with. The CD-BT1 will not play unfinalized CD-R's. Not sure if that's your particular problem or not though.

    No, that's not the problem. I'm using finalized CD-Rs. When I first tried it, it worked fine. But after a few minutes it acted like it couldn't read the CD. Regular CDs work fine and the CD-Rs I've tried work fine in other players. Maybe it's a defective unit.

    Mine works fine with CD-Rs. I would suggest slowing down the burning speed to get a more accurate burn or try a different brand of disks. i use the black CD-Rs from Memorex and they work in everything i own exceptionally well, but they dont work some of my friends equipment.

    I thought I was the only one with that problem.

    About a minute or so into a song it turns itself off then it won't read the cd at all. When it was new it worked great.

    Mine eats batteries like a mofo too.

    I haven't had any probs reading CDr's yet and I bought the power supply to curb the battery eating..

    Mine is a battery eater too. I blamed the CDR issue on the batteries. i dont use it much. Ill try again and get back to you.

    No problems here.

    If it's not a power problem, take it in for warranty repair or replacement.

    you have to burn audio cds at a low speed... 1-4x MAX!.. Any higher than that you will have problems... and nasty digital compression, and noticable audio fidelity loss...

    No problem playing CD-R's here, but as others have posted I burn at 4X. It's not like I have better ways to spend my time. ;)

    It appears that my problem is the brand of CD-R I'm using. Imation discs don't work; TDKs do. So, there you go.

    BTW, I tried burning the Imation CDs at 4X -- still wouldn't work.
