    windows media player ? go find Cheetah or something like that as a burner
    diff burners burn at diff speeds. certain players will only play at a certain speed like car is slower speed unless you have top end stuff.
    try slowing burn down to say like 2 or 4 and see if same results
    make sure disks support the speed you burn at

    Media player has allways sucked to me far as audio quality
    You said you used a diff burner and was ok, that answers your ?
    EDIT in fact I removed all them Media mess features when I reinstalled yesterday and I use VLC media player

    For a start, you should use a wav files on a cd :) I think the pioneer's can actually play wav files, but the true audio cd format is different. The only files you'll see on a true audio cd in a computer is with an extension .cda and the files size will be minute as they're merely references. I'm not including the cd's that have special pc content on them, in which case an audio player see's the disk as an audio cd and the computer see's the extra content.

    Most car CD players now play mp3's, wma's, some even do m4a's, so why not use one of those formats as you'll fit a lot more on one disk! Using a good encoder, settings, and bitrate mode you can get 'transparent' audio with quite small files. 'Transparent' audio means audioally identical, but not necessarily lossless. I have yet to see a realistic programme that uses the best settings, the latest codecs, and utilises an easy to use interface. By realistic I mean not code inefficent programmes and or those that cost a lot of money for something overly simplistic. Good free frontends and usually configurable though and you can add the latest codecs yourself.

    The last issue is, the latest headunits have USB slots on them, why not utilise that? Ideally either get an extremely short USB stick or use a low profile USB extension cable and plug it in the end of that. Least you don't have to worry about burning disks everytime you want a change in music (simply delete and copy over new files) :)

    All just different options but things to consider!
