I'm creating an MP3 of original charts, no big deal, but this has got me...
The source material for the MP3s are Print Music 2014, and Im pretty familiar with the process.
The resultant MP3s play back just fine on my Mac. and after burning them to a CD (Using the BURN FOLDER method),
I played the MP3s from this new CD on my CD player adjacent to the Mac, and again, no problem
I took the CD out to my vehicle, stuck it in, hit play, and whoops, "ERROR"
I removed the CD and replaced it with a different CD, and it played back just fine...

I don't have another CD player so I can't do an A vs B comparison, so:-
HUH !!!

Any suggestion appreciated,,,

Just a guess-

I always add mp3 files to iTunes, put them in a playlist and then burn that playlist to CD. One thing I've noticed is that this method gives you 3 or so choices of format - I always choose "Music CD".

Maybe I'm going about it the roundabout way, but my CDs always play. Maybe someone else can detail the correct process for you.

I've no idea of the technical whys and wherefores, but over the years I've sometimes encountered a CD which won't play in one machine, but will in another. Sometimes this happens with commercially recorded and 'pressed' CDs, but it happens more often with home copied ones. It's not normal, but neither is it wildly extraordinary.

FWIW, I've also had difficulty on occasion with commercially recorded DVDs. The only ones I buy are opera DVDs*, but last year a whole batch of Opus Arte ones froze when played on Apple's USB optical drive through my desktop Mac linked to my hi-fi if I didn't select 'surround sound', even though my hi-fi is limited to stereo. The latest DVDs from the same source are OK, though.

It's worth mentioning that CDs or DVDs that won't eject are potentially less of a hazard if the optical drive is a separate unit.

*Not the same, but opera DVDs are a useful way for me to gauge performers and productions from around the world without the need to venture furth from Scotland, or even from my mildly isolated house.

If you burn "folder", I presume what the burner does is creating a CD with mp3's, not an audio CD. Quite a few CD players know how to play mp3's, but not all. Could that be your problem with the other player? A "normal" CD contains uncompressed audio (AIFF), not mp3's.

Just a short update:
The CD with which I'm having the problem plays back with no problem in my wife's vehicle.
So I have to assume that my wife's 2013 Toyota has some updated software that my 2003 Toyota Tundra does not.

I'm about to try the "create a playlist" in iTunes as suggested - I've never used iTunes, so we'll see...

Thank you all for your assistance.

As was pointed out earlier, you are making an MP3 disc, which is just a data disc with a selection of MP3 files burned on it.  Many modern CD players, e.g circa 2013, can read and play an MP3 disc, but older ones cannot, e.g. circa 2003.  If you burn your MP3 files to a disc in actual Audio CD format, the MP3 files will be converted to CDA files before being written to disk.  Then the CD will most likely play in any CD drive.  Also do not use a re-writable CD, i.e. a CDRW, if possible, since many older CD drives will not be able to read them either.

Wierdness, BTW is incorrect, it should be weirdness.
