Solved What kind of a disc do I need?

Specs: Vehicle Radio
I got some music on a free disc, tried CD-R(Verbatim) in my car, but CD player pushed it out, then I found some discs at home, one of which was an album of a singer, it worked. Only difference I noticed on discs was that little logo ''Compact disc(Recordable/Digital Audio), that free disc had Recordable and the album had Digital Audio. Also in the car, next to the place you put your disc in was a logo ''Compact Disc Digital Audio'', so I assumed it does not support Recordable. Only Digital Audio works there? What's the difference? Can I buy a Digital Audio one and download music on it too?

✔ Best Answer
Check the file format on the discs. Standard audio CDs use the .CDA file extension & are generally playable in all CD players. If the files on the "free disc" use the .MP3 extension, they can only be played on players that support MP3s.

If that turns out to be the case, you can reburn the "free disc" to a new audio disc & the burning software will automatically convert the .MP3s to .CDAs. Try CDBurnerXP:

It's very simple. Just download & install CDBurnerXP, double click on the desktop icon, & you'll be greeted by the following screen -

Select Audio Disc & pick which MP3s you want to burn to the new disc. Be aware that MP3s are highly compressed. When they are converted to CDAs, they will take up much more space on the disc so depending on how many MP3s you have, they may not all fit on one disc.

Alright, I got some songs on the disc, I thought I need to tick that I need it to convert them to CDA somewhere, but assuming by your answer it does it by default, so I got the songs, clicked Burn, got a menu with burn speed, pause between the songs etc.

Thanks a lot for your help!
