If the boombox has the ability to play MP3s, then yes, it should work fine. Not all devices can read MP3 discs, but it should say on the front of the Boombox if it can. You could also look in the instruction manual.

Be aware though that CD-RWs are harder to read than CD-Rs so you might have issues with them.

There is no + or - R for CDs, that only applies to DVDs. You can also tell if it's an RW by looking at the back. RW CDs are a darker grey color then R CDs

Thank you THX 1138

Do you know for sure if you can play MP3 encoded CDs on a boombox that plays CD-R and CD-RW discs?

I am shopping for a new portable boombox type MP3CD player. Some have spec sheets that say they can play MP3CDs, others just say they can play CD-R and or CD-RW.
