LG burner, model GCE-8520B, CD's not working in car

Postby warrick on Wed Jun 04, 2003 8:33 am

I have two LG burners, model GCE-8520B installed in the same PC that work OK using the NERO software supplied. The problem I have is audio discs I burn will work on every CD player I have tried except for my car, a 1999 camry with factory fitted player.
I have tried both burners, burning at the slowest speed possible, using disc copy and transferring tracks individually, without success.
Discs burnt by other people do work OK in the car. I have tried using the same software they are using. but it will not recognise the LG burners.

I would appreciate any help or suggestions you might have.


Thanks and best regards....Warrick

What discs are you using? The discs burned by other people that work in the car, are they 74 minute or 80 minute discs? Which specific brand/manufacturer? Try to replicate the same discs they use that work in the car.

I am at work at the moment and don't have details to all the disc types. But I have tried the same Sony 80 min discs, burnt by a friend, that worked OK...no luck
Thanks for helping...Warrick

FWIW, I have a '95 Camry that chokes on just about all the discs I burn. I think it's the sub-par head unit they put in the car. On the other hand, my discs play fine on the Pioneer Premier H/U I installed in my Accord. BTW, all discs burned on a 8520B using T-Y media.
