Fellow Terracan Owners

I have the new diesel Terracan and my CD player is playing up. When playing burnt CD's they play for about half the disc then sound like they have dust on them and won't play properly. New CD's seem to be OK. Also when on rough dirt roads it will just stop playing. Both burnt CD's and new ones. Just wondering if other owners have had any problems before I march off the the local Hyundai dealer for some answers and to get it fixed.
Thanks

A few suggestions:
Buy brand name CD blanks, Drop down the speed at which you write- the lower the speed, the more stable the write), make sure the CD is finalised, do not write on the CDs with ordinary markers, or pens- the solvents can erode the CD foil layer, and ballpoints can distort the foil.
With the stopping playing it is common when a CD player has alot of read errors- trying some of the suggestions above should get you a better read.

Keep in mind that burnt CDs are more fragile that stamped CDs too, so heat and scratches are more damaging.

Stoutman,
I also have been having the same problems with burnt CD's in MP3 format. Always seems to happen further into the CD as you mentioned. I get the feeling it must be a product feature with us both experiencing the problem!!!!

Cheers

Hi all

Remember that not all CD players are able to read CD/R, CD/RW and MP3.
If your’s is compatible with teas then it could be a few thing’s
1. The burn program you r using or the speed it is burning at.
2. The CD burner it self (I remember in my last car that the CD player would read CD from my Sony CD burner but wouldn’t read CD’s from any other CD burner.
3. The lens may have a scratch or dust on it.
4. It may get to a song that it doesn’t like the look of and stop even my alpine stacker dose this occasionally.

Also it will skip on ruff road’s especially if it is a factory one. The one in my cousin’s 100 series lasts about 5 min on corrugated roads before it throes it in.

If it is a stacker then it may do better as they tend to be a bit more vibration proof.

I ripped mine to MP3 format with Windows Media Player, then burnt them to the CD in MP3 format with Nero. They can take a while to recognise, but once playing I never have a problem. Just one question though, are you able to random play the whole MP3 CD or only within albums on the CD? I managed to fit 145 tracks onto one CD.
