Strange MP3 CD Problem

I have always burned MP3 cds just by burning th mp3s to a data cd. However, i just burned an MP3 cd that wouldn't work in my car mp3 player (Pioneer Premier). It just says FRMTREAD and appears to shut down, turn back on, show FRMTREAD and continue on that cycle. When i put a working MP# cd in it says FRMTREAD for a couple seconds then plays the cd. This one doesn't work at all. All the iso names are different and i tried reburning the cd twice, but no luck. All the mp3s work in itunes and on my iPod.

Try a different brand of CD-R media. Some media just seem incompatible with some CD players. Avoid CD-RW media for most car CD players. Also, if you are using 80 minute CD-Rs, try using shorter ones--the 80 minute CD-Rs violate the Orange Book and thus are incompatible with some players.
