I don't have an iPod, but I do have a (cheap Jensen) CD/CD-R/mp3 player in my car. I figured I could just burn CDs of .mp3 files and play the discs in the car. No such luck. The player recognizes some older CD-Rs I made using a third-party mp3 encoder, but not my iTunes stuff. I can't figure it out -- I've tried burning different file types (audio CD, mp3, even data fies), I've tried renaming the files, and nothing. Am I stuck with spending lots of money on a new player (or an iPod), or do you folks have any other troubleshooting thoughts? Thanks much.
