I'm burning my own audio recordings on CDs and I want to be certain that the discs can be played in every CD player, not only in new models, which may even support plain MP3 files. Can I use a rewritable CD (CD-RW)? If CD-RW is less compatible, does CD-R always work? How to convert files to a supported audio format and burn in a correct hierarchy?
I experimented with Burrrn (no longer in development) -- my newer portable CD player can play the CD (CD-R), but Pioneer PD-207 doesn't detect the disc.
