Burning CD question

Disclaimer: I own all the CDs I have been burning.

I have been burning single track from some on my CDs onto discs for use in the car. I have had a little trouble playing them back on the Nakamichi, but I have had a lot of trouble getting them to play in the car. They skip a lot.

I have been using Verbatim DVD+R discs and burning at 128.

Any idea why these are playing so poorly?

Thats a new one to me, my CDR burner will not even read a DVDR disc. Try a CDR blank disc, see how that works....
Unless there is something wrong with the transport in your car (in which case all CDs you played would/should skip) my guess is the problem lies in your burning way too fast.

Most composers and musicians I know won't burn music faster than 4x even though their equipment allows speeds up to 48x or more. Don't ask me why slower is so much more important with music and not data -- they don't know either, but they all say they can hear the difference. And they don't skip!
If a CDR is designed to be burned at high speed, it is best to burn them so. If you are going to burn at slow speeds it is best to use media designed for slow speed burning. Disc errors can occur from using media incorrectly. HHB makes CDRs just for slow speed recording.
I had the same problem with Sony CD-R's. They would play perfectly on various inside players, but would skip and hang-up in the car when other burned cd's played fine. Someone told me that the problem had to do with the "reflectivity" of the disk and to try burning at a slower speed. I experimented with different burn speeds (4x, 2x, and 1x), but still had the same problem, although to a lesser extent on 2x and 1x disks. I finally put the Sony's aside, bought some Taiyo Yuden CD-R's and no longer have any problems. By the way, the Taiyo Yuden disks are less reflective and show a magnified image compared to the Sony's mirrorlike finish. Go figure.

I have to admit I am totally confused. Am I wrong in my thinking that a DVD+R disc will not, or should not, play in a CDP.
I am assuming a mistake was made about DVDRs being the recording medium. Although, DVDRs can be used to store audio files, I don't think they will play in a CD player unless they are converted to wave files and put on a CDR.
I've had the best results with Sony CD-R's. It's been the only brand I use over the past 4-5 years, and never had a problem. I too, burn my cd's only for my car's audio.
The burned discs are playing on my fifteen year old Nackamichi, but have a problem with skipping when I play them in the car. I amusing the Windows program to do the burning.

The discs skip occasionally with the Nackamichi but generally in the outer tracks. In the car the first few tracks play without skipping, but by the middle they skip almost constantly.

Does that help at all?
I would try using some other media. My sony s9000es plays only burned Maxell CD-R Pro.
Okay, I lied! I was looking at the wrong box of CDs. The ones I have been using are Philips CD-R. Please can you find it in your heart to forgive me.

Does that make any difference?
Maxells are made by Taiyo I read somewhere.
