    OK- couple of questions.

    1. Why is my OEM Honda 6 disc changer stereo not playing burned CD's correctly?

    2. If I get an Ipod and want to hook it up to this same stereo, can I?
    ps- My stereo can play the tracks but it's not transitioning over to the next song correctly? Maybe add some space between them?

    1. Because CD-R's require much more sensitive lasers than regular CD's. Not all CD players will play them. I believe Honda uses OEM Alpines, but they may be a pretty old design that isn't quite rated for CD-Rs.

    Here's something to try. Use CD-Rs that are rates a slowly as possible, like 1x-4x. Might be hard to find any more with everything being rated up to 16x and 32x.

    Then, burn at the slowest speed, like 1x or 2x. If the pits are better defined your changer *might* have an easier time with them.

    2.
