Ok, I am gonna borrow a friends Portable CD-RW since I'm too lazy to buy my own CD-RW, and I want some free software (or at least a trial) that will let me burn my music from my Computer and make it so that I can play the music in something besides another computer/xbox/ps2/portable cd player. You know, things that don't have the capability to play discs that have been burnt, like my 98 Grand Prix GTP. It has the stock CD player and probably won't play the burnt discs, and I don't much feel like wasting a CD-R just to see if it would. Anyone got any help? Thanks.

If you have Windows Media, Musicmatch, iTunes, Winamp... whatever, it will do it. Whatever program you use to organize and listen to your music, you can use it. Just make the playlist that you want to burn, open up the program and pop in a blank CD. If it doesn't automatically see the blank CD after it spins up and ask you what you want to burn, look through the menu bar at the top for something along the lines of "burn playlist to CD".

well i dont really think that was what he was asking from what i understand you want to be able to use a cd-rw in a home cd player? as far as i know you cant do that as i have tried several times when i have run out of cd-r's i believe you cant do this because the entire format to write on a cd-rw is different from wrighting on a cd-r and that makes it impossible to read from a cd player

You can burn a CD-R in a CD-RW drive. Besides, there are data CDR's, and ones made specifically for audio CD's (appropriately called Music CDs). Any of these types of CD's (anything but a re-writable CD) will work in a normal CD player if you burn it with a music program and specify that you want an Audio CD, as opposed to an MP3 CD. You shouldn't need any special software as long as the CD's themselves arent re-writable. I'm assuming in all this that when you say your firends 'Portable CD-RW' you mean an actual burner, and not a CD. I think I just said 'CD' about 15 times. Hopefully you can follow it.

my brother's 1999 grand prix gt plays burnt cd's just fine. i would assume the 1998 model does too, unless you somehow were able to replace the massively huge head unit, and get a cd player that doesn't play burnt cd's

Both My '96 and '99 Chrysler Town & Country minivans would play burnt cd-r's with the OEM cd player, as will my old junk shelf radio from the early 90s.

And as for wasting a cd-r to test it in the '98 Pontiac, we're only talking about a $0.20 cent disc here.

For burning, I think you can get Nero burning rom on a trial basis, and it works just fine for audio CDs. Roxio Easy Media Creator works pretty good as well. Plus, while I don't recommand using it for burning, I think that Windows Media Player is capable of making a music cd.
