And burn an audio cd and finalize it. You probably used Roxio and probably did everything right EXCEPT for your choice of cd media. As I said in my previous post, most regular cd players will not play cd-rw discs unless it specifically says so on the player. Those that play these will have a CD-RW notation on the player itself that shouldn't be hard to miss.
If burning to cd-r still doesn't work, check to make sure that the the cd was finalized. Once a cd is finalized, you can't add anything more to it. However, when you're burning an audio cd with Roxio, the program should automatically do this. So, finalization shouldn't be a problem. You should be able to view the burning progress in Roxio (or any other burning program) and toward the end, it will say it is "finalizing."
Another issue may be that your cd player will not play non-commercially produced cds (ie, burned on your computer), but that is rare unless you have a really old cd player. I would venture to guess older than 10 years, but I've seen older players than that play these.
There could be other issues, but start with the cd-r first. The cd-rw you burned should be playable on most computers.
