it depends on what format you burned the CD. make sure it is an acceptable format. i.e. i don't think it will play .AAC files.

On occasion. There's many stories out there of certain brand CD players that don't like certain brands of CD-Rs... Don't know why, they just don't get along. Try another brand, couldn't hurt. I've never had an issue with Memorex or Sony

okay, #1 didn't work..
I even try to copy the whole CD using (well...) Copy CD commend, no luck...

The only thing left is trying #2...

This is very weird...

If you tried Nero and it did not work either then I would say item #1 above is your issue.

The exact same thing happened to a friend of mine with a Honda Civic and his MP3 CD's; using iTunes to burn MP3 CD's fixed his problem. However, VW MP3 OEM HU doesn't have any issue playing MP3 burned in either Audio or MP3 CD format using iTunes.
