Why dont MP3 cd's work?

I have a 2008 M3, and When i rip a MP3 cd, it doesnt play some/most of the songs. It has no problem playing a regular cd, but it does with MP3's.

Also, when i rip songs from youtube, i cant play ONE song off the mp3 cd. Please help.

Maybe its the type of cd im using?

Mine plays MP3 cd's fine. I currently have a CD in the car with like 5 albums rip'd on it, plays fine. I have no NAV and no upgraded sound system.

Hey man, how the hell did you do that? I converted CD files to MP3 hoping to fill a lot more tracks than on a CD, but could only burn 16, just like the CD. Was told the smaller files sound bad. Is that true? I used Windows Media Player, with the second highest resolution, I think. And 2 songs sounded like if they were skipping (remember those days? ); wonder what the hell happened there.
What's the lowest 'resolution' you can use without noticeable sound quality degradation? Thx.

128 is borderline with 192 being optimal. You should be able to put a lot more songs on a disc.

I can't seem to get any MP3 playback on my car with no iPhone, Nav or premium sound. The discs work fine in my wife's 335 with iPod. Went to the dealer to ask what the hell. They had no clue either.
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
