    What software are you using to burn CD's?
    Are you burning standard audio CD's or MP3 CD's?
    What format does P2P use, mp3 or mp4?
    there are so many variations on the mp format I'd try using one of the freebie MP3 converters and convert the files to WAV for audio CD creation

    get a copy of nero. This will do the correct conversion for you, depending on what you want to create..

    i have nero, you just open a new audio disc template and then drag the mp3 files into the window of what is to be burned to disc and it converts them for you. You will see the bar along the bottem going up as you add them.

    What's not working the actual burning process or the CD once it's finished?
    Do you get errors or does the CD simply not work in a CD player?
    Some CD players are fussy over the type of CD-R you use, best to stick to proper Audio ones than generic CD-R's. Also try burning them at a slower speed.

    I have used p2p before and all I did was ...once they are downloaded, right click them and open with windows media. Each time you open a track you have downloaded they will move to windows media player library. Create a new playlist with the tracks you want to burn in windows media. Insert a cd and click burn. Windows converts and burns the disc. After the last track is burnt it says 'closing disc' Everything should be fine then. Only problem I have ever had is my oem 6 disc changer will only read certain types of discs and just says cannot read.

    I assume you can successfully write other files to cd-r?

    ok check the files, see what they end with

    .mp3 .wma .wav etc

    play them on your comp to see if they actually work

    in nero, click on audio cd not data or mp3

    drag or add the files in, then burn, try them in your car, if it doesnt work try on your hi-fi

    see what happens
