Creating MP3 Data CD's for Audio 20 - A Class

Following the purchase of my A Class Mercedes, I have noticed that accoridng to the Audio manual you can create MP3 Data CD's to play in the car.
However after several failed attempts, I am unable to complete this
task. Has anyone had success created data CDs for their car and if so what software was used?
I have tried 2 different MP3 creators and 3 different burn applications all to no avail. Any help will be gratefuly received.

Also ask at your local dealer. At least some should have electronics/audio specialists.

commonly known that the MB head units are finicky about user rolled MP3s. you should try burning using very slow speed, test/burn setting (instead of just simple burning), or even verying the intensity of the laser if your burner allows.

Thanks for the replys.
I have tried different burn speeds and testing beforehand all to no avail. I have sent an email to Mercedes to see if they can shed any light.
I was hoping that someone out there has managed to produce MP3's on this system and can advice me what they used.

Hi, I don't know too much about this subject but I've found the information contained at;
www.baby-benz.com
very useful. There are several forums therein that might be worth a post.
One thing though... I've not seen any documentation that describes the Audio 20 as being MP3 compatiable. Are you sure it is? I've seen talk of it handling CD-R, but not MP3. I'd be interested if there's a web resource that mentions MP3 and Audio 20 in the same sentance.

This is an extract from the Owner's Manual Audio 20
"Compatible MP3 Data Media - When in MP3 mode, the CD changer can read the following types of data media: CD-DA, CD-R and CD-RW"
"Compatible File Systems and Compression Types - The following compression types are compatible MP2, WMA and WAV" Only use MP3 tracks with a minimum bit rate of 128 kBit/s and with stated scan rates.
There is no mention that this is for a different device, i.e. no astrix marking that this may not be an option on some models.
I will check out your link to see if that can shed any light.
Thanks

Do you have the MP3 compatible CD changer ? I have an Audio 20 in my C class but I can't get it to read MP3 discs either. The newer version of the 6 CD changer should be able to read MP3 discs though.

Don't you find it frustrating that one DVD holds more MP3's than an entire CD changer full of MP3 CD's. Why are the car & car audio makers so behind in technology? A Taiwanese player costs practically the same as a CD player.
