I have a 2002 Honda Civic EX. The radio is fine except that it
doesn't play MP3s. I'd like the same kind of radio but one that plays
MP3s and has the little anti theft red blinking light. I'm guessing
I'll have to find it on eBay since everything now uses the detachable
faceplate, which I don't want. Any suggestions on a model that has
the blinking light and plays MP3s from a CD? Maybe a newer Civic
My CR-V built 09/2002 plays MP3 CDroms! It has the red blinking LED,
Could you make a MP3 CD in another computer burner? I noticed sometimes
different burners can't really create decent MP3 CDroms. I burn all of
mine in the FREE Mepis Linux, http://www.mepis.org
I did notice one weirdness, after inserting the MP3 CD and playing some
of it, my wife reached over and hit the FM button.
Then, no MP3 CD would play, until we disconnected the battery cable and
that forced the radio to reboot from it's internal BIOS program, after
which MP3 plays.
Now, we eject the CD FIRST, before playing the radio.
Remember, you'll need the radio code to put into the radio, after you
pull the battery cable!
Please let us know what you find out!
Thanks on this info. That sounds like a lot of trouble. I'm also
still waiting for the used car dealer to get the radio code. Who
knows when that will be. One important feature I need is that when
the car is turned off, the CD player pauses at that point on the MP3.
Then when it is cranked up again, it starts from that point. It
seems that every new radio on the market now does that. Does yours
I'll try another burner and post back. I'm using Roxio CD Creator
now. Does anyone have suggestions for Windows?
That won't work because it makes you add all of your files one by one.
I think the thread is getting sidetracked. It isn't so much the
burning software as finding the type of radio mentioned above.
