    You want to burn in MP3 format, I use Windows music player and have burned alot of discs with 110-120 songs with no prob. I usually put a blank cd in and let windows convert them to Mp3 and then you can save that playlist. Add to this list until you have about 100, burn to disc. Done

    I tried this with mine, and it would only play about 1/3 of the songs on the disc. I've been having this problem from the beginning. Dealer says it's the discs. They even played a disc in some new bikes. It played in some, but not in others. It's frustrating, and I'm still trying to find a way to burn that works. Discs burned in CD format play fine; it's the mp3 format that is hit-or-miss.

    I've updated the bike's software, tried Windows Media, Realaudio, and Roxio. All with the same results. Any other suggestions or advise?

    I've been using Maxell CD-R discs, but maybe need to try something else. Funny thing is they play fine in my car's player, and play well on the bike if recorded in cd format. I did try a cleaning disc in the player, and immediately after cleaning the data CD disc played most of the songs while sitting in the garage. I guess the H-K player is just exceptionally picky about what it will play.
