Anyone who has a 93 Mustang with factory CD player have any idea what file formats it will play? I understand that the reason why my CDs wont play is due to the fact that modern CDs are written with different formats but I was thinking I could change mp3s to a different format that the stock CD player could read

Retail CD's come in a CDA format. Although burning a CD in CDA format isn't a guarantee that it'll work. Use CD-R's and hope that the player will read them. If not, you'll need to get a newer player.

I tried retail CDs as well and they wont play either, I guess it just must be broke. I was reading on another thread that a guy sent his in to be repaired and it has worked fine since. He didn't specify where he sent it to be repaired however.

Do you have to keep it stock?

If not, you can get a pretty decent CD-player that'll play any media format and burnt CDs for 200$ or less.

i have a great alpine unit that cost 125, plays cd's has a bluetooth hook up if you get the box and wire (i did, can wirelessly play music from a phone, and get calls thru your stereo, comes with mic and all) and a front aux in, its a few years old, so im sure the new units in that price range will be even better, it was a big diffrence going from stock to a good quality head unit

The car is completely stock right now with just over 3,000 miles on it so I would like to keep the CD player in it, as it is rare to find one that has a stock radio, let alone one that works after 18 years. Have any idea where I could send it to get it fixed?
