Anybody tried making an MP3 disc and play it in your shaker 1000.
I have, in fact I fit about 200 of my faves on 1 80MB CDR. My question is that I use Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 and when I try & organize the songs into folders, the Shaker reads the disc and just fast forwards without sound through the disc. I've tried pressing different buttons with no luck. Any ideas of what I'm doing wrong. Is it something to do with the folder track mode??

My Shaker500 works perfectly with MP3 discs I burned with NERO. I have the entire Led Zeppelin 10cd catalogue on two discs burnt at 192-320kbps quality. Folder/Track mode only affects how the shuffle operates I believe. At least that is the only effect I have noticed.

I use the same program, but I used a music CD, dunno if that makes any differance??

I have been using 700MB CD-R and burning with Toast and have not had an issue. Check your settings and make sure you are burning a music cd and not a data cd.

I've been running a couple lately. rip the CD to the PC with windows Media Playa, and then burn it with Nero. Two issues I've been through: you have to watch the file type when ripping, it has to be mp3 specifically. The default on media playa is .wma - which the shaker can't read, of course. also, the default adds the track number in the file name, so it organized them in numerical order when burned. Also, the burn program has to be set to create a data disc, not a music disk. I don't think either of these is specific to the trouble you are having, but I bet it IS something in the burn parameters

I burn mine using Nero as a Data CD.
It doesnt matter if I folder them or not they play just fine.
The shaker reads them in folder mode or Track mode.
I keep mine in Track mode.
I think it uses the Folder mode as a disc start position. Then I can jump ahead to a position on the disc (the directory)and start from that point.
I havent directoried more than one deep though.
Also FYI.
It wont read a DVD disc.
Bummer, that would have been awsome.

If you burn a music CD then you no longer have mp3's. Check and make sure you are closing the cd out.

The difference between Folder and Track mode only has an effect on if you are shuffling or not. If you are in Folder mode, the shuffle is limited to those tracks in one folder. If in Track mode, it will shuffle the entire disc.

you should be burning as data...not music. I have a feeling that you are burning the files as .wma and not .mp3's....Some new CD players can read .wma files but the shakers can not.

It does not matter whether the files are in a folder or not. The ones not ina folder will be displayed as in the 1st folder, then other foldered files will be their correct "book" so you can use the disc kind of like a CD changer.

I have been burning them as a MP3 CD not as a Music CD as I said above. Sorry for the confusion. I was letting the dogs out at lunch and posted a quick reply.
