    Is it possible that backed up cds do not work on a specific cd-player?
    In my case my car-radio?

    I'm 100% that they are correct and working, but my car-radio says there is an error reading the cd.

    I burned the music on a CD-R.

    I haven't seen that problem.
    Try making one with ImgBurn.

    'Create image file from disc'
    Then 'Write image file to disc'.

    I've seen that happen before. Some burned CD's wouldn't play in Chrysler products but work in others.It could also be a DRM issue. Sometime you have to rip the Cd's from the original first then copy them to a CD. Most of them won't play if they are copied to a CD-RW either. make sure it converts them to a CDA file and not an MP3.

    If you converted the original format to mp3, older auto players will not play mp3's.

    Other then that, like it was said, it's the copy protection.

    I will assume it is a regular audio CDs not mp3 CDs. Burned CDs are not as reflective as foil CDs so less light is reflected back to the receptor. Most modern CD players will read burned CDs easily. Burn speed may make a difference. Imgburn is good so is Media Monkey. I would try both the burn speed will have more impact than the quality of the media. Audio CD format is not very demanding and allows for a slower burn.

    lots of car and standalone cd players made after the advent of cd-r are limited in what they will read.. my philips on my stack won't play r-w and my bedroom blaster won't play any burned disks at all.. sometimes you are just plain out of luck.

    True...
    Slowing the burn rate down to about 2x makes the CDs, not DVDs, as easy to read as they can be. Burns that slow might ruin a DVD. Burning slow might not be enough but that is about all you can do. Cost is not an indication of the quality of the player. For example cheap Sony readers are made in China are more likely to read burned CD than the expensive ones made in Japan. If anything the cheaper ones do better than the expensive ones. That is true for DVDs as well as CDs.
