RW may not work unless you finalize it or whatever it's called. It's also brand dependent sometimes. CD-R is a better choice and works 99% of the time
I'm not 100% sure of this but i think that if you "finalize" a cd-rw, then you won't be able to write to it anymore.

You gotta get the upgraded changer to read MP3 CDs. I dont even think the newest M5s (e39) came with this.

I think that the problem is the disc. I burn many discs using I Tunes and they play in any car I have used them in. It should convert the files into a WAV file from and MP3 automatically. The only difference is all the discs I use are CD R. I also believe I have seen certain audio companies (Alpine etc..) who market their players as CD R compatible.

CD-R works, CD -RW don't work. You will have to upgrade you changer to a new one. Most new cd players today accept CD-RW.
