    I can't get my new CDP-CX455 to play my MP3 encoded CDs. They play fine on my computer but my changer can't play them. The track info is there but total silence. I burned the CD using Nero and chose MP3 as my disc type. Can this have something to do with file naming conventions? Any ideas?

    First of all, make sure that you are using the analog connection when playing MP3's. For some reason Sony decided to disable the digital output for MP3 playback. This is mentioned in the manual, but it is easy to miss.

    If that doesn't do it, then try burning the CD-ROM with the ISO9660 file system. Place the MP3 files into folders, with each folder being an album (or a collection of singles if you want). While you can technically make folders multiple levels deep, the CD changer does not let you "navigate" the file system in the same way that a computer does. It will simply take each folder with one or more MP3s in it, and add it to its list of "album"s, which you select one of with album +/-.
