MP3 CD for use in MP3-CD Player

I've been using linux without using windows at all for about 6 months, so far I've been surviving, but I've had a few problems. One is that I cannot figure out what program I should use to burn an Mp3-CD and have it actually work in my Mp3-CD player. When I used to use windows and burn data CDs with nero burning rom and only have *.mp3 files they would work perfect everytime, given that it didn't freeze up since it was windows. Now that I try the same thing in linux it gives me an error message, I learned something about turning off RockRidge options in x-cd roast, but I don't see any rockridge options anywhere. I don't care how I burn the cd, either from the command line or in an X-program just as long as it works. If someone can tell me exactly how to do this PLEASE DO! thanks Quincy

Have you tried K3b? Simply select File ==> New Project ==> New Data CD Project, then drag a drop all of your MP3 files into the bottom pane and click the Burn icon.

I'll be honest I forgot about K3b, and this is what I did- took your advice and then changed the file systems options from the file systems tab after clicking burn. I unchecked the rockridge and checked joliet. and somehow this made it work when previous atempts wouldn't with default options and then with defaults plus a checked joliet box, so now I know...thanks bro.
