MP3 CD player can't read MP3 CD's burned in linux

I bought a rather cheap MP3 CD player and its not reading MP3 CDs burned in linux. It will read them if burned in windows with Rioxo ?sp. Also, the CDs appear alright when burned in linux as I can open them in both linux and windows and open the mp3s stored on them. In linux i tried both X-CD Roast and Nautilus CD burning running under Mandrake 9.2. Anyone have any ideas to help me get this working?

Since you're using X-programs it's hard for me
to figure out which options you were using. What
can go wrong is basically that you have Rockridge,
but not Joliet extensions, or that the filenames are
in lowercase, and the Player can't handle those.

Try using mkisofs & cdrecord from the command-line,
it's not that hard :}

What can I say, I like my mouse. Anyway, I turned off some Rock Ridge options and it seems to work in X-CD Roast, thanks
