It might read CD-R/RW just fine if burned as regular CD format, but my 04 LE Bose does not read MP3s. Take a look at the format you are burning to the media.

You may be burning mp3 and wav but I gaurantee your software is converting it to audio CD format. Our HU's do not play mp3.

How many songs are you putting on a CD? I bet it is less than 15, if you are burning mp3's on the disk then you should be able to put 100-150 songs on one disk.

I haven't tried to play MP3's as that was one of my questions when puchasing the LE, I was told they do not play them. Also, for the 2006 it clearly states that one of the upgrades is the system will now play MP3's. Just going off what I have been told and read. But again I have not personally tried to play them.

hullio, there is a big difference between burning a disc in mp3 format and burning it in audio format on a blank cd-r/cd-rw. the major difference is that you can fit 8 to 9 FULL ALBUMS in mp3 format and only about 15-20 SONGS in audio format. so i think that was his question. answer is no for the 04-05 models. 06 models, i've heard yes.

Correct. MP3 is a different and inferior quality recording. They compact the information which in turn makes the music less dynamic. On a good system, you can easily hear the difference. With our BOSE, it isn't as noticable. I play an IPod on mine, which is MP3 and it doesn't sound to bad, but manufacturer burned disks are definitely better. :eek:

2004 Armada LE 4x4 - Still runs like new!

I have a 2004 Armada LE with Bose and 6 disc changer but it will not play MP3 CDs. I wonder if I can swap out my original 2004 radio/cd-changer for a 2006 unit to gain this MP3 playing capability (?) While looks may be deceiving the units do appear to be identical and in every way. One would think that the "MP3 feature" is implemented internally and should not be effected by anything outside of the radio itself. Does anyone have any experience with this?

UPDATE: It always bothered me that my 6 disc player in my 2004 Armada with Bose, Nav, etc. would not play MP3 CDs. I bought a 2006 CD player on Ebay for $84 and it arrived earlier today. I swapped it out with my original one (it took 5 minutes) and now I have MP3 capabilities! I know this may still seem old-school by today's standards but as I mentioned a couple of posts ago it is virtually impossible to upgrade the head unit in my "fancy" LE version of the Armada due to the car-computer, nav screen, climate control, etc. and still retain all of this stuff on the nav monitor. This was an acceptable compromise. I have also added the Naviks unit for backup camera viewing on the nav monitor and mirroring of my Android phone.
