1. Make sure you're using "Create New Audio CD" in K3B ( assuming that's what you're using you never said ) You may need to install libk3b2-mp3 to be able to transcode mp3's to audio cd format.

2. CR-RW's while usable don't tend to work very well in cd players. I use them in my cd player in my car, but I sometimes have to put the cd in multiple ( up to say 10 or so at worst ) times to get it to finally read. The laser eyes in cd playback equipment is probably not nearly as good as the ones in computer equipment.
