Default Burning a CD for Peugeot 407 (and others?)

Just in case anyone is looking for help.
I have tried using Windows 10 options to burn a CD. It works but cannot be read in my 407.
SO ... I read the handbook!!!
It requires ISO 9660 level 1,2 or Joliet and as low a speed as possible (4x maximum)
Looked for a FREE burner application for windows and eventually found
CDBurnerXP (it works on Windows 10)
It has an option to select Joliet and when clicking burn it asks for a speed. Selecting other option allows you to pick 2x.
This I did and all works fine.
I am sure there are other burning software apps and I have no involvement in CDBurnerXP, it just works.
I had a directory with 18 subdirectories, each containing a number of file and the car read them all correctly (I make sure that in each subdirectory I prefix with a number to get in the correct sequence anyway)
Another tip. If you want to read audio books, you probably want to split a file into sections so you do not have to start the book from the beginning. Try MP3splt (note the spelling) It runs in DOS under windows and is VERY fast.
The following splits all files in subsubdirectory into sections whenever it finds a 1 second silence in the input file:
mp3splt -s -p min=1 c:\directory\subdirectory\subsubdirectory
(I did try a windows alternative and it was so slow to split files that I gave up)
I hope this may help some of you.

On the other hand, if you have an Apple Mac reasonably up to date it burns the Joliet by default. All you have to do is drag the relevant files to the CD when the icon appears on the desktop and then burn. No hassle. I often joke with people that if they are going to use a proper computer then it will be a Mac!

It appears that if your RD4 does not have the MP3 on the front, then it will only play normal audio CDs.
Gutted, as I have around 80Gb of music on MP3 discs, which I cannot play in my Pug.

Put them on an mp3 player, activate your axillary input, get a lead and mp3 through player. Simples. 😁😁😁😁😁

Default Different radios

My manual has three types 'PC Com' 'PC Nav' 'PC Sound'
The last one looks like some photos on the internet of RD4.
The photo in the manual does not have MP3 on the facia.
All three state that they play MP3 files

BUT

I have used MP3 disks that play fine elsewhere and they are not recognised in my 'PC Nav'
As soon as I used burning software at 2x all was fine.
In my opinion I would not give up but try my original post. It doesn't cost much if you waste one CD. Make sure it is Joliet and burn at 2x.
I used CD-R
