What's your music in right now? iTunes has File > Burn Playlist to Disc (you must be in a playlist for that to show up).

I haven't done it on Windows in more than ten years; at the time my advice would've been "use Nero" but things change a lot in a decade!

Most burning applications support audio cd. On windows I used to use CDBurnerXP but anything will do.

I got an error on the car radio when trying to play a CD burn in WMP. The radio has MP3 on it so suppose it can take them.

So just burn a disk with mp3's on it, windows does this with no extra software. Just send or drag/drop files to the CD, then right click write.

Create an Audio CD from Media Player or iTunes. Use a CD-R, not CD-RW. Burn a single session and close disc.

Oh that must be before my time. Haven't you heard? Mini Disks are where it's at now.

Have you considered something like Endeavour EN200 MP3 Transmitter?
I have an old car stereo that just has a tape desk but I got an EN200 when they were on special and am very happy with it.
