Hey. I'm 16 and my first car is a 1998 S70 T5. My baby is black, with tan leather/suede. She's got 236 horsepower (hell of an increase compared to the base model) 9 spker SC901 Sound system with dolby pro logic surround sound and RDS, seat heaters, moonroof, fog lights (rear and front) trip comp, power drivers and passenger seats with driver's memory, auto dual zone climate control, spoiler, and the list goes on. Lol. I hope to make a few modifications when I'm able to. I don't see that coming any time soon but hopefully not too far from now. I want to begin by getting my windows tinted, makin her black body more sinister with more reflection from the windows. Anybody happen to know a brand of CDR that the CD player will play right off the bat? because mine seems to have trouble with those. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
Btw, any cute girls on here? lol

Damn, I wish I got a car that nice when I was 16. :-(
But, as far as CD-R's go, any and all of them will work if you close out the burn. For CD-RW's, it's a different story. I don't know the S70 CD players, but I doubt that any RW's will work.

Close out the burn? What do you mean by that? Like finish it? I use Windows Media Player 9 for my burning needs. It's interesting because only certain types of CD-Rs will work with my CD player. I've only tried up to three types and only one type worked (Memorex CD-R 700MB 48x) Basically no others have worked. Normal CDs of course work just fine and with no trouble. Even the Memorex CDRs would give some trouble, but it'd read them in the end. As for CDRWs, I knew even before I tried that they wouldn't work. I know that many Sony headunits and other replaceable type radio systems support RW playback but most stock sound systems such as the SC901 (mine) could not be relied upon to support that type of a CD. I even went so far as to ask volvo their opinion on the matter when my car was in for some minor engine work. They were not all that knowledgeable nor helpful on the matter, saying things like "yeah these cars don't do too well with CD-Rs." It's amazing how little influence you have when you're a teenager. lol. Well thanks for your help, keep that volvo up among competitors ;)
