I have tried burning to wav, wma and my ONKYO 6 disc changer wont play the WAV at all even though my sony blu ray will.

I have cdburnerxp which can burn straight to flac; would this be the best bet for cd rs to play on cd player?

I mean albums already stored as flac of course(not mp3 to flac)

A bit hard to tell what you are actually doing, so this is merely a guess: You are burning a data CD with files (WAV, WMA and now suggested, FLAC). Right?
An audio CD is something different. It is not such a kind of file, in fact not even such a kind of file system. The Onkyo wants an audio CD, not a data CD with audio in the data. Big difference.

Some players can read data CDs though (maybe all BluRay players can, I don't know) and they may or may not be equipped with the codec in question.

Hi i mean strictly AUDIO albums.

I burned zeppelins Hoth to WAV from cd burnerxp; it plays on my blu ray but the Onkyo cd player wont play it at all.
