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)

You may call them AUDIO all you like, but if, as you say, you are burning wav files to a cd, they are data cd's not audio. As already explained it is not uncommon that one of your hardware players is choking on them. Burn them as audio and they will play.

There is a huge amount of information on this available via search and likely within the wiki.

OP wasn't very clear in this thread, but this

suggests that he did in fact burn them as audio CDs.

My money is on CD-R incompatibility, as was suggested. Especially if the CD player is older.
Could be also that it's not CD-R incompatibility in general, but an issue of burning speed or something. So perhaps try with a lower speed or a different brand of CD-Rs.. maybe even with different burning software (although I've never had problems with CDburnerXP).
