Why won't the cd player in my car "read" cd's that I'm burning on my new I-Mac?

I do a lot of driving, and typically burn podcasts onto cd's and listen when I drive.
When I burn a CD on my new IMAC, it doesn't play on my car's CD player. The car cd player doesn't reject (eject) the cd, it responds like it's reading and playing the disc, but there's no sound.
The CDs do play on a cd player in the house, but not in the car. I called Apple support, they had me check system preferences to confirm that it's set to burn an audio CD (as opposed to an mp3), and it is. They had no other suggestions.
The auto CD player does seem to work fine in all other regards. I just flipped platforms, and continually burned discs on my Dell, which continue to play just fine in the car. Seems like I can listen to any disc, as long as it wasn't burned on my new Mac!
Any thoughts or suggestions?
