It was probably burned as a data disk rather than a music disk. Try burning the CD at a lower speed.

An audio CD is the kind you buy in the store. Some store-bought albums have extra content, but you buy it because it plays the music you want to hear through your CD player of choice--in your car, in your boombox, etc. An audio CD conforms to certain specifications so that CD players from as long ago as the 1980s will be able to play them.An MP3 CD is a CD burned as data. Unless you have a CD player that specifically boasts about its ability to play MP3 CDs, an MP3 CD will not play in your car, in your boombox, etc.
