That's an old enough player that it probably has a DVD-only optical pickup assembly. CD-RW can be read sometimes in such a player, only becuase the CD-RW is more tolerant to the DVD laser. (That's oversimplifying things a great deal.)

As for media, it's going to be hit and miss. You'll have to try them until you find one that works, or purchase a more modern player that can handle CD-R.

for more information.
