I don't even think CD-R'* were heard of in 95.
Basically, CD'* you buy at the store are Red Book, and CD-R'* are Orange(?? I believe) book. It'* the standard they are made on. It'* a bunch of things but I think it comes down to the material in the CD'*
In a standard CD the information is cut into the metal film layer in "on" and "off" (1 and 0), in a CD-R the plastic layer inside is changed color to "on" and "off" because of this, the material is less reflective, plus it'* thicker. The stock CD player'* laser probably isn't Strong/Sensative enough for the CD-R'*.
So the only solutions are. Buy silver bottom CD-R'* that may help. Or, ya gotta change the head unit. In my research, I have found a unit which will interface the stock steering wheel controls with a head unit which has the ability to use a remote. So you won't loose any functions, the only thing you may loose is the dimmer controls (which depends on the head unit you buy, i believe Pioneer'* use it.) I know my Clarion doesn't :( . I'm planning on updating my radio soon.
