I purchased a cassette to cd converter. The cd's work in my truck and on the TV DVD player, but will not work on my older portable CD player. I used the MP3 format. What format did the older players use?

I had a problem like this a long time ago. The older CD players are not capable at playing at higher speeds, so make sure you burn your CD at a lower speed. For instance in order for me to get it to play in my old CD device I had to burn my CD at a super low 4x speed, and that did the trick for me. Maybe give that a shot and see if that works for you :)

Also most CD players cannot play in the MP3 format (unless they are a MP3 player too), usually when you burn the CD it converts it to the proper format that CD players can play.

if your really having burning issues i would take it down to 1x just to make sure.

also older portable players are like the old stero's, they just don't like MP3 which is why that whole revolution of MP3 head decks where popular way back in the day.

Nero mite be able to do this as of many other software, convert to AC3 i think not 100% but that basic audio file for cd music.

MP3 was the next level which comes very standard these days but older devices need a basic format.

If you're using nero, use the "burn audio cd" option. You will have only a few tracks on your cd...around 20, but it will work.

For an easy way burn them with iTunes.

File > Burn Playlist to Disc > Disc Format: Audio CD

I've added a couple of screenshots below its iTunes for Mac but I am sure Windows has similar if you are using that.
