Burning a CD

My Mac version is 10.13.6 and Audacity 2.1.2. I have created an Audacity file from a reel to reel tape. I have tried exporting it as an aiff file but when I burn the CD it will not play on a CD player. What am I missing or doing wrong? Thanks for you help in advance.

How are you burning the CD? If you just drag and drop the AIF file onto the blank CD and tell the Finder to burn the CD, it will make a data CD.

Try dragging the file into iTunes and burning the CD from there.
