Thanks for replying. I don't really know if it's the media, don't think so at least. I tried three different types. One was sony cdr 700mb capable of burning at 48 speed, another was some staples media, and the third was tdk. Same with all of them. When it actually gets past the lead in part, it burns normally, yet there are errors on the cds. I don't know what's wrong with it. Thanks for your help.
