I have been tearing my hair out for several months now with an audio cd burning problem I have. I originally posted the problem on this site and thought I had solved it by using 'Burnatonce', and setting the option to burn using ASPI rather than SPTI (I use XP Pro SP2). Now that solution has turned into a big pile of...well you know what!
My problem is this...when burning audio cd's I get a static-like crackle starting on the first track and getting gradually worse until the last few tracks are unplayable. These are the things I have tried:
Reinstall ASPI layer using FroggyASPI, Adaptec 4.60, 4.70 and 4.71 ASPI, and finally ForceASPI...No Luck!
Tried several different burning programs, such as Nero 6, Nero 7, Burnatonce and Feurio...No Luck!
Tried different media, from cheap and nasty to specialist audio cd-r's...No Luck!
Freed up plenty of HDD space (inexcess of 15Gb)...No Luck!
Defragged the HDD...No Luck!
Then this morning I discovered something...I get a perfect burn using Burnatonce (using SPTI)...BUT, only after a fresh reboot. If I try to burn more than one disk then the second one has the crackle all through it. Now, if I reboot and burn again it works perfectly.
Pleeeeaaaasssseeee, does anyone have an opinion on this...any idea would be appreciated?
