Car mp3 player skips entire songs

Hi all, I am having a problem where my MP3 player in my car (Alpine CDA-7995) sometimes skips entire songs if they’re MP3’s. It seems like it’s totally random, I can’t seem to correlate it with anything. The tracks are on the disc, I can listen to them on my PC, the bitrate is the same as the rest of my MP3’s (192 kb/s).

My hunch is that it’s software related. I use Windows Media Player 10 to rip from CD as MP3, and I have been burning to CD using Sonic RecordNow DX. I can burn them as MP3’s or as data files, but I always do the data files as this allows me to use folders and that’s the only way the Alpine reads the tags correctly. I am burning at mid speed (don’t exactly know what that is, that’s all it tells me). Burner is a LiteOn LDW-411S hacked to 811S, CD-R’s are Fujifilm 700MB 80 min. That’s all they say on them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I’m sure other people have run into this problem. Thanks in advance.
