A few weeks ago I noticed that cds I was burning on my ext. drive would skip and crackle in my car. I thought that I had gotten a hold of cheap media because it was reading bought cd’s just fine. It was also reading cd’s I had burned before just fine. I bought a different brand (though still 700mb) and it still crackled/skipped.
SO…I tried burning the same cd (just over 70 mins) on my friend’s int. cdrw and the cd played fine in my car on the cds I just bought, but would still skip on cds I burned my on own ext. drive.
