Certain CDs playing static/not ripping on my PC

Hi guys,

I was wondering if any of you guys could help me out here.
I’ve got a TSSTcorp SH-S223B cd/dvd drive, and ive been ripping some CDs to FLAC using EAC.
However EAC is having a problem ripping a few of them. The error correction bar lights up and it just dosn’t rip. The discs arn’t scratched, in fact they are in excellent condition.
I then tried to play the discs with Winamp & VLC, and there is a horrible distortion/static in the background of the music (but only when there is music. ie, during quiet sections, the static isn’t as bad).
So far this has happened with 8 out of 50 or so CDs, but i have no idea what the problem is.
It dosn’t seem to like Mastodon CDs if thats any help. I couldn’t play either of their 2 most recent albums at all. Don’t know about their first two.

The CDs play fine in my laptop so it must be something to do with the drive surely?

Anyone have any idea what could be the problem?

Cheers

Alex
