Clicks between tracks while DAO

Will someone PLEASE help?

I’m getting muted “clicks” at the transitions between tracks when copying live audio CD’s with Easy CD Creator 5. I’ve tried 2 different computers (and 2 brands of burners) and still have the same problem.

I’m recording DAO (from image files recorded to my hard drive using ECDC5) )and even tried burning as slow as 1x speed, but the problem still persists.

I’ve read that a wave stripping program may help solve this, but I haven’t a clue what to use, or how to use it. All my files on my hard drive are “.cif” files anyway, so a wave editor doesn’t recognize them.

Roxio has been anything BUT helpful on this (I spent $75 upgrading from 4.0 to 5.0 in an effort to solve this problem, and hours with them on the phone and they haven’t offered a single solution that works. I’m still creating coasters!)

Should I just abandon Easy CD Creator and try Nero and/or Exact Audio Copy (assuming either of these will eliminate the “clicks”)?

If anyone has any experience with this, or can give me some insight, I’d be most appreciative. I’m not very computer-literate and I’m at my wit’s end here.

By the way, I’ve tried 2 different burners on 2 different computers and am experiencing the identical problem (using Easy CD Creator). On my main computer I’m using an Iomega ZIPCD3840INT burner with Windows 98SE. On my other, WIN98SE with an LG burner (which is supported by ECDC5).

Also, can someone inform me whether these “clicks” are added during the EXTRACTION process, or during the BURNING process? It would at least help to point me in the “write” direction (sorry I couldn’t resist the bad pun).

Thanks for any help you can give. I’m getting desperate (and a bit looney)!


Try this, for you cd creation it even comes with a wave editor, I use it to put all my old albums on cd, and it does 1 helluva job…

I advise you to rip the whole live set/cd with EAC incl a cue file(rip it to one big .wav and the cue file will be having the toc of the tracks in it so when you brun it there will be no gaps but still have the orginal track index and the music will flows over like on the original cd) and then brun it with nero/cdrwin/fireburner or another burning program that supports cue files and i bet you will make a good copy.

Better drop easy cd creator its crap its nice when you just starts with burning but nero is much much better to continue with.
