Crackling noises etc on audio cd

I’m new to cd burning. And I don’t understand too much!! But I have used three burning ptogrammes (Realplayer, Adaptec and Gear, and often have cds which are not well burned. I am on XP professional, and I switch off all other programmes while recording. HELP!!!


Try to quit all programs before burning that may use the cpu. Try to use Nero, the best burning app in my opinion. Don’t do on-the-fly copies, create images and burn them.
