I noticed this problem some time ago, but up until now have decided to ignore it.
The main program I use for burning CD’s is Nero 6 Ultra and for DVD’s I use DVD Shrink along with ImgBurn. It’s rare that I’ll decide to make a copy of an audio CD, for a friend or whatever, but I noticed some time I ago that whenever I did try doing this the disc would come out with each track being nothing but a maddening, repetitive TICKING sound. The same would happen whenever I would try and copy the tracks from the disc to my hard drive so I figured it was a problem with Nero and decided to download CDex. That ended up working fine for a while, but now (after installing my DVD burning stuff and VLC media player) whenever I try to even open CDex I get the “CDEx has encountered a problem and needs to close” message and I’m forced to close it. Gah! I tried uninstalling and reinstalling CDex altogether, but the problem still remains. Nero in the meantime is still giving me nothing but MP3’s of that same annoying clicking sound. I should note that I can BURN audio CD’s just fine, I just can’t save tracks from them on to my hard drive. What gives? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
