My 16X burner suddenly started skipping on playback and popping on the audio. I tried a commerical disk and a copied one, same problem. I also got popping on playing back a commercial CD. I put the CD into my CDRW drive and it played fine.
Would it need a cleaning? How do I clean a burner? (And how do I tell what kind it is, I threw away the box a long time ago.)
