GSA-4167B first track on music cd's always unreadable

vbimport

#1

Hi I need some help with my GSA-4167B, whenever I burn a music cd the 1st track is always unreadable and the cd won’t play until I skip to the next track, although if I skip to track 2 then rewind through track 1 it is playable it just doesn’t seem to find the start. Now when I burn music I have to put a tiny blank track at the beginning of each cd.

I have tried several different brands of blank disc and all have the same result. This is the nero logfile if anyone can help me I’ll be grateful,

Thanks.

Hi and welcome!

Upgrade your firmware. DL13 resolved some issues with audio CDs.

Michael

You could also try using Burrrn (www.burrrn.net) as that is often a better bet than Nero for Audio CDs.


#4

I concur. The problems mentioned with the first track of an audio disc not being playable are the very symptoms DL13 was released to fix (among other things). Typically, track 2 onwards will play if you skip track 1.

This was a fairly commonly asked question on this forum some time back.


#5

It worked a treat-problem solved! thanks a lot guys I appreciate your help.
