Honda Civic & CD-R Trouble

Hi everyone : ) My 2002 honda civic-lx cd player is suddenly having trouble playing some cd-r’s. In the past I have used generic BASF’s 80 min (the white discs) and Fuji 80min (has a blue hue on data side) and have never had any problems what so ever with these or any others tried.

Now it seems as if it’s having some trouble playing a few tracks here and there on discs that have always played fine before…like it’s trying to access them forever or takes a little longer than normal to cue up a song. Also discs I’ve made very recently will play like the beginning half of tracks on cd but not the ones at the end and may take longer to cue.

Store bought music cd’s still work just fine.

Has anyone ever heard of anything like this?!?

Thank you all very much for taking the time & have a great day!

This happens to my HiFi every 2-3 years or so, hasnt happened to my car still though. It usually means you have to get the laser unit replaced. Sometimes you can get easily off by just cleaning it, but i dint think one can do this with his car cd player.
