Alright. I dont know what kind of burner I have. I just know it's the one that came in my computer when I bought it. I have a laptop. It has Windows XP, and I've had it for almost 4 years now. When burning CDs, I've never had a problem with the playback. Whatever I burn usually plays well. Lately though, I've been having some issues.
In my car CD player, I can put a burned CD in the player, and it will either not read it, or I have to take it out and insert it back in a few times before it finally works. At first, I was thinking it was just the CDs, but now it's all my burned CDs, more so the newer ones than the older ones. Then I thought it was the car, but...I dunno.
If I put a CD in my mom's car, it plays fine to begin with, then, by about track 5, it starts to sound like there is static on my CD. This past weekend I played a burned CD of my friend's, and it played fine. But when I put mine in, static started coming from it.
I have some small issues in the home CD player...a little skipping, but other than that, it isnt too bad. Mainly in my car and my mom's car. I did put a CD in our new DVD/CD player that we got for Christmas, and I'm pretty sure it played OK.
I dont know if it's the CDs, my computer....who knows! I love music and burning CDs (legally of course ) but I dont want to burn another CD and not know whether it's going to play or not.
Do burners go out with time? Is it the program I'm using? I use iTunes to burn my CDs, and occasionally Windows Media Player. Any help would be awesome! Thanks so much! -Brittany
