LG CD-RW CED-8080B burner problem

Whenever I try to make a copy of a CD it either fails while writing or it goes through but when I go to listen to the CD there are a bunch of skips and stuff.
Whenever I try to make a compilation CD from other CDs it fails.

I can make audio CDs from MP3s ok but there is sometimes an occasional skip. I can also still make video CDs from mpegs alright.

The burner is a LG CD-RW CED-8080B
I’ve tried two different software programs. - Adaptec 4.0 (i think) and now I have Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6

Does anyone have an idea what the problem is?
