Any help or advice gratefully recieved.
I've got a problem with my MSI MS-8348 CD RW.
It copies ok and plays back fine until it gets to towards the last couple of tracks on the CDR and then the audio disappears into static.
I've tried CD-Rs from different manufacturers but I am still getting loud crackling and static on several songs on these CDs after they are burned.
I've also tried using Nero and the latest versions of Windows Media player and Realplayer with the same result.
Think my drive is equivalent to MSI CR48-A as MSI CR48-A2 must have come out after I purchased the computer in 2002 ...
