Hi, I'm new here, this was recommended by someone at Overclockers.com forums. I have a strange problem, maybe you have seen it before...
I just picked up a new micro advantage 52X32X52 CDRW drive, and I've had some problems. I burn everything fine, but when I go to play the CDs in my car, they start skipping. Here are some of the odd observations though:
I'm using the same spindle of CDs that I used to use, and the old CDs that I burned before never skipped
It seems like the later into the CD I get, the more it skips. The first song does not ever skip, but by track 12 it is all messed up
The skip is caused by my car CD player not reading it properly, not because of a burning error. I know that because I can rewind and it will play over the part that just skipped error free
This is very odd to me, here are some of my ideas, tell me if I'm right or stupid:
The CDs I'm using might not be rated to 52X. In fact, I'm sure they are only 32x or so
I'm using Roxio instead of Nero
It could just be this new CDRW drive
Any of this seem correct? I'm going to try and burn one at maybe 24x and see how it does. Ever have this problem anyone? I've heard of burning errors, but never an error that is sometimes there, somtimes not, even on the same CD!!! Why would the outside of the disc be harder to read? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
