I bought a new Pioneer DVR-215 SATA burner on the weekend. I went to try and play an Audio CD with it, but it sounds terrible. The audio is constantly 'broken', full of ticking as if the CD is very badly stratched, but still playable at the same time. It's kind of hard to explain, I might be able to replicate it if anyone wants me to.
I have updated the firmware to the latest version off the Pioneer website. As far as I know, there is no other drivers or software I need to install. The problem is present in Windows Media Player and iTunes. I'm about to see if it present on my Vista installation.
Is there anything I can do, or will I have to use another drive?
Edit: It works fine in Vista, so this is a software related problem with XP.
