Hi - having problems with burning audio cd’s. I get a mass of digital pops all over the music. Not good.
Heres what I’ve tried - all failed
-Different burning software
-Tested Burner on another system - works fine
-installed latest 4in1 drivers
-turned DMA off
-Different burner firmware
-reinstall windows, bring back on with basic system, nothing extra. (!!)
-swap ide cables
Probably a few other things that I cant recall now lol…
Anyways heres my system specs
Asus A7V600 mobo (KT600)
Seagate 120 GB HDD and Liteon 411s DVD burner on IDE 0
Seagate 120 GB on IDE 1
512 MB RAM
ASUS A280 GEforce4-4200 Vid Card
Leadtek 2000 expert TV tuner
SB Live Value sound card
Thats bout it…
Little more background info - This all worked fine for several months after installation of the burner. About 3 months ago I put a new board in my PC (the missus had a fried Mobo, so I got the new one and gave her my old one!). Since then I havent burnt many CD’s - so hadnt noticed the problem. I’ve burned a few DVDs and they seem OK - although they are a little more prone to doing strange things, like pausing or blocking up occasionally.
So I think the problems something to do with the newer mobo not getting along with the dvd burner. I just need some more ideas of what else I can try. I’m outta ideas, both sensible and stupid
Thanks in advance!!
