Ok so I had posted a different topic about how my freshly burned cds were skipping in Pioneer CDJs. I was recommended to burn at a lower speed. So I burned a bunch of cds at 8x. They still skip. However, I have a bunch of other CDs, same make, that I had burned on a different computer that play fine. So, I have come to the conclusion that either I got a bad batch of CDs (which I doubt because I havent had problems with this type of cd before and it’s all I use) or that my drive is fscked/dirty. I just bought a lens cleaner, and will reburn a cd I know to be skipping tonight after cleaning the drive. If that one plays, I’m set. Otherwise I’ll need to get a new drive.
The drive is a Toshiba TS-A642A (i think, not at my computer now).
My question is, are Maxell Ritek cds known to have problems or is my particular drive known to have problems?
