Hi, new here as you may have notice.
I feel some sort of guilty for going to forums only when I need help, but I guess that's the part we play when we know little.
Anyway, I have a really funny problem with my brand new Sony Q30A - or LITE-ON 1635 if you like. For some reason it writes incompatible audio-CDs but only when the source are MP3 files. I know it sounds weird, but I think have tested this well, AFAIK. The empirical data is this, though: no matter what program I use - in this case, Nero 188.8.131.52, EAC, NTI - if the source is a previous backup in APE format with its own cue file, the result can be read in every stand-alone cd player. If, instead, I drag MP3 files to writing programs, the resultant CD is only read by PC and only a few stand-alone cd players.
So, question is, is there any difference in what is actually written, between writing from the APE/cue source and the MP3 collection? I didn't thougth there was but I just don't know.
Only one more thing. If I connect my old CD writer - from Panasonic - all and everything works fine and is readable. Also, Nero says LITE-ON 1635 can't write audio without pauses between tracks, is that true?
Thanks in advance and any other information you need, I'll be following closely any reply.
