Problems playing burnt audio cds


When I try to burn plain audio CDs they burn fine using Nero but when played in a CD player they play as though the cd is scratched and the audio skips.

I remember when using Nero and I would burn using Disc At Once/96 method it seems the version of Nero I am using doesn’t have or support that method.

I have tried updating the firmware on the optical drive which makes no difference.
I have updated Mainboard Bios and drivers
I have tried many different media brands
Tried from a fresh install and even tried burning from different hard drives.

Can anyone help???

Welcome to the forum.

The best app I know for burning Audio CDs is Burrrn ( , it’s free & far better than Nero.

Burn at 16x on to quality CD-R media like Verbatim & you should be fine.
