here’s my problem. my cd player has been giving me some headahces lately. whenever i rip tracks, there are random errors in the tracks such as a noise or static in the middle of a track. what is even more strange is that the errors aren’t at the same point and in the same tracks. i’ve been having this problem for the last month --ever since my computer re-created all the system files. i notice that my cd player is having problems reading data/audio cds. i hear it speed up a bit, stop, pause for 4-5 seconds are restart.
it is getting annoying as i can’t just rip tracks from a cd. i have to listen to each track to find if there are any errors. as you can guess, it’s a pain in the neck and time consuming.
i guess my question is – is my cd player on its last leg and that is what is causing the problem? or is it because my computer re-created all the original system files? also, the program i use influences the amount of errors. musicmatch gives more errors than nero, which gives more errors than EAC.
