I burn a lot of audio cds. Just lately I have noticed that the cds that I burn play fine for a few days (several plays), then all of sudden, there’s static in the songs. It’s a progressive deterioration. I have tried 3 different brands of cds, Azul, Memorex, & Maxell. Same burner (Memorex DVD/CD Burner), same software (Nero 7.0).
Any ideas why? Is it the drive? The software? I have heard something about firmware(?).
