Hi. Long time reader, first time poster. I recently bought a 25 pack spindle of Verbatim DataLifePlus CD-RW rated 16-24X speed, from CompUSA. I have a Plextor 708A, with latest firmware, 1.04. I used Nero 184.108.40.206. to burn an audio CD. The CD-RW is made by Mitsubishi. Here's the problem:
When I finished burning, the first 4 tracks out of 18 or so were horribly distorted. It was skipping very rapidly. The rest were fine. When I looked on the CD-RW, there was a lighter shade on the inner first half of the CD, compared to the rest of the burned CD. This coincided with the bad tracks. I tried to burn the exact same compilation on a Memorex 10X CD-RW, made by crappy CMC, and it plays perfectly, on my PC and stereo. The album is 70 minutes long. Any ideas on how I can make it work?
