Hello little-endian, thanks for the reply.

No, not really; Take your pick;
It seems that some call it one thing and others call it another. Even some of the help files in the different software packages I have used call it one thing or another, so for now; what it is called is of little relevance as far as I'm concerned.

I thought of that and used a number of different software programs to rip the same problem files from the audio CDs they originated on and there was no difference, still got the errors.
Quote; "Quite laborious. Why don't you create an image file first - before recording?"
Yes; it could be seen as being quite laborious if one assumes that I am using large sized sound files for my tests. The sound files I am using are basically 50s and 60s songs, which when played are just under 2 minutes in length, so as mp3 and wav files they are quite small and take mere seconds to process. I'm also not worried about wearing out a CD-RW disk, I have plenty of them at my disposal.
As for the image file creation; that was one of the first things I did and strangely enough it worked fine, no problems doing that at all, until it came to actually burning the image, so I decided to skip the redundant parts of the test and concentrate on the actual burning process since that is where the problem occurs.
Quote; "Your post is pretty general. Maybe you could name the software, writer, etc. you use ...?"
You are correct, this is a pretty general problem, that many people, with all sorts of different software and hardware have talked to me about, so I saw no point in naming any particular software, writer, etc.
I have used a number of common CD burning software packages, from Roxio to Nero etc., a number of different CD burner models, (belonging to friends), different computers and the results were all exactly the same, unless I did them on a machine with the Windows 98 operating system and then there were no problems whatsoever.
I was just wondering if anyone else, outside of the people I know have had the same things happen and what they did about it.
Thanks for your reply.
