burning cds - 3rd or 4th tracks start to crackle

  spot the braincell 18:08 28 Oct 2004

for a while I was able to merrily burn cds on our artec cd-r. Now, however it burns ok, but when it comes to playback the first few tracks are ok but after that all ensuing tracks have a horrible crackle all over them.
Any clues chaps, as I said it has been ok up until recently. I've tried different cds, but no change. I'm running win98.

screensavers spring to mind on this, or some other service that starts running after about ten mins.

if you use a screen saver, disable it while you burn a cd and see if that helps, also see if you have FastFind in your startup menu, if you do, remove it from the startup menu to stop it loading at start up.

You can always put it back in later if it makes no difference (but when i was on win98 i always removed it and left it out, system seemed to run slow when it was left in) personal preference folks.

hope this helps a little
