Reduce your burn speed. That helps.

You would better convert them to Wave files

Converting to Wav files will make no difference to your end result if you are using NERO. The problem is more likely to be that either your burn speed is too high or you’re using poor/cheap cd's.

First of all make sure your using CDR's not CDRW'S.

Have you tried the CD's on another CD player, if so do they play OK?

I have a fairly expensive system (over £1,500) but it just doesn't like CDR's. It will play freshly burnt ones but after a week or so they jump and skip tracks.
