Is it possible that CD burners require some maintenance or has mine developed a problem. Recently when I've burned music to CD I've noticed that some of my cd players either can't play it or when it does it's very distorted. These players previously played these cd's with no problem.
Could you please tell us what burning software you are using as you did not mention it in your original thread. The prolblem with the cd's is possible the make of disk you are using, i had the roughly same problem with my burner and it turned out the be make of disk. But it could also the the burning software, have you tried to reinstall the burning software to see if that has any effect. Other than that there could be a problem with the actual cd burner itself.
Not wishing to put any downers on this but I had a similar problem with my burner and it got worse. After a while my PC would often not boot properly and explorer would not "remember" its view settings. I re-formatted my HD, re-installed all software/drivers and still the problem persisted. I found that my back-up data CD's would also not burn properly. My CD burner then started to eject a disks whilst they were still spinning and the disks would be really hot. NERO would also report power calibration errors. In the end I bought another burner (LITEON) at about £44.00. All my burning problems and explorer errors went away as soon as the new burner was installed.
I'm not suggesting that you should buy a new burner at this stage but just keep an eye on other seemingly unrelated errors - Your burner could be the culprit!
home cd players may not play certain brands of cdr disc or those recorded as mp3`s,they are also a lot slower than the cd drive in your computer.if your home player supports mp3`s those recordings burnt at a lower speed and on quality discs will give your home cd player an easier time and cause less playback errors.
I've tried both Nero 5.5 and the copying option in Windows Media Player 9. I've only noticed this problem since I've upgraded to XP. The burner is an MSI ms-8348. I've tried using Philips CD-R's, SONY CD-R's and Samsung CD-RW's but with no change.
