problems with cd copying

  mikeyboy32 13:08 12 Mar 2005

I've tried to make exact copies of a couple of music cds using sonic record now which i got with my new pc running windows xp.
But when i play them back both in my pc or any other cd player the music is on there but theres also an annoying crackling/cd skipping sound on them which makes the cds unlistenable.Is there any way i can get rid of this? is it a problem with my setting or the actual cdr's im using?
theres nu problem with the playback of cds or dvds on the cd drive in my pc by the way.

I find Sonic the most non user-friendly software around.

Assuming you have 1 CD/DVD drive, use Media Player - just create a playlist [copying from the original CD] then use the "Burn" button...................should work OK.

If you have 2 drives then Media Player still does it for you.

Cheers for the info.this is the first time i've copied a cd so i just used the 1st thing i came across on my hard drive.i.e. sonic.
will give media player a go now and see what happens.Would it affect the sound of the copied cd's that much just by using media player as oppossed to sonic?

If your copying disc 2 disc burn them at a slower speed , i had a similar problem and tried this and it worked fine. Got a reply to my prob from pca and a s usual it worked .Good luck .
