View Full Version : More burner problems

02-25-2006, 01:13 AM
I think my burner is really finicky about blank CDs...I bought some Memorex CD-RWs to use and I'll be damned if my old problem didn't resurface...towards the end of a CD, I start getting this noise - tsss tsss tsss tsss in steady, quick bursts, and get this; its more evident in certain players than it is in others.


I don't think its my ripping program (EAC) because I get no noise when I playback the files on my computer. I don't think its a compatibilty issue with another program, but I've had that happen before on another computer. The only thing I've downloaded recently was Napster.

Is there some kind of copy protection going on here?

:( this sucks

Don't know about any copy protection, but my experience with CD-RW playback in audio players has been very mixed. Automotive players seem to be the most picky. I gave up on CD-RW's and use only CD-R's (Memorex and Sony).

Get a stereo component cd maker and you won't have those issues.

How old is your DVD burner? Might be time for it to go. I remember mine years ago doing the same thing. New burner fixed it...luckily now they are what...$20?
