CD burning trouble

By GoRockYerself
Nov 29, 2008
  1. I haven't burned too many cds with my current setup. The first few were fine, then a few months later I went to burn a cd and two tracks were fine, and the other seven or so were all staticky and skippy. I've tried different software, tried using better cds, and even took the cd burner from my old computer and installed it, and I still have the same trouble, so I know it is some setting on my pc, that I don't know about.
    Please help!

    GoRockYerself,
    Nice specs :cool: If XP is not updated to SP3 you might want to do this first...

    So are you still having having burning issues? What software are you using? Nero, Roxio?

    xp is updated.
    I'm still having the issues. I've tried Nero, Roxio, PowerISO, and just dragging songs onto the cd, and clicking on burn. I also have two different burners hooked up, and both of them have the problem. Also I tried buying "better" quality discs to no avail. So I have plenty of blanks to run through to try and fix this. :)

    Nowadays, the DVD and CD player-recorders are the most common frequent failures of a desktop computer.
    Time to get a new one. At prices that average $18 to $24, we should expect a few failed units, I suppose... but it is forever irritating...

    Except that the old one, from my old computer works in my old computer just fine, until I put it in my newer tower. It now does the same as the new one. So it is some sort of system problem. If I buy another one it will do the same, and put it in it will do the same..

    There is a small possibility that the problem could be the the Audio driver. No guarantee on that idea though.

    You might try replacing the IDE cable (!) or (?)

    Sorry Kimsland, I didn't see your original post. My specs should work now.
    I'll mess with the IDE cable, I think I have an extra...
