Hello- Just ran into a problem with audio distortion while ripping cds to my windows media library. Its brand new, but im wondering if my burning 70 discs to my library has somehow affected the performance. Im wondering what the shelve life is on these things before they start acting screwy. It still burns cds though, just cant listen to music while its doing so. This didn't start happening until 5 to 10 cd's ago. Please help if you have info.
