    Might as well start with system specs....

    Self built..

    Asus A7N8X Deluxe (nforce2)
    AMD Barton 2500+ OC'ed to 2.1GHz (been stable for over a year - cooled by thermaltake volcano)
    1GB PC DDR 3200 dual channel (2 x 512)
    80 GB 7200 RPM / 200 GB 7200 RPM
    SONY DVD+-RW 16x (40x CDR)
    Windows Vista Business with latest updates
    NERO 7.10.1.2

    So a few months back, same system on an a year old XP install, CDs I burned had random static/distortion in them. Would be random songs, sometimes some songs on the CDs were perfect, others unplayable, sometimes the CD player (usually one of my vehicles) would not recognize the CD or a particular track. It's not the CD player, I've eliminated this.

    I needed to reformat anyways, so I put Vista on. (Had a free copy from work, figured I'd try it) Problem went away.... and now it seems to be back :dunno:

    My initial thought was to turn down write speed... so instead of burning at 40x, I burned at 8x. CD's still have distortion :rant2:

    It could be a million different things so I thought I'd ask here first in case someone has already run into this. I'm burning with Power Burn ON (my understanding its a type of buffer under run) and a lower write speed doesnt help... I've had success with the same brand of CD-R's (HP) that I'm now having the problem with again (same package of them)

    anybody? thanks in advance :noes:

    one thing you didn't check on is the cd burner itself

    try burning the music with windows media player or itunes. Both of which will convert your mp3's to a cda file that will play in a normal cd player.

    nope, doesnt solve the problem.

    I tried burning on my laptop and my pc.

    There is still that static sound on some of the songs....i thought it was my cd player in the car...but interesting to know someone else has the same problem.

    I went to Honda and they told me the wiring behind the actual player might not be plugged in all the way :dunno:

    Jay, i am thinking it might be the player itself in the car not reading the cds correctly. I bought one of those cd cleaning kits that you pour some liquid on it and put it in the player..i havent tried it yet though...maybe the reading laser is dirty inside?

    I've already eliminated the CD player... I've tried 4 different cars, some have stock CD players, some have Pioneer head units in them.. same issue. Previously burned CD's play fine...

    :dunno:

    you could just have gotten a bad batch of discs. I'd try a different brand and see if that works.
    Have you eliminated the initial songs as the source of the static?

    I already addressed the CD's and the CD player :o :hsd:

    But like what someone just said, could be a few bad ones in the spindle :dunno: Not likely if you're having the same problem, but I'll give it a shot
