CD Burning Issues

Everytime I try to burn a CD it will say it has completed. However, when I play the audio CD it will skip around track 3 or 4. Also, when I'm trying to burn a data CD it won't even complete itself. It just says that it won't work.

I have tried Verbatim, Memorex, Sony, and some nameless type of CD that's blank I borrowed from a friend.

Is it burner or... something else? Anyway I can fix this?

Try Nero Burning Rom or Windows XP has a built in burning program or uses Windows Media Player for audio :tazz:

I use this RecordNow thing that came with my computer or Windows Media Player. They've both always worked well.

I can't say that I do or have ever had the option to "verify a burn". In the past it simply says complete, I take the CD out, it works.

Well, now it says complete and doesn't work.

well with audio it doesnt matter if u use win media player or nero because they are the same media player just uses a nero plugin, from first impressions id say the possibility of a faulty burner should not be ruled out but u have check the quality of the media u r putting on and u are using the software provided with the cd burning device and also check that the cd burner is set as the master of the secondary channel as this can lead to some bizare things if no.
