Dell Desktop...Windows XP...Roxio CD Software.
I have tried several brands of blank media. I burn music CD's and the audio comes out all static-y and sometimes audio drops-out. I have tried the disc on several different players and DVD drives etc...Some players play discs better than others. I have tried rebooting and restarting. I have used a CD-ROM drive CD cleaner disc. Nothing helps. I am NOT technically savvy but if I have to install another "burner", I will. I use my burner quite a lot.
Is my CD-ROM/CD-R drive finally going south? It's been 3 years. If I have to buy a new drive (internal). How much do I have to spend?? Do all CD-ROM/CD-R's fit in all Dells?? The one I have now is GCE-8481B.
