DVD burner or Sound Card ?

by bugbug29 / January 10, 2010 5:27 AM PST

Windows XP Professional , 2GB Ram , IE 7

Just came back from Future Shop , I was going to buy a DVD burner for my computer .
The problem with the one I have is when making audio cd's I will get maybe 4 songs that are good , then the next one sounds like bubbling water with the music in the background , this will happen on every 4 or 5 tunes .
At Future Shop I was told that it could be the sound card , my question , is this possible ?
Just don't sound right to me , but I know that strange things take place with computers .

Audio issues
by Phil Crase / January 10, 2010 11:58 PM PST

Does the sound work on playback with an audio CD? If so that is not likely the issue. Chances are it is the drive since you only have the issue on disks that you are attempting to burn.

If I am a betting man,

I wouldn't bet on the video card (but like you say, strange thing can happen)...but I still won't bet on it.

It's the drive

It's the drive. The sound card has nothing to do with this. The only way I'd even consider the sound card, is if the discs played fine in other players but not your computer, and even then I'd STILL be inclined to think it was the drive.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
