Issue burning Audio CD's

by XBojenglzx / December 14, 2008 8:44 AM PST

I've been trying to burn some audio CD's lately, and they have come our horribly. The first 3-5 songs are always fine, then all the remaining songs are very choppy, with lots of static. Has anyone heard of this happening before? Any suggestions on how to fix it?

Window XP Home
Current ITunes

1) Your burner is dying.

2) For whatever reason, the burner is suffering from buffer overruns when burning disks. 1) and 2) can be tested by using another known good burner; if another burner exhibits the same behavior, then the first burner's probably good, and a buffer overrun may be at fault. If the second burner records correctly, get a new burner.

3) You have a corrupted iTunes or Windows installation. Try reinstalling iTunes.

4) The burner's drivers are corrupted in some manner.

Also, you might try running iTunes' diagnostic routine. Click Help/Run diagnostics... and test the CD/DVD drive as well as network connectivity.

Also, clean the PC of all cookies, temporary files, etc. using Windows' Disk Cleanup routine.

In reply to: Just guesses:

1) This happens on both burners.

2) What do I do to remedy a burner overrun?

3) I will try an Itunes reinstall

4) How would I remedy a corrupted burner driver?

Ran an Itunes diagnostic, everything seems fine.

How do I do the Window's Disk Cleanup routine?

Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

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?
