POISONING torrents with bad content is well known. This is done to frustrate those that might try to download copyrighted works.
The only think I know is I never use Windows Media Player to make an AudioCD. Today I use CDBURNERXP. (on XP, Vista and 7.)
This will not correct poisoned content.
When downloading an MP3 file and some of the tags are missing (certainly from Torrents) I burn the files to CD-RW or CD-R. On playback on the computer I find interfence noise (like a badly worn vinyl record) has been introduced to the file.
This didn't happen on XP. Tried different speeds of burning and whilst the noise level decreases at slower speeds it is still there.
I have tried burning on both my Desktop (W7) and laptop (vista) and i get the same result. The source files play perfectly to my ears.
My XP computer sadly now departed was perfect. Anyone have similar problems or have any idea what is causing this.
