MP3 noise when burning MP3s in Windows7 and Vista

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.

One cause is called POISONING.

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.

Thank you. How is that done?

Keep in mind the source downloaded file plays well on all players. It's only when I burn and rip. Also, the distortion is on every track I have downloaded from Torrents, even those I downloaded using XP which when burning on XP were clean. I think this is a problem at my end, rather than poisoned torrents.

I have just downloaded Tag Tuner to try and put in tagging information. Not quite worked out how to get the info into the original file yet. If I can master this, I won't need to burn & rip.

"Thank you. How is that done?"

What? Poisoning, making AudioCDs with other tools? Let me write that I will not write about poisoned content since I agree they must protect their content.

As to making AudioCDs there are fine alternatives. Try a few.
