Try this. Drop the recording rate to 2X and retest. If it works you have an aging drive or so-so media.
i burn alot of music cds and for the most part i have no problems but for some reason lately when i burn a cd the first 10 or 11 songs on the cd are fine but the songs after that seem to crack and skip or not come out at all. when i play the songs on my comp. from the files they sound great but when i play them in my cd player in the car the last few songs on the cd skip or break up, like i said is usually the 10th or 11th song and all after that i made a cd that contained 17 songs and only the first 10 came out good. am i putting to many songs on one cd? or is it the quality of the cds? they paly great on my comp. thank you
