I'd try the analogue playback noted at http://www.nwlink.com/~zachd/pss/pss.html and try it in WINAMP too.
I have a TDK burner less than a year old. It burns CDs fine, but when I try to play back with this drive the music comes out jittery (hope you know what I mean). I am wondering if I should bother with tech support and just purchase a new DVD burner. Any idea why the drive may be doing this? Would new firmware help? I really need some advice here before I purchase something new. Thanks ahead of time for the assistance. chaplndave
