Question about Ricoh (RW7083A) CD-RW Burner

Burned CDs don't play properly

When I play my burned CD's in a regular CD player, they "pop" and "hiss". This is barely noticeable for the first couple of songs, but gets progressively worse. By song ten or eleven it's really bad. I've tried lowering my burning speed. I also applied error correction when ripping, thinking maybe this was the problem, but nothing has worked. Is this a software problem, or could it perhaps be something mechanical going in inside the drive?

Re: Burned CDs don't play properly

It sounds like you are forcing the cd's into overburn(eg, trying to burn 800mb of files onto a 750mb disc), this can cause distortion., or as mentioned in other soltion , invest in some quality burning software e.g Nero Burning Rom.

Re: Burned CDs don't play properly

If it won't play right when you put it in the cd may be that the burning system that you're using is off and needs to be updated or trashed for a new that?

My HP desk top is almost a year old. The dvd/cd burner is a real pain. Regardless which program CD are burned with they are indicated as successful burns, but in playing them the songs are chopped up,...

There probably is no way to fix this. If it is the problem, getting and installing a new cd drive is very simple. You can buy a new drive here: To remove the old one, all you need to do is open up the side, unscrew the one or two screws holding it to the case and unplug the two cables that are attached to it. The install the new one, slide it in attach the cables and put the screws back in. It is as simple as that and should work just fine after that. If you don't need the Blu Ray part of the drive you can always save some money by buying one of these instead:

You mean, you burn the CD in your PC but you can't play it in external CD player ?
Maybe you didn't burned it in "movie" mode, just burned in "data" mode. As you know, CD player can't play .avi or .mkv or other video formats. They only can play movie in .DAT format, and when you burn in "make a movie" mode, the burner will convert your movie to this format so you can re-open your movie via CD player.
Or there is an error during the burning time, if this happen then you have to re-burn your movie into another CD.

Hope this help and be kind to rate this answer.

I have an Hp laptop with a pioneer dvdrw dvr k17b not burning.

dies your burned this work on your PC? if it works on your pc you just have to select the correct settings for your burning software, when you burn does it ask you to burn multiple sessions? if it does and you selected the option create multiple session then what will happen is the disc's you burnt will only work on your windows and not on any other computer or devices that use dvd's or cd's, on the options it will also have a choice for you to choose single session only wherein this will allow you to use the burnt disc in any other computer and will most likely work 100% of the time ^_^ NOTE: this step I gave all depends on the software you use to burn your disc and you may be required to play around your software for some softwares do not have the same info in them but at time be the same in thier function and purpose ^_^ I just based this answer to your question using my NERO

You need to burn your CDs in Audio format. That means that you cannot just burn your MP3 or WMA files, but you need to use the program which can convert those files to WAV format and write them so that ordinary CD players can reproduce them. Nero is such a program, among others.

I had the problem of burned CD's not playing in my car. I used a CD-R and burned it at "slow" burn rate. Now I don't have a problem with playing the cd's in my car player. Try it, it worked for me.
