I have a Compaq Presario computer with a cd player/burner. It is about a year old.
All of the sudden, any CD that I try to play in it drags and sounds distorted and blurbly (I think I made a new word!).
What do you think is going on with it? I have not a clue!
And I don't have any other programs running at the same time, so there is no interference there.
If you could let me know, I would love you forever.

HI, does the CD that you put in that doesn't play are the CD you use before and plays on your CD player?If yes then that is a lens issue the lens probably need replacement
try to clean first the lens of the player with a soft cloth dip in an alcohol wipe the lens do not apply too much pressure when wiping
are the CD format compatible with your player there are different audio formats which we must consider with the compatibility with the player ex..audio CD,MP3,MIDI,VCD,DVD,MP4 etc.your player must support this format to play this disk.
The primary cause of disk reading failure is the lens itself .if your CD player is more than 3 years old then it must be the lens to replace next is the spindle motor this motor is the one spins the disk the life span of this motor is 4 to 5 years this are the things to consider and you can decide which part needs relacement thank you and good luck!
Dust may not be the entire cause, but without knowing the make and model, anything I list would be pure speculation. Please post the make and model. That should give me enough info to list the probable problems and their solutions.
If your cd player supports MP3 playback. When you write a music disc with your computer you must write them as a data file. Some burning software will ask if you want MP3 or CDA. if your files are CDA you must convert them to MP3s, you can download software to do this for you. But today most burning software will do this for you.
