CD Distortion After Bruning
There are various things that can be done here. You'll need to make sure somethings first before we conclude there might be a defective with your burner:
- Music quality: if you burn audio you should always looks for high quality files, In case of MP3: search files with at least 192 kbp/s of bitrate. If there are files with higher bitrate, they are better. Here is a overview of speeds and there quality:
96 kbp/s: FM Quality
128 kbp/s: Low CD Quality
160 kbp/s: Higher CD Quality
192 kbp/s: High CD Quality
220 kbp/s: Better Quality
320 Kbp/s: Studio Quality.
Note that files with a higher bitrate use up more space on your harddisk. For example: 320 kbp/s is usually between 8 and 12 MB's. (Depending on song length).
- Overburn: Do not overburn CD's. If it says it's almost full. Don't force a overburn.
- Disc Media: Make sure your disc are of decent quality. The less known formats/cheap ones are usually not that good.
- Your PC: While burning, don't do too much with the PC. It's best to let it burn and do nothing.
- Speeds: always use only speeds the discs are capable of and preferably less then indicated, For example: disc says 52x, use something link 32x
I hope this helps out. Let me know if these hints worked.
You can always update your burner's firmware but you'll need to tell me something more about it. Like: what model is it, what brand etc.
Have you also checked whether the lens on your CD player is OK?
