    I still burn DVD and CD from time to time, though i have noticed i use them a LOT LESS now due to USB being big enough :D

    I still burn important things on DVD and CD i feel they are safer hahaha

    It can depend on several factors,to name a few:
    your burner and it's firmware not supporting some media brands
    burning speed to high
    too many burning programs installed,conflicting/interfering with each other,for example,Alcohol 120% "ignore media type" checked
    buffer underrun problems

    As you see,there's plenty to check,and as there's no error correction on audiocd's,they're more sensitive than datacd's.

    Hmm.
    Seems I have been down this road before. Multiple hardware/software/media combinations. I dunno. Maybe I will try the suggested application and buy a few music cds to see if it helps. Or, I could just fork out for a new cd player at home and in the car I suppose ;)

    Specialised empty audio cd-r's are a waste of money for your case.....they are intended for use on a standalone audiocd-copier and just carry a copybit protection layer on the lead-in to comply with the "Digital Audio for Consumers" standard,as directed by the RIAA.
    Better search for real Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim cd-r and burn them @ 16x max if your home cdplayer or car stereo skip or can't read your burns.
    @ high burning speed,the pits and lands on the cd-r are sometimes not deep enough to be readable @ other equipment,besides computer hardware....

    Hmm. Interesting. What about DAO vs SAO and other options? Or what about the time between tracks? Quite often I find that if I stick a cd into the player over and over, one out of 20 inserts will sometimes read it, and will start the track. Once the track starts, it is good and plays fine. However, forwarding to next track generally causes the disk to error, but not always. This is true of many players both in vehicles and at home and portable ones, on various media but not those two listed AFAIK, and on lets say maybe 8 different burners with many different softwares.

    DAO is mostly used for disc to disc or image to disc copy(ideal for live-cd's)
    SAO is for multisession cd's,you can add data later,or other data(examples are cd-extra and mixed mode) but the cd is already playable on most equipment due to it's closed session.
    TAO is for creating your own compilation,you can re-order the tracks,add or remove silence gaps and more...

    I voted Nero (paid) and ImgBurn.

    I used ImgBurn in a family's member laptop, which I installed. It does the required job. But, I use Nero because I find it to be a full workable solution for me.

    ImgBurn has one huge problem for me; it won't create multi-session disks. Otherwise, I'd only use this one.

    For audio CDs copying, you really want Exact Audio Copy and NOT any of the generic burning apps.

    Anyone using Ashampoo 2010 on Windows 7, 32 bit? If so, any issues?

    Apparently it's version 9.12. I am just now trying out the features of Windows 7. How is the built in burner in Win 7 for burning cd's?
