GUEST,Susan-Marie Tech: jitters when burning CD through USB (13) Tech: jitters when burning CD through USB 19 Dec 04

I recently entered the world of downloading music and burning it onto CDs, and am having some problems with "jitters" on playing the CDs on a CD player. I've read enough miscellaneous FAQs to think I've figured out the problem, but I want someone with some real knowledge to tell me if this sounds reasonable:

I've been downloading the mp3s off the internet (Emusic) to a USB memory stick, and then burning them onto CDs from there using Roxie Easy CD Creator. It is always the same tracks that work or don't work, so at first I thought it was the mp3 files. However, they play fine from Winmedia, so the problem is happening during the CD burn. I thought maybe the mp3 file could be "slightly" corrupt - play OK as an mp3 but not translate well during CD burn - but that sounded a little far-fetched. And then I read a brief reference to problems occurring when a file is transferred through a USB connection. SO now I'm thinking if I copy the mp3s onto my hard drive and burn from there, it should be OK. Is that right? Or will there be problems even copying from the USB to the hard drive?

I'm throwing away a lot of CDs while trying to figure this out so before I try again I'd appreciate someone telling me if I'm on the right track. Thanks!
