Thread Name: Tech: CD Burning - Help!!!
Subject: RE: Tech: C.D BURNING. HELP!!!
I use a version of Nero, and I've found it helps to do a complete restart of the computer system before copying anything. The little brain in my PC seems to get addled easily. I've also had less trouble copying from a CD to a CD than from the hard drive to a CD (I've been making cassette tapes of my husband's group's performances, then running them through Cool Edit to adjust levels, and them burning them to CD so everyone can have a copy - useful for hearing what really goes on during a concert). Most of the trouble with skip and noise is on the "master" disk, which sometimes takes a couple of tries. Once it's clean, the copies have been clean. I have a fast drive, and burn as fast as the disks are rated - usually 48X. But, of course, this isn't for general distribution - just to help the group with rehearsal strategies - so I'm not as concerned about perfection.

Best of Luck,
JudyB
