Hi- I just bought an NEC ND-1300A DVD-R/RW & CD-R/RW drive... I've installed and began burning various things to CD-R and DVD-R. I have had sucess burning wave files to CD already with no problems... The burner is rated for up to 16X burn speed for CD-R but I alway drop it down t 12X when burning audio files. In any event, I've tried to to burn a group of wave files to disc this morning at 12X speed using Nero 6, and the resulting disc burned but the songs sound choppy with static... This is a sign of buffering problems, yes? I tried again and dropped the burn speed down to 4X and still got the same poor results. I checked the wave files on my system and played them with Windows Media Player and they sound fine - so the errors are definitely taking place in the burn. I noticed that while burning in Nero, the buffer status bar was fluxating between 96% and 98% - rarely ever hitting 100% I'm using Fuji CD-R media which is conmpatible with my burner as noted in specs... and have had previous luuck with this media already. Can anyone offer some advice? Thx.
