I’ve noticed that CDs burned from computers don’t last nearly as long as “factory” CDs. They seem to be prone to hanging, “picket fencing,” difficulty searching and other anomalies. I’ve had some given to me by friends that would start acting up the second time I played it!
So, what’s the deal with this? Is it that some CD players aren’t as robust as others with their playback? E.g., car players vs. home players?
Or maybe, does it have anything to do with the actual burn process? I wonder if burning at a slower speed would make a difference – say, at 8x vs. 24x.
