Lately, when I burn audio cds, I have been getting this noisy scratchy sound that I can hear on the cd when played on a stereo. This has happened before with an older cd writer I had and thought maybe it was just the writer. So, I upgraded and got a better one. Now, it's doing it as well. I've tried burning at different speeds, using different burning software and it still seems to do this. I thought it was the cd-rs before too, but its happening with all different kinds of cd-r's. Has this happened with anyone else? Is there a solution? Is it maybe the laser eye getting dirty? thanks!
