I recently went out and bought 10 Kodak Gold 650MB Gold CD-R's and I purposely choose Kodak due to their reputation of Gold discs. Well time to burn the MP3's onto one of these discs, as I removed the jewel case from the shrink wrap and placed it into my Liteon 48246S burner, and went ahead with the burn using Nero as usual. The burn process took about 10 mins or slightly more at a speed of 4x and all went well on that side of things.
Now coming to play the disc in my Sony Discman, after placing the disc and closing the lid, the disc started to spin, then stop, then spin and then finally stop, like it sounded that the Discman was strugling to read the CD-R. So I decided to open and close the lid and I was back to square one again, once again the disc would spin then stop then spin then stop. Finally on the third or 5th attemp the disc did finally spin and the amount of tracks with timeetc came up. I did finally attempt to plug in my Grado headphones and play the unit, it did play well, but unfortunately there was a very slight but of skipping on some tracks, not bad but you could pick it up, and especially with Track 1.
Now I've never ever had any of these problems when using any other discs apart from the Kodak Gold discs. I mainly use the Kodak Ultima Gold & Silver discs and these have worked like a charm, with no reading errors what so ever,but I just decided this time to give the Kodak Gold a shot. So pls help me, whats to blame my burner or my discman. Also BTW my Sony Discman is almost if not over 10 yrs old.
