Problems with my CD-RW???

I have the Lite-On 24x10x40x that I got from www.newegg.com and I only burned a few disc so far. I have only burned .mp3s and seems to me a few of them skipped. I want to know is it my burner or is it the disc that I am using??

I am using Memorex 24x.

I burn at 16x speed just to be sure. I burned my first cd at 24x and at some songs there is this like whipping noise in the back.

Please help!!! What to do???

what type of player are you playing them in

16x is probably still way too fast for most players

slow it down considerably more for better quality

top speeds are generally just for data.... user lower speed for audio and video

I just play it in a regular cd player or a car cd player.

It seems to work fine if I play it on my computer.

Ok, so what speed should i burn at??? 8x???

If your car cd player, or portable cd player is more than 1 year old, it will probably have trouble playing a music cd burned at a speed faster than 12x. Older CD players have always had trouble reading CDRs burned at high speeds. I burn all my music at 16x on my Lite-On. I have a trunk-mounted CD changer that's over a year old and it will not always read the discs i burn.

Definitely try burning one at 8x and see if that solves your problem. You also might want to pop in one of those laser cleaners for your portable and car cd player as well.

And finally, make sure you listen to your mp3s all they way through before burning them to audio Cds to make sure that they don't have any skips or hisses or any other imperfections.
