burner problems.....

I have AOPEN 52x24x52 burner and when I burn cd's, you can
hear a crackling sound in every song when the cd is
playing. I use nero 6 and I have done everything that
neros help page stated. I turned off anti-virus, closed
programs and even burned at a slower speed than the
regular 52x speed. the used read buffer level goes up and
down and the buffer level of the burner goes up and down
real fast (100% to 25% than flies back up to 100% etc).
But sometimes, burning at a slower speed does take away
the crackling, and the buffer level doesnt go up and down
as much. Can anyone help? Im trying to figure out if this
is a Nero problem or burner problem? Oh yea, I even used
real audio player version 10 and that was even worse. When
I tried to play the cd in my car, it wouldnt even
recognize the tracks. Any suggestions? Oh yea, im not
calling nero because it costs 1.29 a minute which I think
is ridiculous!

Generally speaking, lower speed burns yield higher quality disks. If the
quality of the destination media is low (i.e., rated for a 4x max burn rate)
and you try to burn at a higher rate (i.e., 16x), the media won't melt
properly and data gets lost. Some of your problem could be the source media
(poor recording, bad scratches or dirt), some of your problem could be poor
quality destination media (4x versus 52x), some of your problem could be a
dirty lens on the CD-RW or even a drive getting ready to give up the ghost.
Determining which is the cause requires a lot of trial and error, not to
mention time. If you start with a high quality source, a high quality
destination and a very low (even 1x) burn rate, and the problem persists, I
would suspect the drive.
