Slow/No access to Burned Audio CDs
Posted on 2000-01-15
I recently purchased a Pentium 3/500 computer with a CD-burner pre-installed, along with Adaptec's Easy CD Creator 3.5, and DirectCD.
I just created my first CD using the step-by-step wizard (my computer-guru skills are not in that area yet), and after the testing phase, the recording phase went fine, and the CD-RW drive wrote the Table of Contents to the CD-RW disc and said it was good to go. I tried it in a cd-player here at home and it just didn't want to read.
I put it in the computer's regular cd-ROM drive (not CD-RW), and it took quite a while for the drive to pick it up as an audio CD, but finally began to play. When any changes occur (track changes, pausing, etc...), the cd continues to read for a bit and all the controls freeze up, and after about 3 seconds the controls are back to normal and the track changes. This is unbearable, so please help.
I've heard that CD-RW discs don't do well as audio CD's, but then again I've heard from others that they do fine. What's up?
