    has anybody had probs with deteriorating quality on burned CDs? First 5 or 6 songs ok, then get progressively more garbled on playback. Am using Cendyne 48x12x48 burner, Nero 5...some CDs work fine, others not. I thought it might be too high a recording speed, but even a 4x (lowest speed I can choose in Nero), still having problems, but seem improved. Oh, btw, I am also trying to burn with only 64M of RAM in a PIII 933 running Windows Me...I know, I know...but I DO reboot and defrag before every burn...Any suggestions would be very helpful...thanks!

    Hi – welcome to TSG.

    You might also Ctrl+Alt+Del and end task on everything but Systray and Explorer.

    That being said I don’t think a RAM deficit would cause a drop in recording quality after 6 or so songs. Heat could be causing an alignment problem with the reader/laser or you could have gotten a bad batch of CDRs.

    If you have had the same results with different brands of CDR and are not using RW I would return the unit if that is still possible.
