    Hello, i have a very weird problem...

    I burnt a audio cd (before i used the drive to overburn, if u read my prev post, otherwise, dont worry about reading these brackets)

    This was like maybe few days ago anyway and well i used it everynight on my TEAC portable cd player maybe for like 1hour max

    Then yesterday night i wanted to listen to it again and it didnt work, it acted weird, sometimes it would play then it wouldnt or show an error
    I thought it was because i dropped on the ground a few times (didn't look like it was damadged)

    Then this morning i had a look at the cd and i saw like 2 small holes in the cd, Straight through!

    I'm not sure when the cd had got the holes though...

    So i'm thinking it was the cd player, but ???

    I seriously doubt the laser is burning holes through the CD, there has to be a different explanation! :D The power the laser has is barely enough to read the CD, never mind blow holes through it.

    Sounds like a cheap CD-R. Your CD-RW drive may have loosened the shiny recording material on the back of the CD during the burning process, and the CD-R was unable to hold on to the recording material after the burning process, so it flaked off.
