    Dell computer, Windows XP, Windows Media Player. Sony CD-R disc.

    I am trying to burn a copy of a new music CD for my daughter.

    Seems to rip OK into the hard drive. Will play back just fine on computer.

    When I burn it on CD-R disc, it is "choppy", "skips" (?), split-second of silence then music- don't know how to describe it!

    Have tried twice with new CD-R disc each time, no help.

    You might try a different brand of disk.

    Recomended burn speed for audio is to 16 times! High speed is the reason for interruptions.

    The burn speed has little to do with it. If the drive and medium are rated at the speed that the CD is burned, then the result will be the same no matter what speed unless the machine is a slower one that may have the process interrupted by other processes. In that case, increasing the priority of the burner may help (though many already run at high priority). Then a slower speed (2x, 4x, 8x) may help, or not using the machine for anything else while burning.

    Cleaning the lens is never a bad idea (for the burner and also the player). A film can form on it over time. If there is a validation option, try it to see how good a copy you actually got.
