I made a compilation of mp3s i burned to CD to play in my car, but the audio is filled with annoying errors. Errors such as entire seconds or beats missing from the middle of the song, and the beginnings of some songs being cut off completely (like the cowbell from the beginning of Queens of the stone age's "little sister"). I burned the CD slower than its advertised maximum burn speed (32x as opposed to 48x) to try and prevent this, but no luck. Is there any way to stop those errors?
I am using Nero 7.
Nero is converting the mp3s to CD audio while it is burning.
The checkbox "Remove silence at the end of audio tracks" is checked.
Total length of CD is 76:45, which is in the yellow "caution" zone.
Burner is an NEC DVD_RW.
Should i just convert the tracks to CD audio myself using FreeRip2 or mp3directCut (if its possible), rather than letting Nero do it while it is burning, and then pre-listen to make sure it sounds ok?
