I have checked out a book on CD from the library (brand new). I've been listening to it mostly in the car. I've listened to 11 of the 17 CDs already and it's due to be returned. For my upcoming trip I need to burn the remaining 6 before returning them. I have uploaded a couple of them and it goes through the ripping process correctly. When I listen to parts of these, there are some moments when the recording stutters. Here's how I can best illustrate this:

On original CD-
"Nick heard footsteps coming from across the darkness of the abandoned casino. A heavy limping man in squeeky shoes."


On PC-
"Nick heard footsteps coming fr-fr-from across th-th-the darkness of th-th-the abandoned casino. A heavy limping-ping-ping-ping m-m-m-man in squeeky-ky-ky shoes."


Is this some encription in the original CD? Otherwise, what am I doing wrong? Is there a way around it? BTW, I've tried this with Windows Media Player and Real Player.

The CD is from the library, meaning its probably been used and abused over 100 times. I doubt you will get a good copy of it.

I would have thought the same. Except I'm the first user. It's a brand new library addition.

Could it be some setting in my Real Player or Windows Media player need adjusted? :shrug:

Try to clean your cd drive and the cd.

Try shutting all processes down when you rip/burn the CD. Also, try it at a slower burn setting.

Hey Saul. I edited my thread so others won't have the "abused CD" response. BTW, if it was due to the CDs being abused, this problem would show up listening directly to the CDs as well. But it does not.

Gotcha. However, that is incorrect. A homemade copy can never be as pristine as the original, therefore any errors on the CD will be "magnified"...

I've had dirty scuffed up CD's that play fine, but won't copy worth a crap.

So you don't think it's some sort of a mysterious copyright encription?

Does it stutter in the car? If it does, you know it's not the Media Player or Real Player. What kind of software do you use to burn the CDs?

Not entirely correct. If you use EAC [Exact Audio Copy] and set it to maximize error correction, the program will read and re-read 'scuffy' parts, extracting a bit for bit perfect copy, if it's at all possible. In every instance, it'll be superior to on-the-fly error correction.
