Audio CDs created with the burner in the unit have static, crackling or popping in the background.
There are several reasons for this.
Burn Speed. For CDs created via the audio CD job type in Primo(PC) or Discribe(MAC) we recommend burning at a speed no faster than 4x. This is due to the format of Audio CDs. Audio CDs do not have built in error correction measures like data and DVD formats.
Read Speed. If you are doing a Disc to Disc Copy or Image job make sure to read in your master at the minimum speed available and then burn at 4x. If 4x seems to be working, try the next higher available speed.
Media Quality. Better quality media can burn audio at higher speeds without problems. Some customers have been able to successfully burn Audio at 52x. We recommend the media available at www.primerastore.com for a good quality audio burning surface.
Update software. Make sure you have the latest software, each newer version has an updated burning engine that makes it compatible with more media types.
