I'm new to this forum and this is my first try to get some help for my 'somewhat' annoying problem:
My cd-burner worked fine some days ago, and now it does not, and I haven't changed a thing!
I use Nero 5.5 combined with an internal Teac w540e CD-Burner on windows XP.
My system is high-end, so I meet all possible requirements you could throw at me.
I have updated my burner Firmware to the latest version.
When I burn an audio-CD, the burn process completes successfully.
However, when I play the CD in 'any' cd-player, the sound is terrible. The right channel is perfect and sounds like the original mp3's I burned off my harddrive, the left channel is extremely distorted, playing about 3 times louder than the right. Now, when I say extremely distorted, I'm talking about high-pitched white-noise, where you 'barely' hear the music in the background.
I have tried to play around with some of the burn-settings, but I'm not as educated when it comes to cd-burning, so I really have no idea what I'm doing.
First of all, can anyone help me with this?
Second, are there special drivers or codecs I need for this operation?
(on my old motherboard, the burner worked fine. after upgrading to a newer motherboard, the burner started acting up, burning coasters, so I installed standalone ATAPI drivers, and this seemed to fix it.. until a few days ago, when this stupid error hit me like a rotten egg..)
