ImgBrn or CD burner? Distorted discs

Recommended Posts

I don't know, but maybe Express Burn uses it's own audio codecs, not the DirectShow ones, which aren't adding any gain.

I also have installed the K-Lite codec pack, and AC3Filter + MatrixMixer, can't say I haven't had problems or even figured it all out, but then I haven't tried Flac yet. I usually record or convert the music to standard wav format and burn that, or use EAC to prepare the files.

Here's the pattern so far: when I create a cue file or try to burn an image from flac files using ImgBurn, it woeks great most of the time. When this happens, I notice the "analyzing files" status at the bottom of the tab moving through files very quickly - usually 3-5 seconds per song. When it takes a long time to "analyze" files (I guess this is where the software decodes the flac files), I always end up with the distorted disc. Sometimes, my ffdshow icon shows up on my taskbar while it's doing the slow analyzing. I think slow = bad decoding, at least in my case.
