Re: digital errors?

I too have experienced periodic pops and clicks in my CD copies. I believe
it is relative to speed, system resource usage, and medium. When I made
copies off of CD's via my old CD-ROM which was 8X speed, I experienced lots
of annoying pops. Since I've upgraded to 36X speed, I've experienced far
better performance. Also, when I converted my music to Wav. files and 
to CDR, I again experienced pops. Since I upgraded RAM, the problem has
lessened. As for medium, I had horrible experiences with lesser named CDR
like "Smart and Friendly". Out of 10, I had 5 CD's that had errors when I
tried to format (data) to be CD-ROM readable. Thus, I can only read them 
my recorder. I've had pretty good fortune with TDK.
