If you asked me to change a gasket, I wouldn't have a hope! ;-) Unfortunately, errors do occur in the CD burning process even at a manufacturing level. Once again it can be a number of factors, the most obvious being a poor batch of CD's to start with. Also, much of the CD duplication market has been farmed out, both to Central Asian and Eastern European countries. Sadly, this has resulted in a drop in quality control, and thus there are some CD's are poorly manufactured. The luck of the draw and market pressures :( If this is happening with all your CD's then there is something up with the player - probably either dust/grit in the laser track, or some other manufacturing defect, if it's only on some, then I'm sorry but you're going to have to put up with it! I would however, recommend cleaning the player regularly. Not too often or you'll start scoring the head of the laser, but once a fortnight or once a month is good practice. Anything else you want to know, just let me know. H.
