Okay, here's the skinny:
My friend's CD, when I burned it, had the exact same error at the exact spot. I also went back into my older burns and located an earlier burn of this same CD - and the same song had the same error - don't know why I didn't notice it at the time. Anyway, form a technocretin like myself, I don't think it's a
Roxio error, it's not a commercially produced CD error (unless it's the same on every CD), it's not a blank CD error so my last option is to locate another
computer with burn capabilities and attempt to burn it on that one. As an afterthought, anytime I'm confronted with something I cannot explain, I convince myself there's a little gremlin somewhere in my computer who's f---ing with me. Whaddya think?
