the difference between regular cd's and burned ones is the fact that normal cd's are stamped (or engraved),thus have little "potholes" (don't know how else to describe it
)in which the laser beam is broken,which gives the right digital combination
with burned cd's, the surface is being discoloured by heat (hence the term burned) to simulate the light breaking from the laser beam..
you don't need to be a genius that in the case of burned cd's , the surface is more vunerable to scratches, grease stains...

Just an example that happen to me two weeks ago: I was hearing a cdr ( wink ) from Eros Ramazzotti and in my way to work it jumped a bit (the street is not good) but even so I thought that was not normal... So when I got home I recorded that cd again but this time in my cdr (Asus and not a LG as the other where the 1st cd was recorded) and using a different cdr brand: changing from MMore to Sony.
The cd never jumped again.
But in your case Reuven, I'm affrayed it must be more then that... but probably cleaning the unit will solve the problem. wink
