If possible, when burning an audio CD, you should try to use the "disk at once
" option. If your CD burner software has it and your hardware supports it, "disk at once" causes the CD to be burned all in one continuous pass without ever stopping the laser, whereas otherwise the laser is turned off after each track and then started again for the next track. This starting and stopping of the laser causes slight discontinuities between the tracks, and while this generally should not stop an audio player playing the CD through, it often will stop an audio player from being able to find individual tracks on the CD when you try to use things like programmed play, random play, or even just to manually skip to a track other than the first track on the disk.
