Hmmmm..... That sounds strange M8 ??
sounds like your creating the CD correctly only things i can think of is:
What speed did you burn at ? I recommend 1 or 2x
What media You used ? If you normally use this media it should be fine
And one other thing, did you image as binary+cuesheet or ISO ?
I normally image as Bin+cue, as ISO's don't normally work as well for me, well they do but I would still say go 4 Bin+cue format !!!
Hope you sort out the Prob M8, normally it only takes a few seconds to load up the Buffers Etc.
