Thank you for your quick response.
Nothing changed on the computer recently but I had not used the program for nearly four months. I made several 'Various Artists' type CDs some weeks ago but ill health prevented me from finishing the job. I finally decided to do the labels and inserts last week and found the problem.
I was probably not intelligent enough to save the burn playlist because I can't find them anywhere to attempt an 'Import' as suggested. The mystery is that the Burner recognises the tracks in the Rip Cd window. Audiograbber (the program I use to mainly record LPs and Cassettes) also reads the CD text as does my player/database Music Bee....
I did a full uninstall of the program using 'Advanced Uninstaller' and removed all traces of the program. a system check discovered another full functioning installation on another drive, which I uninstalled with the acoustica uninstaller. I checked with "Registry Cleaner' to make sure there were no orphan entries and did a fresh instal of version 3.40.
Alas, there is no improvement to the problem and in fact the program crashes EVERY time i attempt a 'Read CD'.
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate - Service pack 1 on a Hewlett-Packard Pentium4 3.20GHz with 2.5 Gb of Ram...
