Most of theseCD-Rís were made from analog sources [we thankfully still have them] over 10 years ago, long before we had any sort of digital storage system.  These CD-Rís suffer from a variety of jitter/glitches when exported into the computer and many of them skip or hang up when played in a CD player.  They were all created using a stand-alone Sony CDR-W33 burner and the CD-R stock was JVC/Taiyo Yuden.

Iíve tried copying some of them through iTunes using its built-in error correction.  Iíve downloaded MAX-a CD ripper application for Mac that uses a version of cdparanoiaóIíve also tried Pillage, so far nothing has made any noticeable difference.
