I actually had the opposite problem as randyvee--I played back my test audio CD, and some songs were missing 15+ seconds compared to the original MP3s! Going back to the freebies like Burn and LiquidCD.

Used this yesterday to burn a audio CD after it popped up top of the list and I was in too much of a hurry to dig further for other apps. When I played the resultant CD I was rather surprised by the random long pauses inserted at the end of tracks! A 41 minute album ran for 70 minutes!
