Avoid drive vibrations

If you’ve ever noticed that your home-brew CD-R seems to rattle in the drive, it may be the disc itself rather than the drive. CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW drives tend to run faster than ever, and CDs with odd-shaped labels tend to throw the disc off balance. This causes unwanted vibrations in the drive. Check the disc to see that it is seating properly in the drive tray or caddy, and remove any labels if necessary. If you must label a CD, use a felt-tip pen intended for that purpose, or use circular labels that cover the entire disc.
