I have problems with burned CD-RW Audio CDs in K3B. I don't know exactly what's wrong. When I burn mp3s as an Audio CD with K3B, the burning process seems to be ok. But when I want to play this burned CD in my PC's CD ROM, the first seconds are snatchy and it seems that it doesn't begin to play at the 1st song but anywhere else. When I want to play this CD in my car radio, the CD doesn't work at all. My car radio cannot read any songs.
Earlier as I didn't use RW CDs but CD R, I didn't have any problems. Maybe the RWs CDs are the reason? I also tried to burn to a different CD RW - same effect. I also tried to burn at different speeds. Once 10x, once "auto" - same effect.
That's the output of the burning process. Maybe it could help:

Any ideas what's the matter?
[UPDATE] I tried it with Brasero, same effect. But Brasero gives me a warning which describes that CD RW Audio CDs will not work with older CD players. Maybe this explains it. But that doesn't explain why my CD Rom (half a year old) has minor problems too (snatchy at the beginning due to playing difficulties).
