deathatthedoor, audio cd's play at 2X whereas game cd's (much like digital data cd's for games & software) run at maximum speed that your cd drive can offer. that is a big difference so that's why u don't get to hear about worn-out audio discs. as for me i've seen quite a lot of worn-out audi discs. mostly due to cheap or defective players.

Ah, I see. Yes you are perfectly right. Haven't thought of it.
