trouble burning audio CD with LG BE16NU50

Greetings. I burned an audio CD with FLAC files using CDBurnerXP to Verbatim CD-R disc, with the LG BE16NU50 (see I noticed that the first 1/4 second or so is missing on each track, so that you don't hear the first note. Has anyone here had similar troubles? My old Pioneer DVD burner didn't have this issue.

Audio CDs are supposed to have 2 seconds gap between tracks, that 1/4 second did probably end up in the gap - you don't hear it when you switch tracks, but if you would listen continuously it's probably there...

I don't use CDBurnerXP or have a LG BE16NU50.

Thanks for replies. I really suspect the design of the LG drive is at fault. CD-Audio burning technology has been around for the past twenty years, so there shouldn't be an issue. I solved the problem (sort of) using a different drive: an older Matshita DVD-RAM UJ8B0AW with K3b (Linux software). However, I didn't test with other software, so possibly I'm wrong about the drive.
