I’ll try cleaning the lens. Thanks. It is odd that it is just this batch of CDs it doesn’t like. As for clipping of the first song (Fly Like An Eagle) I think this is the case with Band on the Run DTS CD as well. The first few guitar notes are missing from the first track.
Some players are slow to pick up dts as well, it seems. But would not doubt for one minute it could be the discs. Disc blank quality just seems to keep inching down, although my big gripe is DL Blu-Ray discs, first, and DL DVD next, although not as much with the DL DVD for me. Verbatim has their premium DL DVD inkjet printable (98319 I think) discs prices jacked into the stratosphere. Verbatim used to be the gold standard but I get as many coasters with the DL BD discs as from all but the very cheapest ones. (even burning at 2x) I wish Panasonic was cheaper than they are, they are recommended by LG (or were) for their BD burners.
For CD's I just buy 100 PlexDisc inkjet printable but really never had many coasters from regular CD's that I remember.

There are 2 different versions of “Band on the Run” DTS CD. One with a purple label and another with a yellow label (If I remember 10 years ago). The first version actually has 2 seconds missing, the second version corrected this, although oddly, in Mono in 4 speakers. That is, if I remember right.

I didn’t know DVD Extractor could convert files now to a DTS CD, and burn with ImgBurn, so please ignore that part of the post. I haven’t tried this method yet, but it looks good:

I paid $100 in the late 2000’s for Minnetonka SurCode DTS CD encoder. It was professional software. Unfortunately, in addition to the serial numbers one received with the software, you had to get more numbers from Minnetonka. Not sure if they’re even in business anymore. I can’t reinstall without the extra serial numbers.

Before you said they were wav + cue. Now you are calling it an mkv?

Get the properties of the original wav using media info or something else and find out what you have. Nobody here can help you without that info.

My bet is the wav is 16 bit and 44.1 hhz. In that case it is dts within a standard CD spec, so you would treat it like any other CD. You can burn it to a standard CD. It won't burn to a DVD.

It is wav + cue. When I mux to dvd, it says it will only mux to mkv. I don’t know what to do with an mkv.

Wav files have different attributes. Can't help without knowing them as I mentioned before. Good luck.

The error message says it all. You can't create a DVD with 44.1 kHz files. Use AudioMuxer or some other program to upsample to 48kHz (although I've never tried upsampling a DTS file, you may have to convert to pcm wav or flac first).

OK. Apparently AudioMuxer will not directly convert a dts wav to 48kHz unless you have surcode DTS DVD installed.
Suggest you convert to pcm wav or flac, upsample to 48kHz, then....? Unless you have a DTS encoder capable of using 48kHz files, I just don't know. eac might.
