Oh, good! Someone else is having trouble too, so I'm intersted in replies to your question! Actually I don't get crackling but it does seem to skip and repeat stuff. I've tried using digital and analog settings, error correction on & off, and cleaning my CD's. Strangely though, I only see problems when playing back audio CD's and when my kid plays games (simple kindergarten age stuff). However, when she goes to bed and I play one of my games (like Undying), I don't run into any problems like that at all! Is there anything else I should be checking? I've had this problem before on an older system, but the Auto correction feature solved that problem before.
