I made a CD for my alarm clock last night out of a variety of songs. The only thing they have in common is that they end up pretty loud. This makes sense; I want to wake up. The format of the songs was mixed. There were some .mp3s, some .m4as, and some .m4p's. The CD seemed to burn all right... a bit slower than usual, and it significantly overestimated the time at the beginning, then began counting down 2-4 seconds at a time, but that was all. When I put the CD in my alarm clock, I found a problem: the AAC (both kinds) tracks converted extremely quietly; if Mr. Jones (MP3, Counting Crows) was loud enough to almost wake up someone next door, Friends will be Friends (.m4a, Queen) wouldn't have woken me up, 3 feet away, if it had been the first song. I've burned CD's from iTunes for my alarm clock before, and they've never had this problem, although the previous one I burned was in October, so I'd imagine it could be a problem with the current version. Any thoughts?
