The other day I was kicking back listening to a CD when it skipped. I'm about as anal as you can get when it comes to keeping CD's clean and scratch free so I didn't think it could be the disc. It didn't happen again so I paid it no mind. Here I am today listening to a couple more CD's when I realize that I have a real problem. Now at roughly the same minute mark on different discs they skip. Sometimes back, sometimes a little forward.
It seems to me that something is screwed internally. My CD player is about 11 years old so there's a good chance that time and entropy have caught up with it. Any advice? Is it time to write it off and purchase a new player?
Update: Ok, it might be screwed up more than I thought. Now it seems to be skipping a several different minute marks but not consistantly. Argh!
