desperate attempt for help.. cd player has static on songs..

posted this on porsche forums with not much help, but i figured audio should be pretty much the same for all cars so i thought it'd give it a try here...

on my car when i play cds from my cd changer they would be random static on some songs.. usually in the later songs .. ie: tracks 6-12.. the static is not always in the same time/area of the song sort of just random. i have tried swapping different cds and it's the same story. i've cleaned the magazine and the cd changer as best as i could and it's the same still. checked the wires, all secure. (at least from the end of the cd changer) i couldn't trace the wires all the way. anyone know what could be wrong?
thanks
jon

not sure but i've had this happen on mine occasionally and its usually when I play an older cd that may be a bit scratched up, never happens with newer cd's. test it out and see if this is what yours is doing as well.
