K3B: mp3 to music Cd issue

I've been burning some rather large mp3 files to audio-cd with K3B (about 60 to 75 minutes) and have found that the beginning, and especially the end of the files once burned to cd are incomplete.
In the last one I did experienced a loss of as much as 5 minutes at the end. Now the file was 65 minutes long, bitrate 62.500kbps, 44100Hz, 16 bit stereo. I also know K3B used DAO. I burned at 4x and didn't do anything else while I burned the cd and the buffer never went under about 85%. I'm thinking that maybe the compression was too much for DAO to handle and that it would do a better job at, say, 64 bit, or even 128, but I'd like to confirm that before I waste any cd's on the attempts.
Is there any other way to avoid this problem?

If you have 700mo free space, try converting your file to wav with mpg123 or mpg321 or anything else before burning.
