    When i play the new Interpol cd Antics (european version, the uk version and us version should not be copyprotected) i get distortion and i had some other problems with other copyprotected cds aswell .

    Is there a upgrade for this ?

    Is the Arcam cdplayers better to handle cds like this ?

    I played an aerosmith copy protected CD in my DV29 last night and it sounded :censored: awful. I also had problems getting the DV29 to load the CD and sometimes when it did only the first track was available to play :confused:
    I previously had a CD73 and it played fine and sounded great in that, so I think the problem is with the way a DVD player handles copy protected CD's.

    Hmm - generally we can play most copy protected so-called CDs on our DVD players (they are not CDs, as they do not conform to the Philips red book specification), so it would be interesting to know what particular form of copy protection is used on your discs that are failing, so we can follow it up with the drive manufacturer.

    This information may possibly be found on the small print on the box. In any case you should complain in writing to the publisher and ask for a new disc or a refund.

    Sweden - what is the player's drive firmware version (this flashes up for a second or two on your TV when you first switch on the player, at least on the more modern versions of player SW)? It will have two letters followed by a number like LT18 or LT73.
