    There has already been a thread about this. see the earlier thread.

    Not sure if this helps - looks like there is either a fault in some Sony DVD players, or (more likely) some versions of the DVD are copy protected...

    It is not a red book CD - it is a pretend CD

    I've had my 715 since it was first released in the UK in 1998. My player has no problems playing the album mentioned. However, my player had the Firmware update, from what I remeber I think an actual chip needed relpacing on the circuit board, in 1999 (it was a while ago!) which was authorised by Sony. There was a known problem with certain 1st generation models not playing CD Xtra discs. The firmware fixed this along with the problem of the DNR function incrementing by 1 every time the power was cycled on the player. This was widely publicised at the time on Watchdog. I think it was a George Michael CD that highlighted it at the time.

    Hope this helps.

    From memory, the CDG bug with the Sony 715 causes a complete player lockup requiring cycling the power at the mains to regain access, so I doubt this is the problem.

    Incidently the early Sony firmware used to cause horrible video stuttering problems with certain DVDs, so if you don't have your player upgraded it would be well worth your while doing so, I got my upgrade as part of a multiregion upgrade to the player.

    I was able to play Dido No Angel on my 715 without problems, mind you I no longer have access to this CD, the 715 was talking to my Marantz DR6000 at the time....

    I have found the 715 to be a bit fussy about the quality of media it will play - i.e CDs with minor imperfections skipping, which play fine on everything else, but in this case, as it appears to affect so many copies of this CD, I suspect some new dodgy CD protection mechanism is secretly being tested. Personally I think such CDs should not be marked as being a CD as they obviously are not!
