I bought this player from RS yesterday and have it hooked up via RGB to my Philips 9527 (and before anyone asks, no, I can't see any dark bands!) I'm happy with it's picture and sound when playing DVD and standard audio CDs (wasn't multi-region out of the box but remote hack works fine) but as yet I have had no joy in getting it to play mp3 discs. When I insert a disc of mp3s it spins up and then says 'bad disc'. I've tried this with two different discs and both gave the same result. Is there a particular format of mp3 (cbr, vbr, id3v1/2?) or disc format (mode1/2xa? udf? microsoft? joliet?) which I need to use (burning with Recordnow Max). Any suggestions welcome!
