    Just bought the Shakira CD and it doesn't play on my DVD Player. Then I noticed on the box it says it won't play on PC's or Mac's. I've never seen this before and assume it's the reason for not playing on my DVD but will play on my CD player:confused:

    Can anybody confirm this?

    Another one!
    Apparently some of the record companies are now trying to copy protect CDs and as a result they will not play on computer based CD players. Unfortunately they will not play on some brands of CD or DVD players (especially Philips).

    I am not based in the UK so I am not sure as to how you would complain about this but I strongly suggest that you complain to your local Trading Standards Authority as such CDs do not comply with the CD standards as specified by Sony/Philips.

    This trend needs to be stopped.

    if you get in contact with the record company, they will send you out a free copy of the disc, without copy protection.
