    Don't know if anyone else has any experience with this? A mate gave me a DVD+R double layer disc with quite a lot of cricket on it - but I cannot watch England beat Australia!

    The player stops playing about half way through - presumbaly when it changes layers - or fails to. (or are Arcam using Aussie components now?)

    Anyone else have any success playing double layer +Rs? Would a firmware upgrade be likely to fix it? (mine is 5.2.0/LT78/02/FF).

    Any experience anyone would like to share - I would be more than happy to hear.

    The only other discs I have been unable to play are 99 minute CD-Rs and a suspiciously cheap DVD I picked up in the far east - which was a double layer disc but with so little "silver" on it that it was almost totally transparent.
