Anyone who has read about my woes with the Donnas DualDisc (won't play in my SACD/CD players, car cd player put small scratches on the DVD side, etc.) might assume that I have reservations about the format. Well, after what happened tonight, I have more than reservations... I HATE IT!!!!! My daughter (age 10) starting asking if she could get the new Simple Plan CD. I told her if she had enough money of her own we will go to Best Buy and get it. She had about $9.75 so we went to Best Buy where it was on-sale for $9.99 + tax (I chipped in the rest). Best Buy ONLY had the DualDisc version, where I would have rather purchased the redbook CD version seeing that it was for my daughter. I figured that she only plays CDs anyway on her portable player and/or boombox in her room. Well, I reasoned that the DualDisc version should play fine in her boombox anyway. WRONG! Now here is where I start to get real miffed. My daughter comes to me telling me that the DualDisc is defective. She read the little insert and understood what the disc was all about, so she thought that her boombox broke. I come to the rescue, but not really much of a rescue. I fool with the player and disc, but the boombox will just not register that there is a disc, while all her other CDs play fine. Huh, the CD layer of the Simple Plan DualDisc won't play in my daughter's boombox. I try my system, same deal as the Donna's disc - no go in any of my CD players. Yes the DVD-Audio portion plays fine, but my daughter is not allowed, at her age, to fool with my system unless I am overseeing her. The funny thing is that my daughter says "I think the disc is too thick to play in my CD player"; and I didn't put that idea anywhere in her head, she figured it out on her own. I am now at the point where I truly believe that Dualdisc stinks. I, personally, will buy a DualDisc for the DVD-Audio content (if there is some) on titles I might be interested in, but I forsee terrible trouble if a disc I want is released only in the DualDisc format, but does not have a hi-rez layer on the DVD side. Since I can't seem to effectively play the CD side of a DualDisc in my home, I would be precluded from purchasing any that don't give me the hi-rez layer. I am definitely not happy. I am now going to shoot off an e-mail to WMG DualDisc division.
