Hi all,
I thnk I know the answer to this but I want to know if threr is a solution.
My sister has an audio/video disc (it's the first I have seen) & she wants to load the tunes to her Ipod but the cd will not play on her Vista powered laptop or on my XP pc. I am guessing that we need a dual layer reader to extract the songs.
Right or wrong. Or is there a solution?

Your title says double-sided
Your post says dual-layered
Dual-layered needs a player that supports that media. Double-sided you flip like a record

Thanks garmanma,
It's taken me a while to get back to this topic. To clarify the situation, on the case it says "dual disc" "2-sided disc" so I flipped it like a record but it won't play the audio tracks at all. any ideas?

I saw one a few years ago and I had no trouble with it -- it was a group popular with pre-teen kids (as one of mine was at the time) and I don't remember any problems with it (I usually made copies for the car, so the kids wouldn't risk their original discs) -- but I honestly don't remember very much about it at all.

I did find a description at Wikipedia which notes that the audio side doesn't fully comply with the Red Book (the authoritative reference for CDs), so I suppose an individual drive might have a problem with it.

Can you get it to play -- either through the computer or a CD player?


EDIT: Make sure you've got the right side. If I recall correctly there was a tiny label around the hub -- the label should read "audio" facing up, when the audio side is down -- the usual arrangement.

I don't think I can help you more than that -- I don't know that the kids even still have it.

Good luck.

Thanks Capn,
It does play on a "normal" cd player so I guess you're right about the Red Book idea, I will let my sister know and put tihs one down to experience.
Thanks to you as well Garmanma.
Cheers,
