I never bought a DualDisc. Basically every one of the transports I owned had a disclaimer in the manual similar to this "Some DualDiscs: A DualDisc is a two sided disc with DVD on one side and digital audio on the other side. The digital audio side does not meet the technical specifications of the Compact Disc Digital Audio (CD-DA) format so playback is not guaranteed." While I never either personally witnessed it or knew someone with a problem, some reported hardware issues while attempting to play a DualDisc.
Sounds like you own an audio cd / sacd / dvd-audio / etc ... disc player which was manufactured after the mid-2000s.
For over the past 20 years or so, I have not really used my cd player much for listening to music. Every time I purchased a new cd title, I just ripped the entire cd disc to the computer.
The few times I have used my old cd player in recent times, it was mostly when I was willing to devote my full attention to listening to a cd from start to finish. In contrast if I'm just playing music in the background, then I'll just play *.wav files on the computer.
