God I want to like this player, which I got from Best Buy three days ago, and I see a serious visual improvement from my old Tosh 2200, BUT this morning I tried to play a couple CD-Rs and even standard CDs and I got nothing... Just says "LOADING" then returns a "DISC ERROR" on the screen... Has anyone else experienced this? Without any logical explanation, I am afraid the little sucker is going back to Best Buy. The question is to go thru hastle of returning it for a new unit or this might be symptomatic of the batch of players? I have read about some of the problems with this unit (here and audioreview.com), but that is the first I had heard of this problem. Connection is via Coaxial Output to Sony Processor, but that really shouldn't matter. Thanks for feedback!!!!
