Hybrid SACD sometimes works, sometimes doesn't
I use a I use a Samsung Writemaster TS-H552U drive to listen to Hybrid SACDs.
The first Hybrid SACD I used was Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. It worked fine. I retried it several weeks later and it didn't. It hasn't worked since.
The second I used was The Kinks' Preservation: Act 2. It did not work the first time I tried it, but it worked the second. And the fourth.
The drive can only be persuaded on certain days, it seems. A bit like a grumpy person. Is there a reason for this? Is there a way to make it more reliable?
P.S. Normal CDs work okay in it every time. Could it be something to do with the player looking for a DVD layer instead of a CD one? If so, can I tell it what to look for?
