Have you done any basic maintenance such as cleaning the laser?

If you've had that player that long, and never cleaned the LASER: This wouldn't hurt- (http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Discwasher-RD1142-2-Brush-Wet-CD-DVD-Laser-Lens_W0QQitemZ120353745726QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item120353745726&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1234%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50) Chances are good that the anti-copy CODEC is screwing you up though. A warning label won't affect your LASER(They don't scare that easily). =8^)
I have used a CD 'Laser Cleaner Disk' from time to time but it does not affect the disc errors received in any way, but have never attempted to clean it in any other way.. i.e. requiring disassembly... as for the CD's themselves, yes they play fine in other equipment and my MacBook... I've even tried importing them into iTunes and ripping new audio discs to CD,,, no difference at all... funny comment about the Warning Label btw .... :^0 maybe time to upgrade to the T585 (SA)(HD)CD which will play DVD Audio as well.... I do like the 'sound' of this player tho' ... depending on how the NAD compares I may keep it for the older CD's that it will play w/o problems... thanks to all who responded.
