If you check past threads you will find that you need a new transport and software upgrade. I had to do this with my 8260.

Here is a link to a thread with similar issues:
I have faced this issue with 1 SACD till date - Patricia Barber's Modern Cool (MoFi). The other SACDs that I have play fine on any layer.
What s/w upgrades are available? Can the user do the s/w upgrade or do you have to send the player to Chicago service center? Are all your SACD/CDs playing fine now?
I tried an 8260 this past summer from Archive Audio and had a similar problem and I sent it back. The player gave me "error" messages with any CD which had a navcom band (remember those)around the edge and it also locked up on my Telarc "Epics" SACD in the middle of the track. When I removed the disc it had some small liquid spots on the play side which weren't there originally. My experience was not good with this player so I purchased a Denon 2910.
