  1. I like these collections, but I can't get them to play on any CD player except the one in my car. Can you recommend a CD player that will actually play these?

  2. Thank you for contacting us.
    I'm sorry about the problem you're having.
    The CDs are designed to play on all CD players.
    Can you answer a few questions for me?
    1) What country do you live in?
    2) Does your CD player play other CDs?
    3) Does you CD player play only mp3s?
    4) What happens when you put one of the CDs in the CD player?
    5) Do all the CDs in the collection do the same thing in the CD player?
    6) Is this a problem with all the collections or just #9?


  3. I've tried them on several different CD players (2 computers, a boom box and under-counter). The only player that works semi-reliably is the one in my car. I have dozens of Infinivox CDs, there are several with this problem. They will play the first tracks fine, but the last tracks skip or do not ply. There are no visible scratches. None of my other CDs have this problem, and I have many audiobooks.

  4. I'm not sure if you got my email yesterday so I'm repeating it here.

    I'd like to apologize once again for the problems you're having with our CDs.
    I'm very concerned about this.
    We want to send you replacements.
    If you could mail us the CDs that are giving you problems that would help us figure out the problem.
    Mail them to:
    PO Box 418
    Barker, TX 77413-0418
    Be sure to tell us your name and mailing address so that we can send you replacements.
