I'm having some trouble with my Duo. Whenever I try to play a CD (ie Ys I&II or Ys III), my duo doesn't seem to be able to load the music. I can hear it working non stop to get it to load, but it just can't seem to do it. If I open up the cd hatch, it'll load up the game and I can play without music; however, I have to do this everytime I go to a new area. It can get pretty annoying.
Anyone have any ideas that could help me out here? I really don't want to have to shell out the money for a new Duo as they aren't exactly cheap these day, but I love my Ys games for it. I also have some other games that I really like to play on it. It would be a shame if I had to go with an emulator because of this.

is it the original disc? if not, that is the problem. when burning a Duo cd, put your cd writer at the slowest speed possible. 1x speed preferred since the cd-rom reader insode the duo is only 1 speed and is not capable of reading disc burned at high speed.

It may also have to do with what version of the duo you have, there are several versions, and a couple have trouble with overheating because the laser is too close to the cpu or something. And of course using a cd-r compounds this. Perhaps opening the hatch alleviates the heat load, but doesn't allow the laser to change tracks?

My Duo overheats, thankfully, I paid only 20 bucks for it, and I still have my old TG16 with CD, not to metion my 2 Super Grafx's, which I also have the cd unti for Anyways, on my Duo, before it stopped overheating, my laser would get stuck, & it was always when I would pop in a cdr. It wouldn't go back into place, & then I couldn't play any games, until I opened it up, & gently, as gently can be, moved it back into place, where the lens is supposed to be when you fire it up.
