The DVD side of this duel disc isn't read or playable on my U.S. Samsung Blu-ray player. I don't see any notes concerning region codes or PAL/NTSC. Also, the CD side makes a lot of noise in the disc drive of my Macbook Pro, and is ejected. I wonder if this is because of the thickness of the disc, or because the Mac won't accept a hybrid disc. Most disappointing. Thankfully, I have the LP. I bought this to see the films (which do play on the Mac, but not on the Samsung) and to be able to rip and rove, taking the music with me on my iPod... I suppose having purchased this in two formats, it isn't a terrible thing to do. But, alas.
