Got a new Cd ( Dan Mangan)- I have 3 stereo's, it wouldn't play properly on any of them. Cleaned said Cd-still jumping. So, ripped it , then burnt it to a blank, it plays fine!! How come?

I can oly hazard a guess that the info on your cd was fine but the disc itself may have been somehow slightly warped (assuming that you have looked for tell tale scratches, this may not be noticeable to the naked eye), when you ripped the music the info stayed intact and was then sucessfully transferred to a blank cd that was't blemished. Like I say only a guess.

Edit - to test this theory, if you kow anyone with said cd, ask to borrow it and see if it plays ok.

Did youever meet the man and have a falling out?
I just wondered because he might havr got hold of your DNA and has his CDs encoded so they will not play if handled by you.

But we don't know if this happens on all Dan's cds that SR has bought, Peter.
We would also need to know which were bought before the alleged falling out to draw a firm conclusion.
Also what about remastered versions of those bought before the falling out - would they be playable or not ?
There are still too many grey areas in this whole affair to my mind.

Dear Sparky , I am able to confirm that Oh Fortune has (thus far) never given me a moments problem whatsoever, at all, even a bit.

We must be grateful for small mercies eh, SRJ !
Seriously, never had this prob myself though did have one Joni Mitchell cd that refused to play properly through i-tunes. No explanation, but there was a comment on another thread I started to the effect that when ripping/burning the program applies 'corrections' to what it is processing that can improve the sound (don't ask me to explain any further!) so maybe your computer did something along those lines. Some audiophiles claim to prefer burned copies to the originals I'm told.
