CD-playing problems

I just picked up the Persephone's Bees album, but my car CD player is having a lot of trouble playing it even though it's only ever had problems playing burned CD's, and it worked fine on my computer. I exchanged it for another copy, but still the same problem. Are some CD's just lower quality or what? Not sure if I should try exchanging it again.

Does it have one of these logos on it?

It might have some kind of DRM/copy management that's keeping it from being read on standard CD players. It would seem that any CD crippled in that way shouldn't have that logo, but I'm sure the music companies have never trampled consumer rights like that.

Did you Google to see if other people are having the same issue? If they're not and there's no DRM, it might be possible that your car CD player is starting to break. Any other stand-alone CD players you can try it on?

Looks like it's got that logo on the disc, and I couldn't find anything on Google (it's only been out a week, though). I just tested it on my Playstation1, DVD Player, and Sega CD and it played fine. I'm just not sure what the deal is since I tested another CD on my car's player and that one worked great.
