Are DualDiscs Safe?

A cloud has appeared on the horizon for DualDisc - the innovative disc technology which marries the DVD format on one side of a disc to CD audio on the other. Onkyo is the latest major consumer electronics manufacturer warning customers it may not be safe to play the hybrid CD/DVD discs. Onkyo has announced it will launch an investigation into the suitability of the discs.

DualDisc, debuted by Warner Music, have DVD content on one side and CD content on the other. The issue is with the CD side which has failed to license the Compact Disc logo as it does not meet the appropriate specifications. Although warnings on the discs admit they may not play on a limited number of models, three major players, Sony, Pioneer and Sony Computer Entertainment have all issued warnings prior to Onkyo.
