Actually, that is strange... Usually, this is the player's doing and not the CD.
I just tested a CD that I burned in CDA 5.0 and I can go backwards and forwards
through the tracks at will. No problems.

Have you tried in other players?

But why would it be OK with production CDs, but not with CDA CDs? I don't buy it.

By the way, I can go backwards...just not backwards beyond track #1.

Update: This actually works on a new CD I burned. It must have been a faulty CD.

Sorry for the confusion this may have caused.

What exactly do you expect to find before track 1 ?

Well...on a 13-track CD, I expect to find track 13. Not only do I expect it, but I do find it. As I said, this was a bad CD. All other behave as I expect.

That's odd. I have 4 CD players and none of mine do that, on pressed or CD-Rs. Maybe it's a special implemented feature of your player(s)...

Some of my players do, some don't. I guess it's just a choice made by the embedded software designers for each individual model.
