Yeah, I'm not surprised to hear that. The N2000 doesn't play nicely with most DVD-R discs and the Toshiba can be hit or miss with DVD-Rs. And also can wear out a laser quite quickly. I refuse to use repro discs in my players after repro discs ruined both an N501 and SD-2300.
Repros ruined your 2300? I saved my originals, made duplicates of the main games, and play those on my 2300 fine. One thing about the 2300 is I did have to update the bios to play Tetris, so that might have helped.
That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
