The felt pen trick always covers up the data session, that will stop the data session this always works esp. to stop the session 1 from looking like data and to stop the trojan from loading.
If they added Hardware errors to the audio session (from my tests they didn't) it's that simple.
Since it says this cd may not play on all players, they probably added in C2 errors. I copied the disk by covering up the data session, my plextor ripped it fine. That was on the first release in Germany...dunno if they changed yours.
I think it's CDS-200 + MediaMax = sony protection
