It may have something to do with its age. When they taught us about
preservation of electronic data on my archives course, I learnt that it is
recommended that data on CDs should be copied onto a new one every 10 years.
This is just in case, because nobody knows yet just how long CDs will last.

Mind you, I have some tapes from the mid-80s and they still play.
