Default Mismatched disc with One by One

I ordered One by One off eBay (which instantly brings possibility for things to be wrong with materials), and I got the right case but the disc said "Times like these acoustic version" and a bunch of numbers. Crazy thing is, the CD worked as One by One. Anybody heard of anything like this? or have I just been duped?

Default Re: Mismatched disc with One by One

you mean in your computer? it says it is something while something else is played?

if so, the problem is with your player, which is rather common, it just fails to search for the right track names online, maybe because of similar catalogue numbers of different CDs, almost none of my single CDs features the right track names.

No, it was the physical CD. Like, it looked like what a single might look like for an acoustic version of times like these. but it came in a one by one case, and played one by one.

It looked exactly like this..

Hopefully that works. But it came in the 1x1 case and played it.

Sounds to me like you were duped, which is why I won't buy used cds online.

I don't think I can get a picture on here that works. If you google images it, it's just a silver disc with the words I said before. It's so weird, because the disc looks like it would be used as a single but has the CD. I don't really care, cause the case is right. If I find it I'll just buy it again!

yeah, duped indeed, what a shame people doing this, but who knows if the person just switched without noticing. I started my foo record collection this year, bought a shit ton of cds on ebay and discogs and all of them arrived in perfect condition, I think this was just bad luck.

you can always contact the seller too, maybe he sends you the cd.

Obviously someone burned it on to the disc....?

That'd just be weird because it isn't a blank disc. Why would they intentionally put it on the wrong disc?
