Very very disappointed and mislead. Not a Karaoke machine compatible download.
on September 1, 2013
THIS REVIEW IS JUST FOR THE DOWNLOADS NOT THE CD+G (Physical media) which is totally fine.
VERY unhappy. This is supposed to be a Karaoke disk... which 99% of the time means it works on a Karaoke machine... which means each song is supposed to come with an MP3 for audio and a CDG file for the words on the screen and if there are any graphics. The other Disney disks like this that we have are as I described... - My daughter wanted this quick so I decided on the download which was a huge mistake... now I just have a bunch of stupid instrumental only soundtracks what a waste.
DO NOT BUY THE DOWNLOAD VERSION IF YOU WANT TO USE IT ON A KARAOKE PLAYER!
I WAS going to just order the CD IF I could have then just downloaded the songs as it SHOULD be but Amazon or whoever only allows a dollar off of the download album so you get to pay twice with a dollar off YIPEE! (No wonder people choose to just download things "illegally".) Now I don't know if I want to risk paying twice anyways trying to get the same functionality I was after off the disk - which again THIS purchase to me is less than useless.
I want a refund. Ridiculous.
9/1/2013 later that evening.
I went out a did a wide search on the net for whether the disk is a CDG (Karaoke machine playable disk: This Disney Karaoke Series: Teen Beach CD is here! Get ready to dance and sing along to your favorite songs from Disney Channel's Original Movie, Teen Beach. The CD features eight vocals plus eight instrumental tracks, CD+G, and lyric book.) GRRRRRRR!
I complained to Amazon about obtaining a refund and if they do refund this I will indeed buy the physical CD+G. Typically when I have purchased CD+G downloads elsewhere I've gotten the CDG files with the mp3's as there are many software packages for making Karaoke CD+G disks from the downloadable files... NOT THE CASE WITH THIS!

Amazon staff was extremely understanding and returned my money without much fuss or work and are looking into the situation. I'll try and move this review to the downloadable version area so as not to hurt sales of the regular physical media ASAP.
