I bought some Vcds from Asia, I try to play those vcds on Liteon LTD-163 DVD drive, it took a little longer to recognize the disc, when it did play, the movie played a few minutes and it freezed my computer.
I have the latest firmware installed for LTD-163. I used Window Media Player, PowerDVD 3.0, and Xingmpeg player. all of those softwares I used were encountering the same problem. But when I used my Liteon
LTR-40125S (40X12X48 CDRW drive) to play those vcds , it plays movies smoothly. My question is, is dvd drive's region setting not compatible with vcd region setting? or my dvd drive is just not as advance enough to read some foreign vcds? Or is there PIO setting or DMA setting that I configured wrong? LTD-163 is master drive and LTR-40125S is slave drive.
