Hi, I'm having trouble writing out VCD images that I've read in.

Problem is my DVD player only seems to recognize and play a small number of the VCD's I've burnt. The discs that my DVD player does not recognize play perferctly well in media player.

Can anybody help me with this prob plz.

Are you copying the vcd from another VCD or are you ripping from a DVD to make a VCD? Reason I ask is I had this trouble when I would use Clonecd to COPY a VCD. The only way I was able to get around this was to take the .dat file off the VCD to my hard drive. Then change the extention to a .mpg file. For example if you have a file called "Harrypotter.dat" you would change it to "Harrypotter.mpg" Then run the burn software, like NERO and create a VCD. It will work fine. I hope I understood your question right. If you are creating VCDs from DVDs and having trouble, then I would sugest using EZCD Creator as your VCD writing software. Other softwares are too forgiving if there is a problem with the .mpg - Windows will play these discs but DVD player wont. but EZCD will not let you make a bad disc as easily. Also might want to try a diff. brand of media, this can also cause the problem.

For example if you have a file called "Harrypotter.dat" you would change it to "Harrypotter.mpg" Then run the burn software, like NERO and create a VCD. It will work fine. Depending on the burn software you use, the dat file could be named anything. I think that if you use NERO the dat file name will be AVSEQ01.dat so you would copy this file and paste to your hard drive. Then Rename it to whatever you like as long as you end it with .mpg instead of the .dat ending. Then start NERO and create a new VCD using this new .mpg file and it will now play on you DVD player. Hope this helps.
