You Say "With my yamaha burner, I also record the VCDs in Audio Master mode if I can, which I'm not sure, but should help in longetivity of the VCD itself."
You are only supposed to use Audio Master for what is meant for and that is for Audio Tracks !!!
In case you can't find it This is what Yamaha have to say :-
Advanced Audio Master quality recording
This feature offers the best sound quality for home-burned music CDs - which are almost comparable with Audio Master CDs!
"The benchmark is the original" is the Audio Master concept. Thanks to this function, any disturbances in the audio-digital data flow, so-called jitter, are reduced considerably in order to achieve the best possible sound quality of audio tracks on CD-R disks. This results in a distinctly audible clarity in the high and medium sound range, full bass reproduction and convincing spatial presentation, thus permitting reproduction which is true to the original.
When the CRW-F1 series is in Audio Master mode, longer pits and lands compared to normal audio mode are written at speeds of up to 8x resulting in the following storage capacities of CD blanks: 650 MB - 63 mins., 700 MB - 68 mins. and 870 MB - 79 mins.
New Hardware & Software isn't released it's allowed to escape !!!
