    Sometimes it can yes. The recommended burning speed for vcd/svcd is 4x so I don't go higher than that!!!

    Sounds like too fast of a burn to me.
    4x: best write mode for DivX, VCD, SVCD
    8x: safe mode for DivX, VCD, SVCD
    12x and higher: CAUTION mode: movie playback "could" be jerky, audio out of sync.

    saqib,
    I'm just glad you tested 8x speed. Basically this means you home dvd player can't handle VCD's burned at 8x is all. Again, thanks for testing, much appreciated.

    Its funny you asked that because some vcd/svcd, usually those that are downloaded have specifications of NTSC but the movie is PAL and it causes all sorts of trouble on stand alone dvd players!

    I have burned some movies at 32X and they were picture perfect. I have burned some at 12x and they were absolute shit. I guess, maybe, something happens when you convert it that the computer doesn't show but the DVD lens picks up on. I've wasted many a CD-r this way. lol!

    Whenever you use the transcoding process, it's a pretty good idea to burn as slow as you can=4x.(video)

    I know it sounds daft but ensure that you are using cd media that is at least rated the same speed as your cd recorder (24x), it's dead easy to pop a cdr into the recorder and not look at its speed rating before recording!

    If someone had a 32x burner and tried to write at 12x but it didnt write correctly, that says BAD for your burnr which obviously couldnt handle the extra time it takes to burn at 12x than at 32x!! I agree with cd-r media being a very important part in playback!! No point on relying on cheap media for the best results!!
