    When playing your vcd, is it on the computer or your tv.

    If its the computer, I dunno whats up with it cause I've never seen it but on a tv, it happens when you have a cable or something plugged in aswell

    Actually, no I can't solve that one. It really depends on how well a dvd player can read vcd!!

    Thats why every1 can't wait to see the first divx players!

    Just one last thing. Well three little tips!!!

    1. Try to use good cd-r media. Most cd-rs are relitively cheap these days but b'ware of those that are too cheap!!

    2. Never burn a vcd (or audio cd) faster than 4x. The slower the burn the higher the end quality will be!

    3. Try alternative software! Most people use nero but you can also try cdrwin 5 + or Easy Cd Creator. Each have their own burning methods so one may be better for your stand-alone player!

    Hope ya can get some idea of those!!!

    you read my mind ,discs are not 2 cheap,but here's the question ,when burning(nero)to disc i test and burn at 4x,i burn the first disc and its perfect,i burn the second disc the same way. i play it in the dvd player and yes it says disc error now not to be beaten i burn it again at 8x and you know what it worked !!!!
    what's happening Dela.

    The only guess I could make is that your blank cd-r wasn't multispeed compatible. You'll often get cds that could say 8x and thats all they'll work with!

    still can't see it,if the first disc burns at 4x and playes then the second disc should also play, its the same disc and burned the same way at 4x.
    Will try and burn at 2x see does that make a diff.
    thanks Dela
