    Hey guys hope you can help I am trying to burn a VCD. I have successfully converted and avi to VCD format. I am using Easy Cd Creator Platinum und vcd option. I choose the file and add it to layout and everything thing is fine. I burn it and it doesn't work on My dvd player. (my player should play it)
    It sees that it is a VCD and how long it is but it won't play it, it just sits their. I think it has something to do with this, When it first starts burning it tells me that one or more files have been changed since adding to layout. But it says stop or continue at the bottom. Can anyone help me out? Thanks alot

    I've repeated and repeated this too many times:

    -burn 4x or slower, otherwise your VCD is very likely not working correctly with DVD players
    -try various CD brands, DVDs have different type of laser than CD drives have and have problems reading certain CD brands
    -most of the DVD players don't accept CDRWs, only CDRs -- with Sony being one notable exception, most of Sony's players don't recognize CDRs, but ONLY CDRWs.
    -always __CLOSE YOUR CD__ -- with Easy CD there's an option that says specifically something like "Close CD (data can't be added after this)" -- otherwise your CD wont work

    Tim_d: Look at the guide on our article pages for burning VCDs with Nero. You're supposed to end up having a CD with 6 or so folders.
