i am kinda new to this so bare with me here, i am using nero 126.96.36.199 1st i cant burn at 48x even with high speed cdr's cuz it crashes my system with a time command error after the 3hrs of encoding svcd or vcd and 80% of burning, y is that? 2nd, is it that much better to make svcd rather then vcd? i dont see much difference in the quality when i pop it in my dvd player... or is it the quality of the moviez i am downloading? Thanks a bunch!!
