    Download TMPGEnc here http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/video_encoders/tmpgenc.cfm

    use its wizard to create vcd. when you see a box that says other settings click it and change motion search precision to Highest Quality!!

    You can only fit 80mins of standard vcd on a disk, if you need more and don't care about quality loss then I would be glad to help with that too!

    An avi or mpeg would be ok for TMPGEnc. TMPGEnc is not complicated at all, just follow the wizard at startup and it will encode a movie for you into vcd easily!.

    With vcd you wont be using 7 or 8 discs it would be 2 at the most! Each cd can hold 80mins. TMPGEnc is also able to split the files for this purpose (I'll explain how if you need it!). Also, you said that your audio and video don't match (not in sync!), you said it was on vcd that it didn't. Did you useTMPGEnc to create that vcd? and if you did, what were those settings you changed?

    We're nearly there trust me

    TMPGEnc must have a compatibility issue with your file! No worrys, there is plenty more software to try. For instance try Mpeg2vcd (kazaa its freeware n e way!) or Panasonic Mpeg-1 Encoder (has to be purchased for full use!).

    You can also try alternatives like VirtualDUB frameserving to TMPGEnc (theres a lot of info on it on this site!).
