    It may have been a glitch when you burnt it. Does it happen at the same point on all your fault VCD disks?

    Have you tried another brand of disk? What speed are you burning at? What make of disks are you using at present?

    Try some better disks; look for Sony or Verbatim disks. Also, burn @ 8x.

    I have also been looking around an read somewhere that if you use video leads (red, white and yellow) you remove one of the colours and this sorts the problem but i don't know if this is right or not. I don't use video leads just a normal scart but was thinking of getting some to try it out. Will try some new disks though thanks.
