Stand-alone DVD player ejects VCD.... Why?

    I have a Pioneer DV-433M stand-alone player.

    For some reason it has stopped playing all VCDs, even the ones it was playing fine previously. When i insert any VCD, it makes loud reading sounds for about a minute then ejects the CD.

    All problems started after I inserted a CD, which I later found out to be an AVI instead of a VCD. Why would that affect the player though?

    Any help would be appreciated as I cannot find a solution on-line anywere. Also my player warranty has run out, haha.

    Thanks.

    Yeh I called tech support and they tell me the most likely problem is that the VCD laser burnt out trying to read the AVI, and as it uses 2 lasers my DVDs still play.

    Im going to have to get it repaired... the quote fee alone is $44, I hope it doesnt end up being too much.

    Funny how all this happened a couple of months after warranty expires.... oh well.
