    Are you able to play ANY svcds on your player? vcdhelp.com has a few test svcd images:

    Maybe worth a test if this is your 1st svcd.

    I'm assuming the picture rolls vertically? Perhaps you created the wrong format (ntsc/pal) for your deck?

    I've never seen an svcd picture roll... anyone?

    well when i tried burning it in a different format (PAL instead of NTSC), the whole thing seems to "roll" unlike when i burned it as NTSC, the menu was fine, but when u played the movie, it would roll. well i did a temp fix, i re-encoded with ulead software to "svcd compliance" and it works now, but i lost some quality and had to chop off the end because it was about 760 megs long which obviously would not fit on a reg cd-r. thanks for your help anyways!

    it could be that the original mpeg was in the 'wrong' format. ntsc uses 29.97 frames/sec and pal uses 25.
