    SVCD skips and freezes towards the end of the disk getting big digital squares in the picture. I've tried reading several different forum post, but don't seem to find any clear answers (that could just be me I'm a newb). I've tried burning with NERO and ALCOHOL 120 at fast and slow burning speeds, 700M 80 min CD-R's (2 different brands), all get me the same result. The first 40 mins of the SVCD play just fine then without fail the last portion of the video goes haywire.

    I appreciate any help. If this is described somewhere I missed, could you please point me in the right direction.

    Thanks

    How big is the .MPG? Maybe more than 802 MB. Alas, only 40' of a SVCD movie (MPEG-2 .MPG) are less big than that.
    Then, maybe, the application you use to make the SVCD 'dectected' the movie was larger that 802 MB and stopped the movie inside the CD before the SVCD image exceeds 802 MB.
    Did you apply the spilt method posted on my "100% working method" thread?

    I did apply the split method, and in fact it's happend now with several different attempts with different files, none of them were over 802M. It's driving me crazy. I'm wondering if it's a memeory buffer issue with my computer??? could that cause this behavior?? argh!

    No, it cannot be a buffer problem, since both 2 MPEGs are correct, isn't it? If you listen to the movie on your PC are they correct? If not, it's TMPGenc a bug in the conversion Input movie --> MPEG-2 of the SVCD.
    Therefore, I assume you have 2 correct (no audio problem) MPEGs less than 802 MB large and you're writing them into a 80' min CD (360,000 sectors) , and since on the .CUE you have written MODE2/2352 the max size of the .BIN 360,000*2336, that is 846,720,000 bytes. A BIN is made from a MPG which is about 10,600 bytes smaller than that (The largest .MPG that can fit into a 80' CD is about 836,000,000 bytes large).
    Really, this is a problem which drives me craziy, too.
    Just a last attempt: if you convert back D:\MPEG2\AVSEQ01.MPG to a MPEG-2 on yout PC and, wich TMPGenc + M2V plugin, into a MPEG-1, does the output file has the same audio problems?
    Finally: why don't you just make a VCD instad of a SVCD? It's much simpler dealing with MPEG-1 files than MPEG-2 files.

    Your gonna laugh...

    I finally got so fed up that I opened the drive up looked for smoke or something just as ridiculas, blew out whatever dust was in there, and now the *!@#$!! thing is working just fine.

    Thanks so much for your help. I apologize for the wild goose chase.
