    I just tried today to play a SVCD disc and MPEG-2 file on a Windows XP SP2 machine for the first time and after installing an MPEG-2 codec all I get when I try to play is a black screen with the drive clicking away. If I try in Windows Media Player 10 I see "connecting" at the bottom and it just hangs for a very long time. Has anybody else had this problem and is there a fix other than reverting back to SP1?

    I don't have XP but if you read in WMP help it says that maybe you need some extra stuff installed on your computer. I haven't understood which stuff it is, since I don't watch the movies on my PC, but probably your MPEG-2 codecs aren't enough.
    To keep things simple (and stupid), why don't you use a CD-RW to watch the SVCD on your DVD player?

    Unfortunately, that doesn't solve the problem. My PC is my DVD player. I did find that I can play them with Power DVD but not with any other media player. Ultimately, I would like the ATI media player that comes with the All-In-Wonder card to play them due to the remote control features.

    Same problem Windows XP Media player 10 will not play SVCD. Does play with Roxio Creator 7 player which burnt the SVCD. Gave copy to a neighbour who made it work by downloading a codec? from www.skynet4ever.tk, but did not work on my Sony RX306, picture horizontally squashed, which changing setting put right, but stuttering sound.
