    HI, i recently made a vcd and put it in my dvd player and it did not work; said there was some error or somethin. In the computer i can go to my dvd player and pick out the dat file and it will play on there, so did i do something wrong or does my dvd player just not play em? its a mitsubishi 4000 or somewhere around there.

    check for your drive on vcdhelp.com-they have a database-you might need to use specific media, or a specific format (or both); you might be SOL. Hopefully it is not the latter...

    Also, check your DVD player's manual. A lot of them (especially older ones) won't play CD-R or CD-RW discs at all.

    If it doesn't say anything about CDR, it doesn't mean anything, and you must search the web for user reports about CDR compatibility of DVD drives.
    If it says it can't read CDRs, then it won't read CDR VCDs.

    But then again, it might :) Some CDRs, some specific brands, are known to play even in players that only accept CDRWs or pressed CDs -- but I can't name any, because you just need to try them all out and see which one works.

    Hi,
    I've recently attempted to copy an .avi file onto a cd and found that it didn't play on my vcd player (surprise! surprise!). Can anyone point me in the right direction? What software do i need in order to to be able to convert .avi files into vcd format?

    Thanks

    abhik: Look at out article section, there's a guide for conversion. Basically ou just need to have TMPGEnc and that's it.
