Is burning vcd THIS hard...

    ...or am I just an idiot?

    I have burned the same VCD about 6 times, using NERO. Result: 6 Coasters. The AVI's work on my computer, but NERO is supposed to convert them to MPEG and burn them, right? It ACTS like it is doing just that...and takes hours in the process. Only problem, None of them work.

    I bought a VCD card for my old playststion 1...and the screen just comes up blank. When I put the same CD in the computer...the files are ON it.

    What could I not have thought of? Does NERO simply suck? Is there some method to making these VCD's work on the PS1? Am I just cursed?

    Any and all help would be EXTREMELY appreciated!

    Generally it is a very bad idea to use Nero to encode a (s)vcd use another program such as tmpeg or rempeg(found on this site) and burn with nero. The encoding will take some time but it will be of a higher quality than anything Nero produces.

    OK, thanks. I will get the other software. Now, I will convert to MPEG using the software you suggested. Then what? Just copy it directly to the disk? Do I need to put anything else on the desk to tell the Playstation to play the video? Or is just a straight copy enough...and the machine will know what to do?
