    I to have a Samsung and I found that Vivastar discs from Argos or princo discs work all the time, vivastar are cheap as well.

    CD-RWs should work. Atleast my Pioneer handles them beautifully. Have you tried playing the VCD on a PC CD-ROM drive using eg. PowerDVD?

    funkam: Did you remember to finalize the CD? Otherwise 99% of the players wont recognize it. And you should always burn 4x or slower.

    Maybe your DVD-player just doesn't support VCD then.. There might be a test VideoCD ISO image around somewhere, but I'm not aware of any at the moment.

    It's a CD image that you burn to a CD using your CD burning software's "burn image" feature. The test CD is 100.00% compliant VCD, by burning it and testing it with your DVD player, you can find out if your DVD player supports VCD or not. If it plays, it supports -- if it doesn't play, your player doesn't support VCD.

    No one needs Nero's MPEG plugin. You download the image and select "Burn image" from Nero's menu and simply burn it to your CD, use less than 4x burning.
