Win98 VCD Problem : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread


I have a problem with some VCD's not playing in Win98, I use several different players but for some unknown reason they won't play. The curious thing is the very same VCD"s work on a Win95 machine. Any solutions? Is this common? If it will help the VCD's are Something about Mary and Saving Private Ryan. Also most other VCD"s work on my PC.

Pirated VCDs sometimes (often?) have strange problems -- they'll play on one machine but not another, probably because of minor deviations from the VCD standard. I suspect it's that kind of problem.
