Where can I find this file Scsi1hlp.vxd to play SVCD on my PC?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Tomo mentioned a fix for playing the new SVCD format on a PC. Dated June 7, 1999.

"Just lately, I found that if I put Scsi1hlp.vxd file in folder C:\windows\system\iosubsys\ and then do a reboot, I will be able to play most .dat files from a vcd placed in a rom drive. I use Xing 3.30 in Windows 98."

Where is this file?

Use PowerDVD($45.00 for the download) to open the MPEG2 file and view it on your PC.

Bong, this "could be a fix for your problem" is supposed to enable you to play VCD type .dat files only - not SVCD files. I'll email you a copy of Scsi1hlp.vxd when I've learn how to do it. This file could be a Windows 95 or 98, Adaptec Easy CD or a Xing 3.30 file. It resided in my PC untill I was advised by a NET article to remove it if I were to use NERO burning program without troubles. However, when I removed the file, all my VDC players will refuse to play VCD .dat files, unless I've put this file back. Can anyone out there explain what this file Scsi1hlp.vxd does?

Do have a read of the article that states "You need SCSI1HLP.VXD if you want to play Video CDs from an IDE device". To get there is by surfing to "http://www.surfsolutions.com/cdrinfo/", then select subject "TIPS", then select topic "Integration between CDR software" and then read the part on "Nero". Funny thing is my old computer Intel 133 & Pentium 166 has not got this file and yet plays Video CDs. You should seek the help the author of the above statement.
