It sounds like the VCD format might be wrong. Is your PSX card PAL?, if you are in North America, then you should be using the NTSC format, not PAL.(In Xing you can change that) Good Luck!

As I'd been reading this forum for a little while, it seems that the only versions of EZCDC capable of creating a fully compliant VCD are 3.0 b/c/d. Take a while to read, and you'll notice that lots of people are driving nuts because after upgrading to v.3.5 and v.4.0, they've lost the chance to make a fully compliant VCD (of course, almost any grafting will be watchable in the PC, BUT for a true VCD player... that's a very different!)
