I dont know where to get it in your country, but as reference, in Indonesia you can find easily anyone who sell the card and plug it in your CD/LD player for you at your home.

The whole price it around 180.000 rupiah (less than 30 USD), just "call, wait 30 minutes and play the movie".

Before you try that idea by your self, I have a little technical information. Not all player can be modified to play VCD. If you want to make sure, there is a simple tips, Play VCD on your CD or LD player, and watch the counter.

Is the counter running ??? If it is running, there is a posibility to upgrade, but if the counter not running, be carefull, you may face the problem .....

You can do the same tips to make sure is your player can read CDR or not ! Try the VCD that burned on CDR.....

AAAArman, is there any way for us in America to buy those cards over the internet from Indonesia.

Please e-mail me or post your message so others will know.
