what kind of cd's works best

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I've tried making Vcd's and play them on my DVD player without much success. I've used the ACER, TDK, and Memorex CDR's, but it won't work. What worked was the TDK CDRW. Which CDR's are best for making VCD's.

if you have to resort to CDRW, then the likelihood your DVD player will only play CDRW material. If you want you can try out the Silver on Silver type CD-R and see if the relective surface on this type will increase the chance for your DVD player to play it. BTW what brand is your DVD player? If it's Sony, then that may be it.

Typically CD-RW are much more compatible with stand alone VCD/DVD players. Check out the link below to see the capabilities of your player;


I've stayed away from Memorex - they can't even be relied on for making an audio cd b/c they are not always compatible for car stereos. Used verbatim, sony, samsung silvers.

You are probably going to need all RWs.

As far as memorex, I have heard a lot of negative things about them. I have NO PROBLEM using memorex from the 50 count spindles. In fact, I have had better luck with those than just about any other media. I don't know about the memorex in the 5 or 10 counts...but from the spindle, they are great IMO.
