Can't play VCD on Toshiba laptop?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread
i use a toshiba satellite 4070cdt laptop (366mhz celeron, win98, cd-rom drive etc.). tried various pieces of software, but none of them will play vcds - some say something about a "device error". tried reinstalling windows media player with no result. checked the teac website, but apparently the cd-rom drive (cd-224e) can read vcds.
what am i missing? can laptops not play vcds?
thanks for any help,

there is some file that needs to be on your system (windows\system dir) to read a vcd. u can get it from www.adaptec.com i think its named scsihlp.vxd or something similar.
