Have you tried reading your dvd manual ? Why are you playing cd-r stuff ? That is copied and pirated. buy the original vcds or if you are insisting on pirated vcds, then buy the vcd silvers which are made using the same method as originals using Factory pressing.

hi, no i don't want to play pirated movies, i just want to make my own movies to play. bye

Hm.. does the DVD player have the capability to play audio CD? (the original one?) Besides, if it can play Audio CD it doesn't mean it can play VCD. Maybe best try with all originals first.

As for Jim, who says all CD-R are pirated disc? What about my home video, have I pirated anything because I make my own VCD?

The Sony s560d does not recognize CD-R media, VCD or otherwise, pirated or home-made.:)

Try using any brand of CD-RW media. I have a DVPS530D, and can play any vcd or xvcd using CDRW.

According to the docs, it will. I was thinking of buying one. But, the format used by the PC Burner for recording Music & VCD is not compatable by the the regular DVD or CD Players. I guess U get some Software to burn. Check out for VCD.

Very few DVD players will read a homemade video cd on CD-R media. When I bought mine the Pioneer 525 was about the only one on the market that would do so. I have found that quite a few will read video cd's on a CD-RW disk. It has nothing to do with the color of the disks. I tried them all.

Unfortunately I have the same player and treid to get a straight answer out of a Sony Rep who basically blamed me for not specifically asking if the unit plays CD-R's. My only suggestion is to not reward Sony in the future by purchasing any of their products. I have close to $3000 worth on Sony products and this is the last purchase I will ever make again.

Yes, The sony Dvd-s560d does play home made video CDs. The only thing is... you have to burn it to a CD-RW (Memorex Platinums are what I recommend). The Player has no problem playing the video cds, but it WILL NOT play cd-r. Thats why you have to go with cd-RW. I have the same model number, and the only time i had a problem playing video cds was when i bought a Generic Brand of CD-RW(Smart and Friendly). This player works great, I'm glad I made the choice.. and I think Sony did a great job with it.
