MPEG creation : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread


I have a CD Writer and would like to know that if I copy a *.mpg file from my PC (thru drag and drop) on to a CD-R disk can I play it on my DVD player as it is. I have an Adaptec CD creator version 3.5b, but it does not give me any option to burn a video cd. Please advise. Thankyou.

The answer s no. You have the version of adaptec that comes with the burner. it does not include video cd. The full verson can be bought for around $60.00

You also have to make sure your DVD player supports VCD's and CD-R and/or CD-RW media
