correct NERO VCD Template for creating VCD's : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I am unable to view the VCD i created using NERO in my sony DVD player which has the capability of reading the CD-R's. Can anybody please provide me the proper NERO VCD template for creating the VCD's so that i can view the VCD in the DVD player.

Thanks in advance.

I have tried for months to create a valid vcd using NERO, but my Sony will not accept them. I think that Nero burns VCD-roms and not stand-alone VCDs. So, you may need to read more about the VCD architecture and CDI architecture. Good luck

I had the same problem and I couldn't find any CD-R to work on my sony DVD player. Solution: Use CD-RW they work fine.

First thing, I would make sure your DVD is capable of playing VCD's because alot of them are not. Secondly make sure that you encode them as Video cd's and not SVCD's because this won't work on alot of dvd players. Thirdly make sure that the format for the movie or VCD your creating is correct NTSC or PAL

Some of the Sony DVD players will play VCDs only if they have been burned onto CD-RW media. I have a Sony 330 which I purchased about 2 years ago, and it plays only CD-RW CD-Rs. Now I am looking to buy a JVC DVD player that is probably the most friendly DVD unit when playing VCDs and SVCDs.

Sony can only accept sony brand CD-R discs in their DVD players for VCD. I have a generic DVD Player and I used nero for the VCD and it worked fine.

I had the same problem, I was using fiber optic sound out cables on my DVD player. I added an RCA sound cable, and I got the sound out of my vcd, but now the audio is out of sync.

Burn at the slowest speed possible, that fixed my problems.
