DVD-player is reading VCD as Audio-CD.

I just burned a VCD with Nero 5.5, using the "how to"-page on www.vcdhelp.com, but when I put the VCD in my Philips DVD955 player, it doesn't recognize it as a VCD, but as an Audio-CD. I get no image and no sound. How can I solve this problem?

What you have to do is find out if you made a mistake in the burning process or if the problem is with your DVD player. You might look at www.vcdhelp.com for the DVD compatibility list to see if your DVD player supports CD-R. If it does, try playing your VCD on a PC. You should be able to play it by loading the video file in the MPEGAV directory on the VCD into something like Windows Media Player. If WMP won't play it, go to www.elecard.com and get the Elecard MPEG player and install it and try it to play the VCD. Philips usually has good support for CD-R, but you never know. It can vary from country to country. For example, Pioneer DVD players sold in the USA support CD-R very well but some of the DVD players they sell in Asia don't support CD-R at all.

Hi, your problem must be based in the vcd itself, because i am having same problem with SVCD and VCD in my PC. And I am a seasoned DVD Ripper, so I know. Have never had this problem before in all my yearz. I think that some software is being put out to deter copyright infringe. Not sure about that, but positive that your problem is in the VCD not the DVD player. Take it easy. your friend, Kz~LXoNX
