I have tried to understand your problem here.

My feeling is that you have a DVD player that is compatible with VCD's, however you may not have a CD-R compatible player. Not all players play CD-R's which is the usual format for 'copied' films.

I'd check your DVD player to make sure it can play them, or maybe experiment with different brands of CD-R media to see which one you can play with.

I know this cause I've been through it myself. I'm going to be buying a Bush 2004 DVD player, as these tend to play everything you throw at them.

Hope this helps.

The Bush 2004 will play anything. CDR, CDRW, DVDR, MP3 VCD1.0, VCD2.0 Get one of theses playes they will also play lesser quality disks.

hi i think the problemis different. i too have a similar problem. one may be that the format of storage is vcd1.0 and the player is vcd2.0.. please someone help me and let me know if there is a software which converts VCD1.0 to VCD 2.0

My brother has a Bush 2004/B DVD and its a load of crap. You can play copied DVDs and listen to MP3s but VCDs or anything else forget it. I got a Cyberhome CH DVD 400. Size is a bit smaller than the old PlayStation (doest have a clock on it though. It plays everything i put in it. I paid just under 50 from WH Smiths. I didnt even have to mess with it to make it play copies it was all done. Oh and if any one knows how to play VCDs on the Bush 2004/B I would like to hear it.
