Mel, It sounds like you have a lot to learn try these websites for help. (look in their forums for help)

Is the DVD player you mention, a 'set-top' player? If it is, I can assure you it wont play discs because it isnt REGION -FREE, it needs 'modifying' to accept any and all discs, whether they are DVD's CD-R, CD-RW, original VCD's etc.

Hope this helps,

That's not quite true - a Playstation 1 needs chipping to be region free before it will play VCD's, but I have a region 2 locked Pioneer 525, and it plays VCD's and SVCD's (made by Nero 5.5) all the time. Do check out the vcdhelper site - it tells you more about your player than the manufacturers let on.

Welcome to the club! I've had similar experiences. What I've found that works well with Nero is:

1. Set the option to enforce the VCD standard

VCD is a very picky format.

2. Do not use the menu option in Nero

3. Experiment with the CD-i option. It will depend on your discplayer, so try both ways.

I've created many coasters with Nero trying out different options and combinations. Hope this helps.
