I just bought a heap of vcds and only one works!!

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I just bought 6 vcds from a guy off the internet and only one works! My dvd player is a Phillips DVD 711 and it says it plays video cds and I know it plays CD R/RW. The vcds are on CD-R 80 High Density Samsung cd and I don't know what's wrong with them. When I put them in my computer there are 5 folders which are called CDI, EXT, MPEGAV, SEGMENT and VCD. In the CDI folder there is a file called CDI_VCD and it is a CFG file. When I try to play the vcds in Windows Media Player it says there is no disc in drive. I emailed the guy back and told him but he said he checked them before he sent them and they all worked fine! Please help me because I dont know whats wrong and Im really anxious to see them! Thanks!

In Windows Media Player, go to the MPEGAV folder, change the "Files of type" to All Files. Locate the Avseq01.dat (or similar) and double-click it to play the video.

use any other media program like power dvd xp to play those vcds coz they inclued different types of vcd that media player doesnt support.
