Problem playing VCD on a DVD player : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Someone burned a VCD for me. I can play it on my laptop, but not on my home DVD player (Sony DVP-NS315 actually supposed to play VCDs). I get the following message "no soundtrack found" (there is actually no soundtrack). Can someone help? Thanks.

Maybe whoever burnt it for you didn't use a real burner. You may have a cd with only one track in that case, so it's unplayable.

You can burn a real vcd for yourself by using Nero. Just copy the movie file to your PC and burn with Nero or some other prg.

Some DVD players are not ment to play VCD's. You must have a DVD player that says on the front pannel somewhere "VCD" otherwise it will not play.
