    I've just started to try burning VCD's with Nero. I can't seem to get any of them to work. My DVD player just spins the disk and then shows "no disc". ANy help would be appreciated

    What kind of DVD player do you have? Is it rated to play VCD's? Do the VCD's play ok on your computer?

    EZCD won't do it for me either. Kinda would be nice to get some of my stuff so I can watch it on a "big" screen!

    might be a daft question , but do you have the MPEG-2/SVCD plugin installed?

    Is your sony rated to play VCD/CDR/CD-RW?

    If they don't play on your computer then there's a solid bet they won't play anywhere else. Can you read the contents of the VCD? If so, go to the 'MPEGAV' folder, copy the ???.dat file to your computer and rename it to ???.mpg. Does that work in any of your media players? If it does, you should have a good VCD. If not, well, you don't, lol. It may be due to the media type too, try a different brand of cdr.

    You shouldn't need that to make a plain old VCD, should you?

    I have it, just haven't installed it
    maybe I'll give it a whack
