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.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
