A vcd is another form of a MPG, or AVI, which means they will require different codec to view them properly. Go here (http://www.vcdhelp.com/play) for more info on codec and how to play vcds on your system and on your dvd player

what kind of video card do you have? and do you have any other video related problems?

what format are the files in? bin/cue? if so, are you burning them or using an emulator?

well, I don't know of anything that will help you then, unless there is a problem with Nero converting them in the burn process, but this seems unlikely if it is every single one you burn that goes to s@!t. Maybe try to get some of the VCD and SVCD plugins for Nero......

You can also....

Try downloading Daemon tools and see if the VCDs work for you under DVD drive emulation. All you need to do is download Daemon Tools 3.26, install it then right click on the icon in the tray, mount image, and find the cue file for the vcd you wanna watch, then use PowerDVD or whatever to actually play the file. Once you install the virtual drive(s), you may need to switch your DVD player settings to check the new virtual drive.

Draco_blood....I found this fix over at vcdhelp.com. It has worked for some but not everyone...worth a shot.

1. First run regedit and find the branch HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\MCI Extensions

2. Then goto EDIT then NEW then String Value

3. Add a String Value name "dat" (no quote marks) and Value data "MPEGVideo" (again no quote marks)


Or you could convert the .dat to .mpeg using VCDgear or VCDeasy...a little more time involved.

Seems a lot of people have had this ongoing problem. I just stick to burning good old DVD's myself ;)

How Ironic this is the same issues I'm now having on my component Orition dvd player. There is a fix for the green scarchy issue on the link i gave you before as well as the one by Zodiaq (same site), but you gotta kinda hunt aroudn for it. I fixed mine form that site, but i doubt the method I used will work with yours simply becasue I'm using a dvd player and not a software program

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
