VCDs won't burn
hey, what's a good *FREE* program to burn VCDs with. No, not illegally free. I'm using VCDeasy and It doesn't recognize my drive.

Like the A-10...
I use Nero. You can get a free demo of it at www.ahead.de . It will burn VCDs.

Hmmmm There is also a file type .vcd that is used by Farstone's Virtual Drive that will rip the contents of a data CD into a file that can be stored on your hard drive and be emulated as a CD to be shared over a network.
It was one of my favorite shareware programs in it's day, but now rather expensive due to it's killer application in schools.
Do Video CDs use the vcd file extension too?

Actually the .vcd files are only info and data files. The MPEG itself is the AVSEQ01.DAT file.
Its a regular MPEG-1 file but restricted to size and video standard(PAL or NTSC), framerate and bitrate.
See technical info: http://www.vcdhelp.com/vcd.htm
If you load the AVSEQ01.DAT file in mediaplayer you can play the VCD without the need of a VCD (DVD) software player.
VCD has similair quality as VHS. But got advantage of better preservation and fast skipping to a scene.

In case you're making the vcds yourself, use svcd format, it provides far better av-quality.
The two most popular cdburning softwares support vcd format.
And nero for sure supports svcd.

That is the coolest.... I'm supposed to be getting a 3dfx Voodoo TV Tuner Capture card soon and I would love to get that to work with my DVD player.
