    Rolando,
    I just had my son pop a VCD into our DVL-91 and sure enough, it plays. Damn, that thing plays anything [​IMG].

    I believe the original DVD standard for players required that they be able to play VCD's as well as music CD's. In that case, your DVL-90 should play VCD's since it plays DVD's.

    I've got a good one. John are you sure it played a VCD? Just got a reply from Pioneer's online help and, well... here it is:

    "The only major difference is DVL-90 is a first generation DVD laser disc player

    manufactured in 1996, and DVL-91 was manufactured in 1998, and neither one will

    play VCDs..."

    what gives?

    The 909 plays VCDs, the 700 doesn't though.
