This may just be a setting on my dvd player, but just in case: I burn avi's and mpegs to CD from my computer. I make them VCD's and SVCD's with Nero 6.0. Everything always goes ok on the computer. It burns correctly each time. BUT, sometimes when I put the cd into my dvd player (which supports vcd and svcd) it just shows the first scene of the video and just freezes there. Its small and in the center of the screen. Kinda like im supposed to "select" it or something. If i have 2 files on the cd, it shows the first frame of both files on the screen. Again, like im supposed to select one. I press the play button and the PLAY light comes on but no time passes and nothing happens on my screen. I have the JVC 7-disc carousel. Oh, and about 25% of the time when I put the disc in, it just starts playing...go figure. anyone have any idea why i cant play these sometimes? Is it something within my player i need to figure out, or maybe the way im burning them? ANy help would be appreciated...thank you!
