I can't seem to be able to produce a VCD/SVCD from an AVI file, using DVD2SVCD/TPMG/CDRWIN, that will load in either my CDRW/DVD drive or any of my standalone DVD players.
The latter is hardly surprising as I now don't think that the standalone devices support VCD/SVCD (XBox, PS2 and Hitachi DV-P305E) and I can't produce the required DVD format from my PC drive (Samsung SM-332B) so that they will read the VCD/SVCD disks.
However, why don't these disks work in the drive which created them? I am using Imation 700MB CD-R disks which, following an apparently succesful conversion using DVD2SVCD etc, don't even show any files upon inspection in Windows Explorer.
I have checked all of the settings for the conversion programs on: http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/mpg/dvd2svcd-avi.htm
I am using Windows XP with Real or Windows Media Players.
Any suggestions would be most welcome.
