    I have a "type 2" APEX AD-500 no-letter DVD Player (draw Below, C-CUBE precessor, does NOT have the SLOW/STEP buttons on the remote). Notwithstanding the users manual, I have been unable to play any VCD's burned onto CD-R's. I've been reading mixed reports about whether my version of the AD-500 will play them. Doeds anyone out there know for sure? If the answer is yes, are there any specific issues I should be aware of?

    Thx.

    All reports on the player say it supports VCD. As far as specific issues, I have a AD-660 and I don't use it anymore. The player works, but on a lot of disk the picture suffers bad degradation and pixilization when playing VCD's and SVCD's. I have found a far better solution is to use a PC that has TV out on it's video card. Add in a TV tuner to the box and a good remote control system and you get a multiformat playing tivo system to boot.

    I started with mpeg files, and I've tried both Roxio and Nero.
