Jerky VCD playback using Pioneer DV636Dgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread
I use a Pioneer dv636d and have just recently been given three VCD's my friend bought me in Malaysia. Unfortunately, the VCD's are all playing very unusually they play for a few seconds, freeze, then play for a few seconds, then freeze etc...
I have been told that the same VCD's have been played on another machine (unknown) successfully.
I hope someone is able to help and it's just a setup problem.

I found on the net this same problem. The answer given was:
---- Pioneer DV-636 Disc: ALL Video CD's (Region N/A) Problem: The player plays approx. 6 seconds and stops - then another 6 seconds, etc... same for original & cdr/rw vcd's. Solution: Use Cyrus CDR's ---
The only problem is that I carn't find Cyrus CDR's in the uk. Anyone know what other CDR/CDRW's work? Like u, its driving me round the bend.

Early DV-636D are faulty, so if yours does not play VCD's, then take it back and get a newer shipped version. The older ones can be fixed, since I got a mail off someone who had theirs fixed.
Basically, their is a bug/problem with early DV-636D's which HAS been fixed in latter shipped versions.
Good luck to everyone, since this is a fantastic DVD player.

Does anyone know where I can get mine modified in the UK?
