    VLC works fine with VCD. I have it on my macbook. You just have to specify the drive before playing. Are you sure your VCD isn't damaged or dirty?

    how about the condition of your drive? can it read other DVD's/CD's?

    i gotta say, you're problem is a unique one, indeed..

    i think i've seen one thread here that has a similar problem that selectively reads different type of media (e.g. works on data CDs and VCDs but not DVDs) and he has to get it fixed.

    Have you tried any other VCD? I assume you only used/tested it for one.

    the drive is working fine, can read other disk vcd, dvds

    its the software that reports problems so... i guess its the software that has problems...
    vlc reports error, apple dvd reports unsuported disk content...

    thats why am searching for vcd player softwares ... oh well... thanks for inputs

    I just tried a VCD with VLC and it works fine, Now what File are you trying to open with VLC? The Files that you should open with VLC is in the /MPEGAV directory, it should have a name like AVSEQ01.DAT, AVSEQ02.DAT...

    Maybe it's the disk itself that has problems. Have you tried reading it on another computer?

    it probably is your VCD that has problems. both VLC and Apple DVD reports some problems. Since you've tried VLC on other VCDs then the software doesn't have problems. It's the VCD - since other VCDs work.

    I doubt there is some problem with the vcd itself since it played well on a desktop pc.

    I have tried a vcd player software that should be purchased and the vcd played but only for a limited time since it should be purchased (forgot the name of the player)

    therefore.... something might be wrong with apples dvd and vcl player

    thanks for the input guys i'll keep searching for a vcd player (free of course)
