I just found out that Easy CD Creator Platinum will create VCDs and that my Panasonic CV-51 will play them. (Actually I hadn't bother to check until recently.) Is an AVI file bigger than an MPEG file? I want to try to burn one VCD to see it will work but I don't feel like splitting the file onto 2 VCDs. Thank you.

I know enuff to be dangerous. :tongue:

No, you can't just put the AVI file onto VCDs. The video file on VCD must be in MPEG 1 format. Hence you need to convert the AVI to MPG first and then burn it to a VCD. Some burning software (eg. Nero) can do the conversion for you, but I think the picture quality they produce is not good. I recommend a conversion software called TMPGenc which can be downloaded freely from this link:

This link shows you how to use TMPGenc:
