:) Did you specify VCD when burning it? Or did you burn it as data?

Maybe the guides and tutorials on this (http://www.dvdrhelp.com) site may help.There is a lot than can go wrong with using tmpgenc.Have a look through and ensure you followed all the steps EXACTLY and you should be ok.
The way I normally make VCD's is to download the SVCD version of a movie and convert it using VCDgear.It depends on your connection speed as to wether this is feasible though I suppose. :)

you probably already did this......but make sure that your dvd player is capable of playing vcds. some older models of dvd players simply can't play vcds.

:huh: Use NERO 5.5.9 or 10 makes VCDs without any effort. :)
