Cheap VCD Player?

Hi All,

Does anyone have a link, where I can purchase a releatively cheap (under $150 USD) VCD Player? Or a DVD Player that plays back VCDs? I have a JVC DVD Player, but it does not play any CDR-RW at all.

Thanks in advance!

Happy New year!

I'm sure you can find a DVD player for less than this that will do VCD, but here's a portable VCD only player for $99... but I think you can usually do better on ebay...

It's actually cheaper to buy a DVD player that plays DVD than a standalone VCD only player most of the time. Most of the cheap Chinese players in the under $100 category play VCD's very well and can be found for as low as $49.

Apex will play anything you throw at it even most of them play mp3's.. you can get those for like 60 bucks at circuit cities. Had mine for almost 2 years and had 0 problems with it...

It's not that your JVC doesn't play VCD's, it's that it doesn't play any recorded CD or VCD.

Get an Apex DVD player in Walmart or something and it will play everything (except DVD Audio and SACD).
