I burned a VCD

and if I try to read it on my comp, it's properties say it is 2.5 megs big. It won't read without powerdvd or something, huh? Or did I burn it wrong? It took forever to burn.

Go into the CD using windows explorer and search for a file ending in .dat. There should be atleast one (or maybe more) depending on what you burned. If it's there, then the VCD is most likely ok. Try using power vcd instead of power dvd. Also try using windows media player to open it.

look in the mpegav folder, there will be a .dat file and just use windows media player. Check the .dat file to see how big it is. When I checked the size of one of my vcds is say 2.15 megs.
