I’d been using a Terapin brand VCD recorder up to now, and have a lot of VCDs made on it. These play fine in my Apex DVD player.
Now, I’ve found that my 5005 doesn’t seem able to play them. It recognizes them as VCD 1.1, but just keeps spinning the disc and not playing it. I can hear the movement inside, but no playback. Also, when it’s doing this, it seems “stuck”, since I can’t even stop it, open the drawer, or shut the machine down.
The only thing that works is using the remote’s “power” button to shut things down.
The other buttons on the remote don’t work, and the buttons on the body of the machine don’t work.
Once the remote has cut the power, I can turn it back on and immeditely hit “open” and get the drawer to open.
This has happened to every one of the Terapin-recorded VCDs I’ve tried in the machine.
Anyone else had anything like this happen?
I’ve yet to try using the 5005 to RECORD a VCD, so I don’t know how it’d react to one of its own.
