Refuses to play vcds

I have a liteon 1693s it does not play svcd or vcd in linux or windows. it has the latest firmware. The funny thing is it will rip vcds to hard drive. I was wondering if anyone else has this problem and if they’ve found a fix? They play fine in my older dvd combo drive. It is a LG GMA-4020b that uses older 1x-2x dvd media.

I’ll bump this once but if noone replys please delete
