Someone else already confirmed that our DVD players play SVCDs. I tried a regular VCD (Video Compact Disc) last night and it worked flawlessly.

Plain ole 700MB cd-r's burned with an old 8x burner.

VCD is just another format of video+sound. I think it was popularized in Asia.

The advantage is that you have the option of playing another type of media other than DVD. The quality isn't near what you get with DVD but I guess it's the same reason why we have a casette player in our car still.

For more info on these formats check out DVDRHELP.COM (http://www.dvdrhelp.com)

Does this mean the G35C's Nav system could also play these?

No... They are talking about the DVD entertainment center in the back of the FX

You can burn vcd's on to normal cds, you dont even need a dvdr.

Just use a program such as nero, simple burn, etc. I prefer nero.

I can recommend Nero also, though I haven't tried it for DVDs yet, I have burned and backed-up all kinds of CDs with it. Don't know if it's available for the Mac or not.
