Idea: Star Wars VCD

 (Edited)

Sorry if this has been discussed already but what options are there for people who’s DVD players don’t play DVD-R’s? I would love to by TR47’s set, but I don’t care much for watching it on my computer the whole time. Anyone doing a VCD set? I know it will be lesser quality, but they will be comparable to VHS and will not degrade over time.

Thanks.

I'm not sure that VCD would work any better for you, as they'll likely be cd-r's. Every player I've seen that doesn't read DVDr won't read cd-r either, but yours may be the exception. If you look around on ebay you may be able to find the original LOOK! bootlegs. They're not as high quality as the Anamorphic or TR47, but they're real pressed DVDs and they play in normal DVD players.

Just some food for thought.

Mine plays VCDs, but not DVD-R's. It makes me cry.

Are the LOOK! bootlegs original cuts? And what do the covers look like and such so I can ID them on eBay?

I think it's time to buy a new DVD player.. they can be had cheaply these days.

I've also got an old DVD player that plays VCDs, but not burned ones. Nor will it play DVDr or CD-R music. TR47 is right though, I replaced that with a new phillips last year for about $100 US.

I don't personally have the LOOK! bootlegs, but Rikter started an excellent thread on the bootlegs here:

This should help you tell all the different releases apart.
