You did not mention the error you get when you try to play VCDs. However
assuming that you face the same problem that I had faced too, when you try
to play a VCD, you come to the disc selection menu. After selecting VCD, at
the bottom you will find a text mentioning your cd drive. It has an hdx part
in it. change that hdx to your actual drive letter. Then play.
