With my old Pentium 3 computer I could take the movie images from RCT3 and use Windows Movie Maker to put together the clips into a movie, add music and titles and transistions and create a movie file .wmv on my hard drive. It took forever but it worked. Then I used Roxio 6 DVD builder and created and burned a VCD that plays just like any DVD on my DVD player.
The new Pentium 4 system also has the same two programs. They both work differently now. But they both work. And the movie file plays fine on the computer on Windows Media Player. But when I put the completed VCD in the DVD player, it won't play the visuals, only the music. The picture stays either on the last frame of the opener from Roxio, or my own opener, or displays a frame from the menu. The music is playing, the DVD player shows VCD on the display window but no movie plays.
I checked an old VCD I made with the old system and it plays fine, so it isn't the DVD player. I put both discs in the computer and checked the contents of both discs and all the folders and files are the same. The old ones play fine, the new ones don't. And both version of Roxio are 6. Can anyone explain what I am doing wrong here. I don't get it.
