curiousity satisfied ! .
the commodore bilboard CD is a plain ISO9660 formatted CD  ~ what happens
is that your player must be treating as a picture CD  , not as a true VCD
which has a totaly diferent layout,
i've just  put it into my portable VCD walkman and it offered me only the
MP3 files for playing .

we've got a digital TV box  and i've got my 1702 set up as 2nd  screen for
it  ~ so my wife can watch ordinary stations & i can watch the digital at
same time .

U.S.A ? ~ oh yes ~ the bit tween canada & mexico !.

i've been tryng to promote a similar concept but with a fully fledged VCD ~
but it's an uphill struggle as the concept of Video CD to put into a DVD
player seems to have somewhat escaped some people here in the UK.
this coming one will be the 3rd Commodore VCD i've created .
