Spotted your second posting of this question. Did you know posts with zero replies are moved to the top of the forum? This is done something like once every 24 hours. Not sure how many times this is done before the thread is allowed to be buried.

Is this the type of commercial vcd that movies are released on in eastern countries? The reason for no responses may be that most of the members here don't own a vcd of that type.

I cannot be any real help either but maybe there is something in this link you can use?
