alba45 will play vcd1.1
I used vcdeasy to edit mpg1 file and saved as toc file
then burned image with nero 5.5 to a cdrw on data setting with finalise not set.
picture quality is not the best I have seen!
hope this will be of help.

any vcd hacks for ALBA45 dvd player??????????

PostRegion code hack posted by jed, December 13 2003:

I found the hack for the alba 45 also works on the alba dvd50blk bought from tesco for 39..99 the hack is as follow's open
then press :3
1 for region 1
then shut the draw hey presto it's multi region well at least it play's A NIGHTS TALE which is impressive as it is a RCE disc as well.
I have also found that if you use an R1 disc again it may not play it.
if this occur's turn it off then on again it seems to play them again with no problem's

the hack above for the ALBA 50blk does work but if u choose 0 instead of 1(region) then it can play all discs all the time. Just tested on Finding Nemo(r1) and pirates of the carribean (r2)

play dvd movies

VCD on the Alba dvd45. The chipset will play vcd but some strange engineering prevents this on this particular model. You can fool the software. Play a standard mp3 music cd for a minute or so and then swop the cd for a vcd movie. Hey presto it plays.

For Ian (09/12/03) re: Black and White picture.
Most often it's just that only one scart input into your TV will handle full RGB scart, the other is component video. Try switching the scart from the DVD to a different scart input on the TV - it's worked for me.

hi i have just bought an alba dvd45 from tesco 29.99, i am trying to find a hack to make it multi-regional, i tried the ones on there but they dont work, also i think its a newer model as the picture of the one they sell in argos is different to the one i have, any hacks??

Just bought DVD45 from Argos for £29.99. Plays region 1 and 2 straight out of the box. NO HACK REQUOIRED. What a bargain.
