Yes, according to Samsug's website the unit is supposed to support VCDs. I have seen mixed results when working with VCDs. I don't really have a solution, rather some suggestions on what to check (some may be obvious)... 1) try different VCDs in the player to make sure it is not just tone disc. 2) Again from mixed results, some suggest trying different types of disc CD-R vs. CD+R. 3) Sometimes copies of VCDs may be an issue - try the original. 4) getting a little technical here... make sure you have the latest firmware for the player. You can get upgrade instructions and troubleshooting help at Samsung
Hope this helps. I know it can be frustrating at times.
