Question about Samsung HT-X40 System
My HT-X40 doesn't play VCDs. Should it? I thought is should.
Just curious... did you try what was mentioned previously? If you are will to make the effort here is another possible step in troubleshooting. Determine if you have available another player that supports VCDs (brand doesn't matter) at a friend's or family's house - see if you can get the VCD to play there. This may help determine if it is the disc or the player. Otherwise contact Samsung. Be prepared to discover options for return or trade on the unit. I know personally I have had mixed results with VCDs and just plain inexpensive DVD player for that matter too.
I'm at a loss for any other suggestions at this point. Post back if anything is determined.

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.
