Windows XP Compatibility Issue With Games Using Macrovision Safedisc 2.0
The CloneClinic reports of a problem using SafeDisc v2 protected games under WinXP:

We are aware of a potentially serious compatibility issue that is resulting in system instability/blue screen on Windows XP and Windows 2002. Currently, this issue seems to be appearing in some newer game titles. We have confirmed that a particular version of Macrovision's Safedisc 2.0 that ships with many newer game titles is responsible for this compatibility issue.
Microsoft has been working closely with the Macrovision development team to address this issue and a resolution has been accomplished. An updated driver that corrects the issue is currently available for download at

Terapin CD Video Recorder
If you thought that VideoCD was dead because of DVD then you are mistaken as Terapin just released their CD Video Recorder which can transfer your home videos to CD in MPEG-1 VCD format.
It can record any kind of video signal (S-Video or Comp.Video) or stereo audio signal (Analog, Optical or Coaxial) to regular CD-R or CD-RW media in VCD or CDDA format.

It is currently available at Terapins website for US$ 499.00, which is quite expensive, better save-up for a DVD+RW drive when it arrives in a few months!
