Ok I was waiting to see if someone with more knowledge would answer this.

Goldstar/LG - USA: Yes, Others: dunno
FZ-1 - Japan: Yes, Others: No (however I have heard of a limited USA release but I think it's just a pipe dream)
FZ-10 - Japan: Yes, Others: No
Sanyo - I wanna say no?

It was all Japan / S.Korea wasn't it? VCD bombed in europe, but was quite the success in Asia. So I heard.

Thanks guys.

So, no European release of it ? I thought there was one (for the FZ-1 ?).

Yep, VCD was, and is a success in Asia :P

Does anyone try it with its 3DO ? Good quality of video ? PAL/NTSC compatible ?

I have the US Goldstar one and it works with PAL VCDs. In fact I've never had anything not play a PAL VCD.
