Unhappy Unable to Copy VCD's


Hi,
I ahave Red Hat 9 , PIII 800 system. When I try to copy the .dat VCD files to hard disk I get an "IO Error". Both in KDE and Gnome. I tried root logging also. It also tried using my Dvd drive nad Cd drive.
Still no use. But i can play the VCD using mplayer!!!

I tried using MEncoder also as stated by a reply but MEncoder gives me a reply that the .Dat file is of "unknown file format". But I copied the .DAT file from m windows(which i also have) and the mounted the fat32 drive and used MEncoder. This time I got an .AVI file.

Help me. AGAIN !!!

Would it be possible to post that thread with the link corrected? From your
instructions here I don't quite understand. It looks as if you're copying only
one track at a time.

Thanks

Thank you very much, the link now works and I will read your thread. I live in China,
and we have very many VCD's. My daughter has some VCD's that we got from the US,
and we wouldn't be able to get another copy, so I like to keep a backup. Since I am not
using Windoze anymore, I need to burn VCD's in Linux.
