play VCD on CD-ROM

Does anyone out there know if it is possible to play VCD's from a regular CD-ROM?? If so, what program do I use? Most files are named avseq01.dat. I tried a couple of programs already and even tried copying the file from the CD to my hard drive with a new extension of .mpg (by the way, i'm running win2k pro-sorry . Any information would be EXTREMELY APPRECIATED.

Thank You.

with most media players you can also just open up
This is the movie, and if you open with a half decent player, it'll play it fine. Why use PowerDVE
