VCD to mpg

I have a couple of things that I have burnt onto a VCD. I have deleted the mpg files off of my computer a while ago, so I was wondering if there was any way to convert the VCD back to mpg file format.

VCD files are actually mpg files.

search through the cd and there should be some large .DAT files (one for each track), copy them to your hard drive and rename them .mpg

to get back your .mpg from an already burnt vcd, install vcdimager :
and then use vcdxrip included in vcdimager, vcdxrip [OPTION...] ... will extract all mpg files contained on the vcd for you
