    help on copying VCD in FC-3


    1st of all SORRY, as i posted this message on RED-HAT & FEDORA discussion, that was by mistake as i am a NEWBIE to newsgroups

    anyway here is my problem:

    Hi there,



    THIS SMILEY is because i am really very sad as i am not able to watch any of my VCDs.

    i have "Fedora Core 3" as my OS. the only problem i have is it does not copy/play any of my VCDs. I have XINE player installed, it plays all the MPG content i have stored onto my HARD-DISK but it does not play any VCD.

    I had WINDOWS earlier VCD can be copied like this:

    1.) look for AVSEQ01.DAT, then copy it

    2.) paste it to desired location (C:, D: etc.) on hard disk. DONE

    FC-3 does not even mount VCDs, gives I/O error. BUT IT easily copies VIDEOS from a DATA CD ( i have my HTML files and VIDEOS in MPG format on that DATA CD).

    I only want to

    1.) COPY THE .DAT CONTENT onto my HARD-DISK.

    2.) convert them to.mpg so that i can watch them with XINE, and

    3.) BURN them ontp a CD so that it can be played on my VCD player.


    can anybody help me on solving this problem?

    THANKS in advance

    I use vlc to play DVDs that are on a DVD in my DVD player, and also play DVDs ripped to a directory on my hard drive. I've read it will also do the same for replay of VCDs.
