    Post It works for me thru vcdxrip command and cdfs packages

    It works for me thru vcdxrip command and cdfs packages
    1)1st install vcdimager packages from d distro cd/dvd or
    download from d internet (search thru
    rpm -ivh vcdimager<version>.rpm
    mkdir 123
    cd 123
    vcdxrip -C /dev/hdd
    where /dev/hdd is d cdrom drive; it is extracting
    ls -lh(see d size of file )
    avseq001.mpg avseq002.mpg avseq003.mpg ......
    for single file extraction see --track/-t option
    vcdxrip --help or man vcdxrip
    vcdxrip -pv -t 3 -C /dev/hdd
    2) search n download cdfs packages from d is available in d internet)
    1st install the package needed for kernel(uname -r) module building from d distro cd/dvd disk
    tar zxvf cdfs<version>.gz
    cd cdfs<version>
    if error comes while compiling try another cdfs<version2>.gz
    ls *.ko
    insmod ./cdfs<version>.ko
    lsmod | grep cdfs
    cat /proc/modules | grep cdfs
    mount -t cdfs /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom
