Full Version: Unable To Copy Vcd's
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
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

I've had the same problems with some VCD's when trying to copy the *.DAT file to the hard disk, while playing it was ok,[I've did this under Windows and Linux, same error with both].

I managed to copy the entire cd, with raw / don't correct errors.

Look here for a program that should let you do just about anything to a VCD:
