I have some old vcd which burned years ago and now need to be edit and burn again, but have some problem there. VirtualDub can only open first several minutes and reports vcd damaged, so I wanna use videosplitter to extract all good parts, and I need locate all damaged frames, is there any software can do this?

Thx Baldrick, here is the result:
vcdgear choosed "Fix MPEG Errors" and "Remove CD-i MPEG Bumper" then showed: "Fixes:256869 Padding: 256868 Splits: 0", mediaplayer can played first minutes then freezed, VirtualDub can only open first minutes, but no damaged reported.
isobuster choosed "EXTRACT AVSEQ01.DAT" and ignore errors, after 1 hour reading, promopt an error, size of AVSEQ01.DAT is 0.
did I set them wrong?
Try playing it with VLC. It can skip over errors sometimes. If it can make it all the way through, there's hope of recovery. VLC can also transcode, though not great at that. But it might be worth a try.
If the CD itself is damaged, ISOBuster should have been able to extract most of the file. I would closely inspect the disc and look for physical damage, scratches, blotches in the dye, etc. Scratches you may be able to buff out. Blotches or damage to the reflective layer are permanent and not much hope of complete recovery. There is this guide for ISOBuster: https://forum.videohelp.com/topic125214.html
VirtualDub will choke on any break in the file, so not so great for repair or fixing errors of that type.
Thank you all,
Yes, played it somewhat smooth, just skim bits seconds, but edited in tmpgenc or virtualdub meet numerous data damaged errors, get down to nitty gritty, I would amplify vcd's volume , have to rerender em. I suppose there are all physical damaged, coz nero scaned out red blocks. I'll try ISOBuster later again.
I'm looking for that tool exactly, can locate all damaged frames.
VD can open first minutes, in that part, I tried Scan Video Stream For Errors, no errors. Seems it need know exactly damaged frames location for properly using Mpeg2Cut2. Scan manually do you means watch em? Player would freeze a bit times, that amount much less than tmpgenc meet.
