  1. I know I could just copy and paste the mpg files from the MPEGAV folder of a VCD but here's the thing. I have hundreds of VCD movies (They're cheaper than DVDs) and I want to back them up onto data dvd disks. I don't want to sit there renaming every single disk a and disk b, making new folders, etc. Also, many of my VCDs have trailers or special features.

    I didn't realize that DVD Decrypter can't rip a VCD to an ISO file.

    Is there a program that will rip my VCDs into ISO or BIN files without converting and losing any quality? I want to be able to put a disk in, type the name of the movie, and click a button.... Just like with DVD Decrypter.

    Thanks for any help!

    You don't need any ripper. Just use imgburn for example, see http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=6379

    No, you can't. You could get lucky some of the time, but definitely not all of the time. Imgburn as baldrick says.
    Have a good one,

  4. Thanks guys, this is exactly what I wanted. You guys are awesome

    Neo, I didn't know that copying and pasting doesn't always work. Now I feel even safer using Imgburn. Thanks again!

    If anyone reading this ever wants to rip a VCD to a hard drive so you can do something with the individual files you should use VCDGear.

  7. One more question please

    So far, I've had 3 VCDs that won't rip. The program stays stuck on analyzing the disks but it just won't start ripping. When I copy and paste the MPEGAV folder, it copies fine.

    Why is it doing that?

    Jman and corn, I will keep those programs in case I ever need to edit VCDs. Thanks!

    To better rip, try ISOBuster, as it has facilities for re-trying reads, etc.
    Use the "Extract MPEG Mode2Form2 tracks" technique: see this link on ISOBuster.com.
    Note that just "copying" the [MPEGAV] folder may not actually get the tracks, which may be why it isn't having a problem. Remember, those are actually just Links/Shortcuts/Aliases. The actual clips reside on completely separate tracks from the 1st track (which is the ISO portion), and they are formatted differently - no filesystem; just the raw data stream.

  9. Really? But if they were shortcuts, wouldn't the .dat files not play at all once the VCD is removed from my computer?

    I will try ISOBuster on the VCDs that don't work for ImgBurn; Thanks!
