    Can you provide me with detailed working steps of converting 2 VCDs (already burnt to CD) and burnt onto 1 DVD as well as other accompany tool for converting purpose as well as DVD burner?
    Thanks for the demonstration and assistance!

    There is no easy one click method that I know of.
    The video is probably very compressed and you want to avoid re-encoding it.
    The audio is probably mp2 format and has to be changed to ac3 if you wish it to be DVD format.
    The steps I used are:
    Demux the video and audio.
    Convert the audio.
    Remux the video and audio into a dvd container without re-encoding the video.
    The programs mentioned are probably available for download at afterdawn - do a search.
    Good luck.

    Demux the video and audio from the CD.

    Run TMPGENC
    Cancel the Wizard if it pops up.
    Click File >MPEG Tools > Simple Demultiplex
    Select the .dat file from the MPEGAV folder on the CD and open it.
    Select the output location for the demuxed files (the desktop?).
    Click Run.
    The output files are m1v and mp2
    After the files have been demuxed, close TMPGENC.

    Convert the mp2 audio to ac3 using DaudioK
    Load the demuxed mp2 audio, set the output format to AC3 and the sampling frequency to 48000, 2 channels.
    Click Play then click Convert.
    An ac3 file should be produced.
    Close DaudioK.

    Run Muxman.
    Load the demuxed m1v video and the new ac3 audio.
    Create a new folder to receive the new authored DVD files.
    Click Start.
    Close MuxMan.

    The new DVD folder can be burned to a DVD disk using ImgBurn.

    Run ImgBurn and select write files/folders to disk.
    Select the folder containing the output from MuxMan, insert a blank disk and Start.

    Update: check out AVStoDVD to convert VCD .dat file to DVD.
    It complained about the file type (.dat) but clicking 'Yes' to continue it accepted it and converted to DVD OK.
    Note that VCD resolution (352x240) is a legit resolution for DVD also.
