    Hey

    Well I have SPIDERMAN, I ripped one disc to VCD fine. I am using the MPEG tools and using the MPEG file from the CDROM as the source, and ripping as a VCD.

    Like I said the first disc worked fine, now im trying to rip the second disc, and it will only rip half of the file! And i get the message about too many buffer packets or something, so i can only get half!

    How do i get the full file? How do i fix this message, grrr im soo close!

    Why in he** you want to convert an SVCD to a VCD?

    Use VCDGear to extract the SVCD disc into pure, plain MPEG-2 files and encode those with TMPGEnc -- the "DAT" files on SVCD (as well as VCD) discs are not "pure" MPEG compliant files, but instead have some additional headers and stuff.

    Hey again

    I extracted a pure MPEG - 2 file from the disc with MPEGTool but still when I try to use TMPGEnc to encode it it cuts out at the exact the same point, saying it exceeded the number of buffere overflow at 154557 or something like that..??

    The exact error message in TMPGEnc is:

    154557 s packets cause buffer underflow

    The MPEG file might cause error when played


    And it only encoded a litte under half of the file.. stops at this point everytime!!

    *cries*

    Your player plays VCD and does not SVCD? Try the trick I have invented (I think so) - take an .mpg file from your SVCD disk and burn VCD one with Nero 5.5.x switching OFF compatibility mode. My DVD player plays it w/o problems.

    In half? As in video output or in physical size limitation? Remember that VCD only accepts certain amount of data on one CD.

    Hey

    Well this is the story;

    I got SPIDERMAN on 3 discs, but its SVCD. I managed to convert the first disc to VCD using the TMPGEnc and then i burned in nero as a VCD and it worked fine.

    Now im on the second disc and it doesnt want to convert to a MPEG-1 file for me in TMPGEnc, i get the error at about 40% :

    (154557 s packets cause buffer underflow

    The MPEG file might cause error when played )

    So i tried just feeding the MPEG-2 to nero and burn as a VCD but when it analyzes it says its a MPEG-2 file, and if i turn of compatability it just squashes the minutes in half to like 32!

    I just cant convert the bugger to mpeg-1 to burn it??

    Not very wild guess: Your CD2 is broken.

    Hey

    Well i tried tricking NERO and it worked...

    I just ignored the standard stuff and went ahead and burned it, and boom it works like a charm. I was thinkig the disc was like 60mins long, but thats just the movie, so i messed up my posts a little.

    Anyway thanks for all of those who tried to help!
