    Can't mention "trade" here m8, against forum rules. try "rewording" your post (edit). It's considered piracy.

    Oops, I am sorry.
    I am new to copying dvds to vcd. however, thanks to this site I am now able to do it with success. I have been storing them on my external harddrive as mpeg1 files. Now the question...As I acquire other vcds I would like to store them on my drive as mpeg 1 files. How can I convert the mpegav file back to mpeg 1?
    Thanks
    Mike

    Why not leave them stored on your external hd as MPEG1 (VCD)?

    Please edit your first post m8

    The DVDs I convert to mpeg1 are staying on my drive. What I am refering to are those I buy. There are 5 or 6 files on the VCD one in where the movie is (mpegav). Can I store that and then burn it as a vcd or could it be converted to mpeg1 and stored to be burned later?
    Thanks

    I would use IsoBuster and extract the 5 or 6 files to your hd to a folder or a folder for each file. I wouldn't do it the other way because that is transcoding= lose video quality.

    You could also use VCDGear to get mpeg files off the VCD.
