    First, as I wrote in the 'sticky' thread, you need to conver the DATs into 'true mpegs' (e.g. with VCDGear). After that, you can make a (S)VCD, always with VCDGear (it is written how to do it ion the 'sticky' threads of this forum).
    If you 'mount' the image (e.g. with Alcohol 120%)the .DAT files will be in a directory of the 'mounted' image (I assume E:\MPEG2, ig the .IMG comes from a SVCD and E:\MPEGAV if it comes from a VCD) and you won't need to extract .BIN --> .DAT, first.
    But remember: if the img comes from a VCD, you won't encrease the movie quality by making a SVCD or even a DVD with the movies extracted from there!!!

    VCDgear needs you to choose cue/bin --> MPEG, but the image is an .IMG.
    My suggestion is to 'mount' the image, with Alcohol 120% for example, on the Virtual drive (suppose E:\), simply copy E:\MPEGAV\AVSEQ01.DAT (E:\MPEG2\AVSEQ01.MPG if the image had been of a SVCD) on your disk: C:\where_you_want , finally select dat -->mpeg (or mpeg --->mpeg if all comes from a SVCD) in VCDGear, converting the file, then now is on your HD, into a 'true mpeg'.
    I hope Alcohol 120% knows how to deal with the 'vpd intellex img' (I never saw one), otherwise you'll have to burn the VCD on a CD-RW, first of extracting the 'riff file' from it.

    Can you post here the directory structure of the mounted image? For example:

    E:
    ...\EXT
    .....|-------LOT_X.VCD (4 KB)
    .....|-------PSD_X.VCD (4 KB)
    ...\MPEGAV
    .....|---AVSEQ01.DAT (500 MB)
    ...\SEGMENT
    .....|---ITEM001.DAT (100 KB)
    ...\VCD
    .....|-----ENTRIES.VCD (30 KB)
    .....|-----INFO.VCD (20 KB)
    .....|-----LOT.VCD (34 KB)
    .....|-----PSD.VCD (3 KB)

    so I can try to guess what you cold do?

    It hasnt got a directory structure just 2 folders with 2 subfolders ie
    + INCDB
    -CAT0000018 IN THIS FOLDER IS THE INCIDENT DAT
    + VPD_INTELLEX
    -CAMERA_00 IN THIS FOLDER IS VPD_INTELLEX IMG
