    Does anyone know how to save a vcd onto harddisk sp I can make multiple copies without having to create an image file through nero each time - it takes for ever. I can rip a dvd but not a vcd!! Help

    Try popping the VCD into the CD Drive, then go to Windows Explorer. Open up the drive, then rightclick on the VCD in question, and choose Copy.

    Paste it into the folder you want to keep it in. It may take some time.

    Howdy there demonloop...

    Actually all you really need on the VCD CD is the .dat file stored under the MPEGAV folder...

    And depending on what version of Nero you're using ( I'm using version ) it will convert and create a VCD from that file...
