Bung, nggak jelas info nya kok..
Where do you want to copy it? Do you have permission over the folder? have tried using the command in terminal to copy it? You are using dolphin?Thunar? i mean, what is the file manager you are using? Have you tried to copy it to the other folder? Have you tried using root account to copy it (just to check where is the problems come from).. maybe your vcd is damaged? Can you played the video from the vcd?

Hi, there's a few ways to do this:
:D
>K3B supports this
>Mplayer can play and rip these (great for me I'm on LM9 LXDE with that installed by default, I hope you do too)
Code: Select all
mencoder vcd://2 -o file.avi -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=2000

(Assuming the movie is the second title on VCD, this will create the file file.avi, which will be mpeg4 (divx) encoded movie with maximum average bitrate of 2000 Kb/s)
>VCDimager (find it in synaptic?) has a vcd ripper called vcdxrip
put the vcd in your optic driver
open the command line and from your home directory run:
Code: Select all
$ vcdxrip --nofiles

it copies the vcd's AVSEQ0x.DAT to your home as AVSEQ0x.MPG
:D

Well I am not sure but If your intention is to transcode the vcd to an avi or any other format, I used k9copy to rip my vcds to hard disk. I get the impression you just want to have the .dat file and be able to use a video app to watch it directly from your drive.
