OK, that seems to be a problem. So my VCD seems to be broken and
consequently a (possible) bug in an older version of mplayer may 
have caused that it was possible to play this VCD:

**ERROR: ENTRIES.VCD/SVD signature not found

[15:08]rob at oberon:~> vcdrip -v -d --cdrom-device=/dev/cdrom 
**ERROR: weird psd size (251662081) -- aborting

And as I read through the Docs from vcdimager I think I found out, what
may be broken: AFAIR I just made an image of the files of the mounted VCD
and burned this. I did not make a 1:1 copy of the original VCD. This should
not work if I understand the Docs correctly.

This should be unnecessary now.
