Hi, thanks for your try to help me, but the XCD does not seem to play.
I will attach the error message of mplayer in the end of the message.

This does not run corretly either :(
When I mount the XCD I see this file:

-r-xr-xr-x    1 paladin  root         701M 2003-03-28 12:55 movie.ogm.xcd.dat

I can not copy this to the hard disk.. and -vcd 2 -dumpstream does not
work either:

On trying to play or dump the XCD:

Playing VCD track 2
track 01:  adr=1  ctrl=4  format=2  00:02:00  mode: 1
ioctl dif1: Input-/Outputerror
Error selecting VCD track. (seek)
