Just look at these threats and you get tones of answers. In short, you don't need a hardware decoder card and if you have Win 95/98 then just a matter of downloading Windows Media Player or if you want better Quality go to for a commercial version.

From what I understand, you want to turn a 40x CD Drvie into a stand- alone VCD player correct? If you do then you can forget it. It is possible but the cost is too high(almost as much as a regular VCD or DVD player). Also your drive is too fast for Video CDs. Anything over 24x is just too fast now.
