iMac + Quicktime = help.... : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I just bought 4 vcd's (Dune, Stargate, Austin Powers 2, and Terminator 2: SE) and I can only get the last disk in each set to run the movie (i.e. the 2nd disk of Dune, Stargate, and Powers and the 3rd disk of T2). When I try to play the first disk (& first two disks of T2), I always get error messages either about input/output difficulties or that "the application program that created this file could not be found" (I'm trying to run the movies on my computer - an iMac DV SE - and with QuickTime 4). What's wrong here??? Please help with solution. Thanks.
