You will have to extract the original video from the VCD, demultiplex (also known as "demux") it, and remultiplex (remux) it using a program that will let you play with the audio offset. You may have to remux several times. Play it on your PC and if you think you have it sync, burn it again. You will need VCDGear to extract the video from the VCD and various things such as TMPGenc or commercial video editors such as MPEG2VCR (www.womble.com) to do the muxing to try to fic the audio sync problem. This is a heck of a lot of work, but if you are determined to do this, I suggest you go to www.vcdhelp.com and read everything you can about making your own VCDs before you get started. You probably wanted a simple solution where you just run a program and it fixes everything. There isn't one. It's a tedious, manual process you'll have to do to get the audio and video back in sync.
