DAT -> VCD or DAT -> MPG -> VCD?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I have multiple .dat tracks on separate VCDs, and I want to combine them all into one VCD. Which is a better way of doing it?

DAT -> VCD means I copy all .dat files into the hard disk, then using Nero, drag the files into the project then burn. DAT -> MPG -> VCD means I convert the .dat files to .mpg using vcdgear, tmpgenc or other encoders, then burn the encoded file to Nero.

Is there a loss of quality when I directly burn a .dat file to VCD? Or do I really need the longer way?

I think you'd better use the 1st method you mentioned. It's unneccessary to convert the *.dat files again.
