Filesystem or CD-ROM Problem : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

When i insert a VideoCD on my Macintosh (OS 8), it prompts me to initialize it. Under Linux, i'm able to read the files in the SVCD- directory. The files in MPEGAV (two 300MB files in this case) however, cause a read error. Could it be i have to use a special filesystem-driver, or is it not possible to read the VCDs with my CR-ROM?

Is that a VCD or SVCD? There is an important distinction between the two. Unlike VCD, SVCD is MPEG-2 and will require appropriate codecs to play. In PCs this is done mainly with installing a DVD-player program where MPEG-2 codecs are put by default. Don't know about MAC but it isn't anything about special filesystems or other.
