It's possible to view VCD on Windows Media Player. Go to "My Computer", click on your CD/DVD drive icon. Then you should see a string of icons, among which is one for MPEGAV (the usual format for VCD). Click on that, and you may find that it is listed as a .dat file. Open it with Windows Media Player. You should be able to see your VCD from there.
