Description of problem:
I cannot read files from SVCD cdroms. When I try I get an error.
However under Windows I can easily copy the files to hardisk.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert into the cdrom a SVCD
2. open nautilus and try to copy the mpg file to hd
What sort of filesystem is on a SVCD?
Well, I'm not sure...
I think it's similar to an iso9660, but it has no ECC.
The standard kernel drivers do not support treating SVCD file images as mpeg
video. SVCD is very different to iso9660. Its a small iso9660 file system in
track 0 with track 1, 2, .. n being the chapters of the SVCD/VCD recorded more
like an audio CD than anything else
Changing to enhancement request
To look at a SVCD, one can use the vcd-info or the vcdxrip program
