Is there a problem with ISO 9660 ?

in macOS edited January 2014

I'm trying to create an image from ISO 9660 CD (VCD).

Here is the disk copy log:

2003/02/04 11:14:33 Imaging "VideoCD1" into "VideoCD1.cdr"...

2003/02/04 11:14:33 Creating temporary image file...

2003/02/04 11:14:35 Volume "VideoCD1" appeared at "/private/tmp/ImgVolpXNEkI" (/dev/disk2s2).

2003/02/04 11:14:35 Permissions enabled.

2003/02/04 11:14:35 Copying contents of "VideoCD1" to "/private/tmp/ImgVolpXNEkI"...

2003/02/04 11:14:35 Copy agent encountered an error (5) copying "AVSEQ01.DAT". (Input/output error)

2003/02/04 11:14:35 Copy elapsed time: 0.301s

2003/02/04 11:14:35 Copy agent failed to finish copying contents of "VideoCD1".

2003/02/04 11:14:36 Image Volume operation failed with error 999 (internal error).

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot

    of course vlc reads the vcds just fine!

    I didn't think MacOS X supported the VCD format. That's why MacVCD is there.

    VLC can read the streams (like in a DVD), but they don't read these discs normally. For instance, you don't get a DVD menu with VLC.

    I haven't gotten any luck trying to read VCDs on the OSX, outside of MacVCD. Now, why Toast can make VCDs (and with VCDBuilder, SVCDs, that beats the crap outta me.

    What difference should it make for disk copy, whether is VCD or bunch of word docs..?

    Since i'm trying do that using CD/DVD master, it should make an image anyway, so ISO format must be a problem here, and not the content...

    But then again, if OS X doesn't support it, how come you can mount it and read it?


    **An update, i just tried to copy it on disc duplicator, and no luck as well, ???, defective CD???, plays ok though in VLC.. ***
