    Ah, ok. Sorry for the noise. I had never seen a VCD before. I just tried
    to do
    xine vcd://
    one one of the computers and it worked perfectly.

    However, under windows, what I did was simply to open the disc in the
    explorer, look at the files, right-click on the largest file to open it
    with windows media player, or drag and drop it to copy it on the hard
    drive, without any special tool.

    I find it a bit deceptive that linux lets me mount the filesystem but not
    access the files. It would be actually better, I feel, if mount
    would refuse to work on a vcd and display some informative failure
    message rather than mount an unreadable filesystem...
