Smile VCD to MPEG gets stuck --hlep plz

Dear Knowledgable Gurus,
Please assist me here. I have a few movies sent to me on VCD. I want to convert them to mpeg and store them on my Hard Drive. I use Isobuster or VCD gear. They work. But some of the VCDs get stuck at various %s. The DVD rom and CDR rom keeps flashing and the the process does not complete. Any suggestions or solutions.
Thanks a lot ....Tim

Copying VCD to Harddrive is what is done by Isobuster. Straight dat file copying give you a Cyclic redundancy error becasue of the way CD is writen. Any other ideas?

actually, during the copy process it seems to get stuck where the error is (around 37% for one of the VCDs) Vcd Dat files are already Mpeg format. When you watch the video using Power Dvd player, you can start at the 38% (passed teh error) and go to the end but whenever you get to the error there is no read recovery or error ignor. The CD/DVD rom goes spastic! I wonder if there is a way to start a copy process passed a certain error to the end... Or other ideas... Thanks for the quick response by the way super moderator-uncast!!!!
