The files on the VCD, are they MPEG already, and ready to be used as-is, or are they compressed? My Replay stores files in a compressed MPEG format that my numerous half-hearted attempts to extract have not been successful...

Though I wonder if one of the DVD-recording stand-alone options might work better for me (several shows on one DVD due to higher capacity), for $300 or less...
